The only way to get a Saitek r4 on Windows XP, istructions in the rar file

My problem however, like Soooooo many others was that in the 5 years of waiting for a “good” race sim. We’d all upgraded to Windows XP. To our disbelief, Saitek weren’t going to offer support for the new operating system.

Fortunately however I stumbled across a post in the Saitek forum regarding the R4. XYR a person on the forum posted a mod to change the hardware ID for the R4 into a Microsoft Force Feedback Wheel and XP could recognize it.

Figuring I had nothing to loose. I did the mod and it worked. WOOHOO!

For a while, this was enough. I could use the wheel again with full force feedback support. I was happy. Life was good.

But something wasn’t

"This file is a copy of my personal website showing the hardware modification needed to run the Saitek R4 Force Feedback wheel to work under WinXP.

Thank you to the person who copied it and submitted it to Drivers Guide to help others.

The original website can be found here. Hope it helps many more to come.
