Long story short, I want to use the G27 shifter. My G27 wheel is dead (power surge) and I bought the Thrustmaster wheel I bought a Serial to USB converter from a local store. The shifter light lights up few times but it does not stay on. I do not see the device under the device manager and of course none of the games see the shifter. I understand this is a hack but is it anyway I can save my wallet from 100 dollars from buying a shifter?
