    Hi
    I have a Sidewinder ForceFeedback PRO joystick, it plugs into my pc's gameport. Ever since I got my new Creative X-Fi sound card when I try to add my Joystick in 'Game Controllers' in Control panel it comes up with an error saying "Your game port or game port drivers are not properly configured. Consult Device Manager". I have the latest sound card drivers. What can i do to fix this? Thanks.

    No, I didn't need the drivers as Windows XP automaticly installed them. I didn't need the drivers before I got my new Sound card.
