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.
system:
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:
PII-350
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)
