Joystick woes

Hi... I have a P100 running Windows 95B. I have a 3 axis 4 button joystick plugged into a SB16 ISA card. When I try to add a joystick, WIN95 wont accept it - it returns me to the initial joystick page showing no joystick entries. It even wont let me add a standard 2 button JS. I know the port works as other games let me use a joystick through it. PLEASE HELP

First, I would suggest you download the latest driver off their web site. If you are in the US, go to http://www.soundblaster.com/asp-scripts/download.asp?file=/creative/drivers/sb16awe/sbw9xup.exe&Agrmt=slicense.html

If you are outside the US, go to http://www.creativelabs.com and select your location first then select Latest Drivers.

See if that fixes things before we get down and dirty.

Also, you say that Win95 doesn't recognize it, yet other games do. What do you mean by this? Aren't you running Win95 for these other games or are you booting to DOS?

David Levine..good  advice I agree.  One of windows 95  unique features is is dynamic plug and play capability.  If your system cannot reckognize this, and SB 16 is a much older card, and you get a new joystick...(is it starting to sink in)  read the requirement notifications dat come on the packages see..  We as consumers overlook these things cause were too excited to get home and fart around with these things never knowing about conflicts until they occur.  If upgrading the drivers dont fix the problem,  and you got the dang thing calibrated and all, take it back,,,get your money...to hell with dem.  Hmm pentium 100 huh and SB16 too? Geesh, do yourself  a favor..dont go on spending your hard earned money on crap like joysticks and games...go out and get a new processor and sound card.. maybe a (Kensington  track ball) my choice for pc gaming along with the keyboard. Hey joysticks are the easy way out...trust me, a track ball is da sheeatt! .
