    Is there any way to get a PC wheel, with USB connection, to work on an xbox?

    Thanks

    no...the games need to have the right drivers to acknowledge a controller. No one can understand why MS haven't done this yet..I'm hoping they will unveil something in time for Forza Motorsport :)

    Thanks. When you say MS, are you referring to them as producers of the xbox or producers of FF wheels? I have a logitech FF wheel, and can't fault it - not sure if logitech would have to write something to make the xbox accept it, or if MS would do something that covered all PC wheels.

    Can't help feeling if nothings been done yet, it won't get done.

    I assume MS would have to allow/authorise the implementation of drivers to the platform and I speak to devcos on a regular basis and it has never been mentioned :(
    The games would have to have the support written into the games (and drivers) for a FF wheel to be recognised and used. It's really sad it hasn't been done, the Xbox controller ports are USB based so the machine is more than capable of acceoting USB generic FF wheels (including the fantastic Logitech)
