I have a Microsoft Sidewinder Precision Pro joystick and I have used it for FS2000 with no problems at all. Now, I've acquired FS2002 Pro and I have problems with it. Even though I plug it in before turning the computer on, it fails to work.

Should I call Microsoft or reinstall the Sidewinder driver? I've reinstalled the driver many times and it fails to work. I really want my joystick so that I can fly better.

Thanks in advance.
