DD1 Cuts out problem, need help.
I'm having the problem which I guess is unfortunately all too common. Around turns, the FFB dies, the wheel gets real loose, and the paddles don't work, then it comes back slowly. It is happening more and more. I've read tons on Fanatec forums this is happening a lot and there doesn't seem to be a common fix or what the actual problem is. This is happening with the DD1 and the Mclaren V2 wheel. There is a lot of chat about the problem being with the simplified QR on the V2 and that I need to get the metal QR. I ordered one, but I'm seeing this same problem happening to people who have the actual podium wheels as well. I've seen possible fixes as using a set screw (I don't have the metal QR yet so I can't try) WD-40 on pins, changing power settings in device manager for the USB on MOBO (tried that, didn't work) firmware downgrades etc.
I opened a ticket with Fanatec, but haven't heard back, from what i've read, they don't have a solution. I have usb 3.0 gen 1 and 2 and it's plugged into gen 2, should I try gen 1? Or is that going to do nothing. I took the torque key out and it seems to be happening more, but that could be coincidence.
I have turned the FFB settings down and it still happens. I don't know how to proceed and it looks like this is an issue that just kind of drags on with no answer and is really bothersome when you spend all the money to go DD and add on the wheels and you wind up not being able to use your high end rig.
