Belkin F3U200-08INCH DB15 8-Inch USB Joystick Adapter for SideWinder

Too low to display

I bought the Belkin DB15 USB Joystick 8" Adapter with hopes of using my Microsoft Sidewinder Forcefeedback joystick (with a game port plug) on a new Vista machine. I first tried the plug adapter and joystick on my old Win XP machine. It did not work. The USB port did not recognize the plug. I then tried it on my new Vista machine. It still did not work either. No joystick controls and no feedback of any kind. I later learned that Vista discontinued support of game ports thus I now have a Microsoft Sidewinder Forcefeedback paperweight. This cable was useless on both OS's. My only remaining thought is my XP machine does have a game port and the Microsoft Sidewinder Forcefeedback still works on that.
