    Cannot connect Wheel Base to PC

    I run the the Forza Motorsport Wheel, Clubsport Wheel Base V2.5 and connect to my Xbox and i want to update the firmware to the latest version
    On my PC i have updated the firmware but when i connect the wheelbase to my PC it seems my PC does not recognize or will not accept the USB connection. When i push the USB connector from the wheelbase into the PC my PC does not give the typical sound when i successfully connect any other USB devise. Due to this i cannot update the firmware.
    Has anyone else experienced this and how do i fix the problem?
    Thanks,
    Charlie

    My wheelbase does the same thing sometimes. I have to manually go into my device manager and uninstall the USB driver (with wheel base plugged into the PC, it will give you a yellow warning next to it) Uninstall driver, unplug the base. When you plug it back in, it will reinstall the driver and detect it.

    So you updated the firmware on PC but now you cannot connect the base anymore to update the firmware?
    I would recommend first to connect wheel base to the PC, and then power on the wheel, not the other way around.

    Thanks for the replies.
    Yes, the power to the wheel base is on and all the necessary drives are on the PC.

    I have tried every combination of powering different devises are different times. It is really annoying!

    Did you try to uninstall the usb driver and let it auto detect it again?
