I just recently purchased a Makopad PC by Interact and it's not showing up as connected. I also have a Gravis Thunderbird, which does the same thing. The MS Sidewinder Gamepad I bought a few months ago works fine. Runs great, but I want to use the analog that the Makopad has.
PII 300
176 MB Ram
ATI Rage 8MB
VooDoo2 12MB
Diamond Monster Sound Card
those are the highlights.
Any suggestions appreciated.

Best I can suggest is to update your drivers to the latest ones. I had trouble with my Interact V4 Force Feedback wheel (Force feedback would stop in-game) with my Soundblaster Live! Value until I updated the drivers of both the Steering Wheel and the Soundcard.

My system:
128MB PC-100 SDRAM
3Dfx Voodoo3 3000
Soundblaster Live! Value
Windows 98 with DirectX7.0
(used to have a Soundblaster AWE 64, until I discovered that my MS Sidewinder 3D Pro couldn't be detected under Win98 even with the latest drivers - changing to the new SB Live! solved that problem)
