    Thanks...but the USB ports are side by side - player 1 to left. We tried both.

Hi,
Have a look at this:

The game auto-calibrates the wheel when you plug it in, so it should work ok.. but you see in the video how the red wheel controls settings? maybe scroll through there..

Hope you make some progress :)

You need to set up the controller ,, What you need to do is when you start the game, go into config / settings then controls, select the right button or right tun and assign that to the stearing by turning right do the same for left and follow the instructions to the rest of the pedals etc.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the Logitech Driving Force GT has a claimed 900 degrees lock-to-lock turns. And as steering is one of its most basic function, then in all likelihood, there is a hardware fault. Still, it would be best to try and re-install the software/driver, perform the necessary setting, configuration and calibration. If still a no go, then pls claim warranty replacement.

It could also be tried that said Logitech Driving Force GT be installed in another computer just to determine if it is a driver/OS/PC issue and not hardware as initially proposed.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    My apologies, I was under the impression it was for a PC game or a PS3 PC emulator.

    Still it would appear to be a hardware problem.

Plug the wheel into the top USB port. When the game starts up, the wheel will auto-calibrate. Although the wheel will also calibrate if you plug it into the bottom USB port, it will not be enabled. You must use the top USB port for Player 1.

    You may have the wheel plugged into the wrong USB port. Unplug your wheel and replug it into the other port. If you are playing with two wheels, make sure they are plugged into different ports on the PS2. Lastly, only Player 1 will be able to navigate the main menus.

What is the proper way to hold and use the Racing wheel for Gran Turismo 5?


you dont. its not really designed for gran turismo at all. i would recommend just sticking to the dualshock controller or if your seriously into racing fork over some money for the logitech driving force pro. it features force feedback, pedals, gear shifter and pedals for acceleration and braking. its pretty much as close to driving as you can get from a video game other logitech wheels are available with clutches six shifters and interchangeable wheels but the driving force is the best for its price alone.

What is the usage of the red button on the wheel?


The only game that supports these features AFAIK is Gran Turismo 5 prologue, for which this wheel was jointly developed. The Red ring, center button and +/i let you modify settings while the cars is on the track such as abs traction control, awd, etc.


Other games may someday support them, but who knows.

Feel and force (force feedback) has just stopped!


check that the power supply is working properly

the wheel works with out the power supply

try and plug the plug in a different socket and see if it works
so if you have a voltmeter / multimeter check for voltage in the output plug of the power adapter

Logitech Driving Force GT wheel won't work at all


Ive had this problem yesterday. Confirmed.
Call them to have words. Have respect and they refund you full.
Towards the G25.
I did that. Cause if I broke 1 DFGT then I will break more.
I think that the G25 withstands even drifters technique.

Gran Tourismo 5 problem


Ensure PS3 is up to date, V.2.41. Also GT5 Prolouge Spec 2 should be intalled. This should clear any bugs in the system and sort GT5. A new update for GT5 is out on the 1st August.

Generally the game options must be set to use the wheel instead of the standard controller. In Gran Turismo 4, for instance, there is an options screen where you can configure the steering wheel.

what model is it? (though all logitech wheels are supposed to be compatible)
the main problem is probably that there are few games/demos which actually support racing wheels. try getting the gran turismo HD concept for free, that supports racing wheels
