Hi,

I wonder if anyone can help. My son is trying to use a microsoft sidewinder precision 2 joystick on an apple mac computer and is struggling. It starts off by working fine then after about 40 seconds it drops out and he can't use it. He is getting very frustrated as he is trying to do some training. Does anyone know of anything he can do to get it to work or alternatively can anyone recommend one to buy which will work with the apple computer. Many thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer. :)

I have tried downloading the gamepad companion app and still only works for about a minute and then the lines on the screen all of a sudden go the opposite way to which they are supposed to be going!
