Vista and InterAct V3 steering wheel won't work...

I bought an InterAct V3 Advanced FX steering wheel for my PC to use with Dirt Track Racing 2. It's actually USB and has a CD for install. For some reason Windows Vista fails to recognize the device. I went through the add/detect new hardware in the control panel...no dice. I looked for updated drivers from InterAct...it seems their website doesn't exist anymore.

If it was named with Vista it is obviously made for it!

SOURCE: Need CameraMate Windows Vista Driver

I got my CameraMate software to install with Vista but it was a pain in the, well, you know. The install would not clear screens, so I had to manually close screens to get to the prompts hidden underneath to procede. Eventually, it got in there.

Video capture looked good, but no sound. So I thought I'd just route sound to my built in audio. Ok, still nothing. But fiddling with things got it to work, only with an echo. PITA!!

Also, the CamerMate sound DID appear in sound menu. If I enabled it, instant blue screen crash. I didn't think that was possible with Vista. Oh well.

I'm going to rip out the drivers and trash the device. It worked fine under Win2K, except for the speed test on some machines. When I can get a Sabrent PCI capture board for $17, or a full-featured Hauppauge board for $60, why mess with this, when the company won't support it?

Hello dcipher,

This is due to a missing Windows file called input.inf. The solution is as follows:
In Windows XP, you can use the MSCONFIG utility as described in the following steps:

  1. Click Start->Run.
  2. Type msconfig in the Open field, and then click OK.
  3. Click the Expand File button.
  4. Type input.inf in the File to restore box.
  5. Type the path of the Windows XP .cab file where you want to restore the file from in the Restore from box. If you don't know the patch, click the Browse From button to locate the Windows XP .cab file.
    Note: The Windows XP .cab files are stored in the I386 folder on the Windows XP CD.
  6. Type C:\windows\inf\ in the Save file in box. This assumes that Windows XP was installed to the default directory. If Windows was not installed to the default directory, you will need to adjust the path to point to the correct directory.
  7. Click the Expand button.
  8. Click OK. If you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart.
After extracting the file and restarting, try installing the mouse software again. You should no longer see this error message.

This wheel has a 15 pin gameport connector. The pedals are connected to the wheel with a (ps2? s-video?) doo-hickey. There is also a brick for power. Mine got wet and rotted the inside of the round part of the plug.

Steering Wheel


It seems that you have a huge problem. This wheel only connects to a 15 pin game port, newer computers do not have the game port. You have to buy a 15 pin to USB converter, about $30.

And with no pedals?

Hi there 78 Racer, Press SET button the LED light will start to blink and beep once. Press the square button on the right hand side of the wheel. This will set it to Digital and pressing the circle will change it back to Analogu. The LED will stop blinking and a double beep sound indicates it's been set - that's it
