MS Sidewinder Strategic commander Drivers

Hi , does anyone have the drivers for a Sidewinder Strategic commander controller? i have plugged the device into my pc and windows has no problems detecting and installing it, but when i go to game controllers on control panel, it is not there...

I know the controller is fairly old now so could there be a compatibility issue with usb2?

I am using Windows XP professional with SP2.

iI have already tried the microsoft site but it appears that the item has now been discontinued.

Just for future reference, you do need to download 2 files to make it work probably due to download restrictions on the site..

Thanks once again.
