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. Wed all upgraded to Windows XP. To our disbelief, Saitek werent 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 wasnt

To find the newest driver, you may need to visit the Saitek website. Most major device manufacturers update their drivers regularly.

Step 2 - Install Your Driver

Once you have downloaded your new driver, you'll need to install it. In Windows, use a built-in utility called Device Manager, which allows you to see all of the devices recognized by your system, and the drivers associated with them.

How to Open Device Manager

  • In Windows 10 & Windows 8.1, right-click the Start menu and select Device Manager

  • In Windows 8, swipe up from the bottom, or right-click anywhere on the desktop and choose "All Apps" -> swipe or scroll right and choose "Control Panel" (under Windows System section) -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager

  • In Windows 7, click Start -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager

  • In Windows Vista, click Start -> Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> Device Manager

  • In Windows XP, click Start -> Control Panel -> Performance and Maintenance -> System -> Hardware tab -> Device Manager button

How to Install a driver from Device Manager

  1. Locate the device and model that is having the issue and double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  2. Select the Driver tab.

  3. Click the Update Driver button and follow the instructions.

In most cases, you will need to reboot your computer in order for the driver update to take effect.

Tech Tip: Driver downloads and updates come in a variety of file formats with different file extensions. For example, you may have downloaded an EXE, INF, ZIP, or SYS file. Each file type has a slighty different installation procedure to follow.
