Sidewinder Gamepad USB what Version?

  ria 17:34 28 Apr 2003

Yesterday I e-mailed the following
I am interested in purchasing a Microsoft Sidewinder Gamepad USB and some games from you.
The one you are selling has the Mfr Code 486-00077
After doing a search on Microsoft's web side this Code is not found. Instead the Mfr Code is 486-00074.
Can you please tell me what the difference is. I am running Windows XP.

I had the not very helpful anwer:

Dear Sir,Madam,

Thank you for your enquiry to Customer Services at,
Unfortunately we cannot offer you this type of pre-sales help anymore,
you will need to refer to the manufacturers of the parts directly for
further information and compatibility details.

Does any one know what the difference is?
