    Hy!
    I bought a few weeks ago the steering wheel. But one day is not working.
    Windows will recognize , but not in the usual place the Device Manager.
    Perhaps need to be updated or a new firmware?
    SteelSeries support does not help me.
    How to fix it?

    What do you mean windows will recognize but not in the usual place ?


    if its not registering in the Device manager, I hate to say it. But you have officially got a Paper weight now. And As far as i know, SteelSeries themselves wont be able to help, as they have (had) a Very limited amount of wheel (In House) to deal with warranty's (YES warranty is possible but might take weeks of back and forth with them as I was forced to do) Took me roughly 2-3 month's before they agreed to send out a new unit.

    This is a Common issue with this wheel, It just somehow flashes itself and render's it Useless. Sorry i cant be of more help.
