Set the joystick's ID to 1 in Windows. Do this by:
Click Start/Settings/Control Panel. Double-click the Gaming Options icon. Now, assure that your joystick's Status is OK. If it is, then click the Controller IDs tab and assure that Microsoft Sidewinder is at ID 1. If it's not, force it to 1. You may have to set whatever device is at 1 to 9 or something temporarily before setting Sidewinder to 1.
In addition, there is a Sidewinder control panel that you can use to equate joystick movements to Keyboard equivalents. It is assessible via: Start/Programs/Microsoft Hardware/Game Controllers/Sidewinder Central.
Hope this helps, and good luck.
