When the Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback game controller is connected to your computer in pass-through (light out) mode, through another device such as a Microsoft game pad, you receive the following error message
This behavior occurs when the game pad to which the SideWinder Force Feedback game controller is connected is in the wrong mode (the light is on).
The light on the game pad indicates that the SideWinder Force Feedback game controller is no longer the selected device.
If you press the Retry button before you press the Mode button on the game pad (to turn the light off), the error messages will alternate between "device disconnected" and "power disconnected" until you set the game pad to pass-through mode.
Before you press the Retry button, press the Mode button on the game pad to restore pass-through (light off) mode.
