    Hi all,
    I've got a fairly old steering wheel (USB 2.0) and I've always had problems with the Acceleration of this steering wheel..
    The X-axis is good (aka Steering), but I can only accelerate (and brake) by 100% or 0%, which makes driving with out TC or ABS impossible...
    I have the latest software but in my Calibration Screen it is being recognized as Button 3 for Gas Pedal and Button 4 for Brake Pedal...
    If anybody has a solution for this please help me...

    The steering wheel has 3 modes:
    Green light: X-Axis is same as explained above, Y-Axis idem,
    Red Light: Y-Axis is explained above,
    Green & Red Light: Nothing happens...

    Some help might be appreciated :(
    I get sick of spinning around because TC fails...

    It could be theres something wrong with the potentiometers, but its odd that it give out a reading of either off or on.

    I would try downloading a few different version of drivers from the manufacturer of that wheel, see if older/newer or even drivers from a different model wheel make it any better.

    Let us know how you get on :)

    Strange... It seems to recognize my gas pedal as Button 3 and Brake pedal as Button 4 now :S
    No movement on the Y-axis...

    Further Info:
    Button 3 and 4 do work normally,
    I got nice lights at my steer telling me the amount of power i push onto my pedals, meaning that it does recognise different amounts of gas put in...

    I can't find the current or the older software belonging to this steering wheel :O

    Problem solved in 2 ways:
    Have got an old steering wheel which steering is broken but Y-axis works like a charm,
    Problem with my current wheel is the third mode, its broken but required for Y-axis -,-'
