I am raceing with a steering wheel. everything was fine and it would sync with no problems. all of a sudden when i turned it own all 4 lights flash continuasly and will not sync. can still use controls but when engine reaches redline, rpms shoot up and car slows like its in neutral. does the same with ps2 controller other wheels and i even bought another adapter but does the same. i recovered my consol back to original config. nothing is helping. like i said it was working for about 4 months then suddenly this happened. anyone have any idea. please e-mail me and let me know

Keith, The wheel you have has an intentional dead spot (0) in the center position. There are several ways to assign buttons, and even select a different center, but in the center position, it will always be (0) The PS2 version of this racing wheel lacks the proper calibration settings to make the (0) zone smaller like other analogue controllers. I have the same issues with the same racing wheel for the Xbox, and other after market controllers. The manufacturer does not consider analogue "sensitivity" when making a controller. That keeps costs down, and lets them produce an "Average" product, instead of a "SYSTEM STANDARD QUALITY" product. A prime example of this, is the Wheel in question. (0) is hands off of the wheel centered. +1(right) 1/8 rotation before connection for controls. Think of the wheel as a piece of pie. you only get 1/2 rotation in either direction. The concept 4 slices it into 1/8 for analogue control. A quality wheel (expensive) slices the pie into 1/16. I hope this helps. When it comes to racing wheels, it's user preference.
1, Was there no place to post questions about the PS2? Your pic is suggesting the PS3. This controller is definably not for the PS3.2, I've had one of these controllers for the PS2 though, and think I can help. Try taking all other controllers out, or disabling them, then while holding the connect button, insert the receiver in the controller #1 port on the PS2. It should auto sync to player 1.
Your wheel needs to be synced. Press the sync button (it has 3 arrows on it) on the xbox360. Then press and hold the sync button on the wheel (lower right, next to the green light, also has 3 arrows on it), for about 3 seconds, then release. This should get you synced right up. :)
this is a problem with some ps3's especialy the high GB ones like mine. they made it so most if not all of the ps2 games cannot be played to cut down on price and to leave room for all the memory. so you can still play ps1's but you cant play ps2's. sorry
could be that the adapter is a 3rd party adapter and that would be it doesn't pass the qualtiy that Sony requires before it puts its stamp of approval on the item which means your taking a chance on the item working.
See if you can find an item that is approved by sony and then try that.
