SideWinder Game Controller Software

Microsoft have been a bit slack labelling their SideWinder Game Controller Software CDs - they all read 'version 3.0' when in fact they're a variety of 3.00, 3.01 and 3.02. Check the volume label of the CD in Windows Explorer when the CD is in your drive to be sure - it'll usually read SW301..., SW302... or similar. In case your CD isn't up to date, here's a link to Microsoft's download of 3.02.

One quick note - the 3.02 that you get on the CD is later than the one you download ... don't you just love quality version control ?

Another quick note - if you're using the USB version of the Force Feedback Wheel, then you'll be running version 4.0 of the SideWinder Game Controller Software; don't overwrite this with version 3.02. In fact, 3.02 and 4.0 work alongside each other, to ensure USB and pre-USB controllers can both be supported at the same time. It's also worth mentioning that Windows XP doesn't support game controllers connected via a game port.
