    CSW2 USB disconnects?

    While in a race, the CSW V2 disconnects completely. Had to shut down, restart and repair using Fanatec repair. I've never had this happen in any game. Either PC2 or Win 10 Creators update, I'm thinking the later.

    Yes, the W10 Update can screw up many Things... Try delete and Re-Install your Fanatec Drivers

    With previous Creators updates of Win10, a repair/re-install of the Fanatec driver was required as well.

    I also had to remove and reinstall the Fanatec Drivers after the win10 update.

    I also found, a few years ago, and I'm not sure if this is still a thing, nor is it pCars specific. But if I connect my Fanatec gear to usb 3 ports, I lose connection sporadically. They only seem to work reliably when connected via USB 2 ports.

    That's also something known, at least back then. No idea whether it is or was a specific USB3 quirk, or something related to Fanatec gear.

    Yes, same here. Everytime MS releases a larger update Fanatec software has to be removed/reinstalled. Goes with some other stuff aswell, MSI Gaming App etc.
    My guess is that Win10 overwrites some files or values that has to be overwritten again after...
