I can't get CFS2 to recognize/use my joystick. Its a MS Sidewinder Precision Pro (USB port). My computer says the joystick is hooked up perfectly but I can still only fly with the keyboard. What do I need to do to get the game to "see/read" my joystick? I'm new to this so if you respond, simplicity would help. Thanks..

better check you contoller configuration inside the game, and make sure it is set for the sidewinder.
make sure you are using direct x version 7an and run dxdiag.exe and look under the input devices tab for any driver problems.
