    Hello, I bought a Sidewinder from PC World about a year ago because I thought it was pretty standard and easy to set up being USB. Back then I connected the game controller to my front USB port and Windows Me detected hardware and began to install it. I then started Rayman 2 and it worked fine (it was the pad that Ubisoft had suggested). It went in my drawer and I hardly played on Rayman 2 again. I bought Windows XP a year ago and now I decided to have a go! I inserted the USB cable into the port and...nothing.

    :eek:

    I have played around in control panel but nothing seems to happen, it won't work with Rayman 2 and it doesn't make any sounds when I insert and remove it from the port. I have checked the official sidewinder website but I can't find anything!

    :confused:

    Please can someone help me get my Gamepad working! Any replies are extremely appreciated!
