    just bought a new USB port card and MS Sidewinder Gamepad to connect to it. the gamepad seems to be set up fine, but i can't get it to work in any of my games. These include: EASports NBA Live 2000, High Heat Baseball 1999 (that one will work until the game is about to start, and then it freezes up), Need For Speed II, and Quake II. I have DirectX 8.1.
    does Sidewinder simply not work in these games, or could there be another cause? NBA Live 200 is especially problematic. It runs really slowly since i connected the controller, though i have a k62-500 with 256 mb of RAM and a 16MB Riva TNT video card.

    i bought the sidewinder because i thought it was a fairly standard and compatible controller, but does anyone recommend a different brand for max compatibility? Any help on this issue would be most appreciated.

    Thanks,
    abcowan
