Your Gaming Device is Not Connected...

  • Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback Pro, version 1.0

When you click Properties in the Game Controller tool in Control Panel, you receive the following error message even though the gaming device is connected properly and "OK" is displayed in the Game Controller Status column:

Game Device Error: Your gaming device is not connected correctly. Ensure that it is plugged into your computer.
