Microsoft and force feedback


I have a Winter special P4 Computer from Data Drs, with XP. Works great!! Also have 3 Microsoft Flight Sims with a older Microsoft Forcefeedback Joystick. All used to work on my older computer with 98SE. Now I'm ready to fly, however, from what I can gather, it's not going to be possible because Microsoft does not support the joystick anymore. Is this possible? I can't believe it!! Surely there is a way to get a driver that is XP compatible to run these investments. Please help !!

Well, speaking from personal experience I can tell you that I myself was disappointed with this news but I decided to try and plug it in anyway and to my surprise the Operating System pickup it up automatically I would suggest that you try it on your system, you should have the same results because he drivers are already loaded on Windows XP Operating System so you dont need the drivers.
