What stick is it?Did you also change to XP when you installed the new hardware? Sounds like it might be a Sidewinder Force Feedback 1?Any more info?Simon

One quick thing to try would be renaming your fs2002.cfg to fs2002.old, then start FS2002. FS2002 will reinitialize, and may recognize the joystick again. If it doesn't work, just delete the new fs2002.cfg, and rename fs2002.old back to fs2002.cfg....-John

Hi !Thanks for your response.I tried to renamed the fs2002 cfg, but it still won'T work. The stick is a sidewinder force feedback Typ 1. The matter is that before the cpu change i allready had win xp and the stick worked fine. The problems started after i installed the new mobo and cpu......

Yeah... I had this problem with my SW FF1 stick too. I gave up in the end and bought the version 2 stick. Exactly the same but with different plastic moulding... and drivers... Grrrrrr!! What a cash-in for MS!!!I believe someone found a solution to this Sidewinder ForceFeedback 1 thing... I'll try and find it and report back.Simon

I've got the same problem.One question, with XP have you got any SP1 components installed? (Check Add/Remove Programs in control panel)I did a full XP 'Fresh Install' and first thing I did was check out FS - Not a problem. And I am using the orig SW1 stick.Everything worked fine. Only things I can put it down to are either SP1 (I only had one component on there which I don't remember updating), or my onboard Intel sound card. I too have just upgraded to a P4.Hope this helps....

Hi all,thanks for your help.I think i solved the problem. The matter was that there were some problems with my soundblaster live and the onboard audio (gameport). i had to disable the soundcard gameport and enable the gamport on the mobo. Now all works fine.Once again thanks you very much and best wishes from germanyCarstenP.S. I don't think that the actual german position on the worldwide fight against terror is not correct. I still stand behind the US and UK. Best regards !
