Hi folks, I need help with this issue, I've been googling for hours and can't seem to find anything relating to it (as seems to be the case with a lot of win98 issues). going a bit crazy. I am running Windows 98 under VMWare and have my joystick plugged into a USB 3.0 plug. When I run the Sidewinder install CD, during the step where it asks me to plug the joystick into a USB I get an error message: "Setup is unable to detect whether the controller is connected" I follow the setup instructions, install the win98 drivers, everything but I always get the message and then It also doesn't appear in Gaming Options in the Controllers tab. Once I had even left it plugged in before step 2 of the setup and I saw the stick center and the resistance was there but it still gave me the message. Any ideas?
