How can I get this to work ?
I've installed the 'latest' version 3.0 Sidewinder software, including DirectX 5.2.
a) If I check Control Panel -> Game Controllers, then the Sidewinder is there with the status "not connected" and I can not get to the properties.
b) Scanning for resolutions I found that IBM Mwave does not support a digital joystick like the sidewinder ? Is this true ? what are the options ?
c) The readme of the sidewinder software states that one has to switch of sound in a game to avoid eratic button presses on an Aptiva ?

Your sound card is not compatible with the sidewinder, your only work around is to disable sound in your game.  Another option is to obtain a sb16 for about $35.00 that will work with your digital joystick.
