John, I still use one but then again I haven't turned on my SW2008 yet. If I get some breathing room this week I'll try and load '08. I wanted to get a new USB spaceball and maybe this will be my chance.
Thanks for the "Hack"
There is a new driver that works with 2008 for the newer (Traveler, voyager, pilot) 3DConnexion units. It can be downloaded from the 3D connexion website. It is not for the serial vesions though - bummer!
Just for reference, I've been able to get three Spaceball 3003C's (Serial) up and running with SW 2008, using their existing drivers (version"3-6-3"? dated from back in 2004), and using the SW plug-in-only from the Spaceball 5000 USB driver file (version 3.5.6 is currently on the 3DConnexion 'site).
It's worked very well for me.
Also used the same set-up to get a 5000-Serial working with SW 2008.
Just thought I'd mention that the 2.8.2 is not the only driver version that will work with this "hack". The important part seems to be the updated SW plug-in.
