microsoft sidewinder force feedback 2 is dead
 
I was hoping to find someone that might have a clue as to how to troubleshoot this device. I was going to change out the usb cable. But I see 5 wires in the original cable and 4 in the one I was going to change it out with. The joystick is not recognized at all by the computer, and the light does not come on either. I have the bottom off, it seems the power supply works but I can't prove it.
Right now its just dead.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Figured out the issue. I used a 2nd usb cable, that had shielding, the 5th wire is the shielding. Connected it all up and....it works.
