Yeah... the disk drivers won't work. You should be able to install the drivers that come with Windows 2000. They included drivers for their sidewinder joysticks with the OS.Control Panel... Game Controllers... Add... MS Sidewinder (autodetect)Hope this helps,Simon.

My comp has msgame.vxd, 20KB in C:WINDOWSSYSTEM. But I have WinME so it might not work on your PC.

thanks, I got the file but it did not work. It was worth a try. The file I need is called msgame.SYS not .VXD, when I go to the system file nothing shows up because the installer is looking for msgame.sys and not msgame.vxd I guess. Thanks a lot anyway.If anyone does have the msgame.sys file in windows2000 please could you email it to me? It is not on the installer CD for some strange reason, and the joystick will not work without it!Ric
