    Microsoft sidewinder precision racing wheel

    Can anyone tell me if they have been able to get this wheel working
    correctly with Vista?
    I have tried but find that the left pedal does not map, so you are left with
    no brakes.
    What equivalent wheel would be recommended?
    Many thanks for any advice
    Regards

    I had the sidewinder force feedback wheel for yrs but it did not like
    Vista..Never a problem with the pedals but other little bugs...I went out
    and paid the bucks for the Logitech G25 wheel and all I can say is Damn !!
    this wheel is Awesome !!...Very easy to install and configure....I race a
    lot of different games both new and old and the wheel is perfect in
    all.......Just my 3 cents

    Thanks for your response Drew, I will have to look at that wheel. I have to
    say that it's a shame I can't use my wheel as I really like it. Time moves
    on though!

    Definitely time moves on....I always thought the sidewinder was the best and
    was upset when Microsoft stopped making there wheels....But then I got the
    G25.....If you have the money consider it you will not be sorry
