Subject: USB joystick not detected-strange phenomena
I have a Microsoft SideWinder Presicion 2 USB joystick connected to a SE440BX Intel motherboard computer running Win2K. If I shut down my computer and turn it on again, the joystick is usualy not immediatly detected. Disconnecting it and immediatly re-connecting doesn't help. It would only get detected if I disconnect the joystick, let it "rest" for a few hours and then plug it in again. I have all the latest drivers for the motherboard and SP3 for Win2K.
There is no Sidewinder driver for Win2K (plus, this problem also appears on WinXP).
The problem is only with the joystick since a printer, a scanner and a digital camera I have are connected to the USB and works fine, they are always detected.
Any idea what causes the lost connection to the joystick on power off-on?
