Dopo aver installato F1 2000
sul mio computer speravo di potermi fare una bella sfida al volante del R4 FORCE WHEEL
DELLA SAITEK,ma con mia sorpresa non funzionava più la vibrazione,ho provato a cercare dei driver aggiornati ,ho trovato qualcosa nel sito Microsoft,ma niente da fare
Ci sarà qualcosa da fare o dovrò installare tutto da capo?Anche ad altri giochi di guida ora non funziona più la vibrazione.Grazie.


Ho avuto il tuo stesso problema ed ho trovato la soluzione nella FAQ sul sito della Saitek. In bocca al lupo con l’inglese, eh, eh! :stuck_out_tongue:

After installing the CDROM drivers reboot your PC.

If you cannot get the Force effects working, check that the FFB LED on the switch is on, and not flashing.

If not on, press the FFB button. If the LED is still not on, check that the power adapter is connected to the mains supply socket, that the socket is switched on (if applicable), and that the power adapter lead is plugged into the socket at the rear of the steering console.

If the LED is flashing, it means the wheel is not connected to the game port properly, check the game port connection at the rear of your PC.

If the Game Controllers window reports the controller status is “OK”, but the Force effects are not working in the Force test window, it probably means that the MIDI port on your PC has not been configured properly. Some soundcards may not install the MIDI drivers automatically during Plug and Play. To check this, select Control Panel/ Multimedia/ Midi in Windows. You should see a MIDI device listed; such as MPU-401 etc.

If no identifiable MIDI device is listed, install the MIDI driver for your MIDI port by following the instructions supplied with your soundcard (or motherboard card in the case of a motherboard with built-in game and soundport).

Next, test your MIDI set up by selecting Programs/ Accessories/ Entertainment/ Mediaplayer/ in Windows. Now load the sample MIDI file provided on this CD-ROM, by selecting File/ Open, then navigate to your CD-ROM drive and point to the file “test.mid” in the root directory of this CD-ROM – provide link to test.mid (source WD01) . Finally click on the play button and check that the MIDI sound is audible.

If not, and you are using Windows 98, follow the guidance in Windows/ Help/ Troubleshooting / Sounds, and select “I don’t hear drum sounds” (this section covers MIDI problems). If this fails, the MPU-401 on the sound card may not be enabled electrically. Some sound cards have a jumper on board to enable/disable the MPU-401 MIDI. Otherwise, check the sound card documentation (or access sound card manufacturer’s technical support on their website) and ensure that the MPU-401 is enabled.

If the control panel Force tests are now operational, run one of the games from the supplied CD-ROM which support Force Feedback i.e. Johnny Herbert’s GP 1998, Ultim@ate Race Pro, or TOCA Touring Car Championship).

If Force feedback works OK in these games, but not in you own game, ensure that the Force Feedback button is checked and the Use Throttle button is UN-checked in your game setup.

Some games with Force Feedback support have a “Null Zone” setting. We have found that this has to be set to maximum to feel some forces.

Additional MIDI set up

Some sound cards (including some PnP cards) do not have the correct MIDI port address. You may check from Windows/ Control Panel/ System/ Device Manager and make sure the sound card Resource Settings have 3 input-output ranges (typically 220-22F, 388-38B and 330-331). If not, try manually setting the resource settings to achieve this configuration.
