TrackMania does not like Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 Joystick

Recently, I bought a copy of TrackMania2 Canyon - a racing game I like very much. However - at seemingly random occasions the game just froze. The whole application just froze and I could do nothing but kill the app in taskmanager. I fiddled with all the available options to no avail. After quite some time I realized that the problem only occured when I used my good old Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 Joystick. If I play the game with just the keyboard or with a gamepad I happened to have lying around - all is fine. Well, of course this device is a bit outdated and is discontinued - but works still perfectly and I like it very much. I have no idea what the problem is or what to do about it. I could not find any updated drivers or something so far. Should I buy a different controller or is there some solution for this problem?
