I've been attempting to reproduce this type of problem with a WingMan Gamepad on XP or 2000 using the gameport. So far, I haven't seen any failures in calibration. We are aware that a number of non-standard gameports have issues in Windows 2000 and XP, but these are more related to device detection and not calibration. Also, this shouldn't be a problem with a well-known device like a Creative Labs Sound Blaster card.
Could you please send us more detailed information so that we can research it? You can find the information we would need listed on the team section of this site: http://www.wingmanteam.com/team.htm
The more information, the better. It's very difficult to track down compatibility problems without all the details. If you know of other people having this problem, please try to get their information and forward it to us. If you have a lot of information to send, I recommend sending me an e-mail rather than posting a very long message here.
It's possible that this isn't a hardware specific problem, it could be a software problem due to a driver conflict or a system resource issue. For example, we've recently become aware of an issue with some problems regarding a third party USB 2.0 driver which intermittently knocks out the gameport on some systems. Thanks to the help of others posting here, we were able to track down and reproduce the problem and then inform the driver's developer that there was an issue.
So, hopefully with some research and information, we can track down and resolve these calibration problems.

Good luck with this, thats basicly the same problem I have and a lot of other people I know have the same problem. Solution? None, Logitech never responds and this message board isn't much better

I've installed the profiler software and all the other stuff. My soundcard is Creative Sound Blaster PCI.

Gamepad shouldn't require any calibration. Which gamepad do you have? Which sound card?
Although Profiler doesn't support gameport device under 2000 and XP, it's still a good idea to install the latest software and drivers. After that, go to game control panel and choose ADD Logitech Wingman Digital Device.

I've experienced some problems with my gamepad. After a big struggle even to get it work in windows 2000 (The gamepad's connected to the gameport), I can't calibrate it well. I've tried a thousand times, and every single time the x axis on the movement buttons tilts to the bottom left corner when i move the axis to the left. Any ideas on getting it to work? E-mail me your possible solutions
