Uploader Notes

It's Sidewinder Game Controller Software 4.0. Should make controllers (USB) that don't work with v3.0 work.

BTW, this one should work now, the other one posted by me doesn't.

"Very large file. Downloaded it in hope that this USB version could work with a db15 /USB adaptor. Sorry, it doesn't. There may be other issues, such as Win98se v. XP or 2000, but never even go to that level. Not saying that the driver is bad per se, just that it did not work for me with a Sidewinder game pad a USB/DB15 connector and running Win98se. Maybe next time.&q

"I have a Sidewinder Precision Racing Wheel (w. Pedals) USB, the default drivers installed in WinXP did not set up the pedals right (both just work as turning the wheel). This driver fixed this issue, thumbs up!"

"no support for their own hardware..

like dropping the whole sidewinder series straight away when releasing the first XBOX console..

For a force feedback joystick that had the price of a complete advanced PC miditower/system"
