Tony,XP does include a driver to run it, but with no force-feedback! It also has terrible response and feel with that driver - almost uncontrollable with some programs.MS chose not to offer any updated driver for the FF2 for XP - considering that both of these are their own products, it's a very poor decision on their part.I was forced to go out and purchase the new Force Feedback 2 USB (which works like a charm when used with the new downloadable driver).

Tony,My mistake - I was thinking of another controller!As long as you have the Version 4.0 software for the FF2 USB, it will operate properly with the XP operating system. No download is needed.
