Jason Ho posted a topic in ThrustmasterHello, I bought the T150 PRO FFB, and had it working on my PC. The first time opening and setting everything up was fine, the drivers installed correctly with the wheel connecting and calibrating fine. After the restart to finish the driver install, everything was in order. The control panel showed the wheel separate from the other devices and specifically as a T150, and the device manager also showed the wheel as a T150. The firmware was fine, showing a different settings panel from the normal windows game controller settings. I opened up Automobilista and the wheel and FFB were all perfectly fine, with all the buttons working. However after trying rFactor for a while and then going back to Automobilista, the FFB wasn't there anymore. I opened up the firmare and tried the effects and they were all working fine, so i assumed that it was the game. Again though when I checked the firmware, i noticed that whilst the wheel and t3pa pedals were working, the buttons were off. All the buttons except for buttons 11 and 12 were illuminated, meaning they were on, whilst I was unable to get buttons 11 and 12 to illuminate in the firmware. I exited my race session in game and went to the control mapping, and it would not let me change anything, as it showed that button 13 was being continually pressed. My first course of action was to reinstall the drivers, which I did and restarted the PC without checking the wheel other than taking the USB out and back in as the installation instructed. It still calibrated properly so I didn't assume otherwise. After the restart, I went to the control panel to check for the wheel. However, it was displayed as 'Thrustmaster FFB wheel' with a generic gamepad icon rather than the T150. I could not find the T150 firmware when clicking on properties, rather it only showed the normal game controller settings. I then tried turning the wheel, where it became very resistant and automatically returned to centre after I let go. I'm quite frustrated by this, having already done multiple driver reinstalls. It seems as if the driver install detected just a g eneric Thrustmaster FFB wheel due to the issue, and therefore didn't install the specific firmware or drivers for my T150, so I tried the Bootloader method, which detected the T150 Bulk drivers fine, and it allowed me to choose to install them. However, during the installation, after auto-calibrating, the same generic Thrustmaster FFB game controller showed up on control panel and device manager. I've already contacted Thrustmaster Support via email, but it has been 4 days so I'm trying my luck with this forum. I'm aware of another post about a generic Thrustmaster FFB wheel issue on these forums, but the solution was just simply trying another USB port. Please help, I really do want my wheel working again! Could it also be a physical issue, perhaps with the wires or even a faulty wheel? It was working at one point, and things such as auto-calibration and connecting to PC are working, so I assume not but I'm really desperate to get to the bottom of this. Thanks!
