You need a laptop or desktop computer.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page. You'll see "download driver 2014". Download that first. Now your computer will see your wheel. Next, on the same screen, look for option to download PDF file on instructions for doing firmware update. Then look for in the same screen, the latest firmware update for TX & click on it & download it. Follow instructions from PDF file you already downloaded. Now you're all set.

same thing with madcatz. go to their site support section and it has links to their windows firmware updater utility which comes with their latest firmware. i dunno what the latest is and how well it works as i no longer have madcatz. some people here reported their fresh bought wheels work very well with pCars out of the box so they might have the latest firmware installed at the factory.

The update for the madcatz works very simple. Download the software from their website, there's a 32 and 64 version. Install it and run it. You wil get in a wizzard what to do. Plug the usb cable from the xbox into the pc/laptop while holding two buttons on your pad. Follow the screens and your done.
