Default Windows 7 game controller software

I'll bet somebody has already asked this but I didn't see it anywhere.

Now that I have my WONDERFUL Windows 7 I find I can't use my Microsoft Sidewinder Precision Racing Wheel anymore........Just Lovely!!!!!!, they stopped supporting it..........I just LOVE Microsoft.....doesn't everybody???????

So you can see already what I am going to ask.........is there some kind of FIX for it or do I have to buy a BRAND NEW ONE????

I'll ckeck back a little later, thank you'all.

Microsoft Windows 7 drivers compatibility: 69% (1839 votes)

Sometimes it works ,sometimes it doesn't ????

Maybe time to buy a new wheel anyway...

If it was supported in Vista, it should be supported in Win 7. Use the same driver.

It works fine for me. I have never had an issue with mine. Just a lot of other issues.

With the release of Windows 7, you can now upgrade to the latest version of Windows that adds great functionality and also requires less computer power than the Windows Vista.
