"Could not initialize Xbox Mode"

I have my Fanatec wheel (McLaren CSL DD Bundle) since January and after 2 month I couldn't switch into Xbox mode any more.

Also I can't update my wheel and it get stuck in update mode.

I waited for driver 456 but it didn't help and also downgrade to 451 or other driver didn't help.

(The shaft is also normal)

I looked around the forum but everything that was said to try doesn't work

Does somebody know how to fix that or if it gets fixed in driver 457.

I would appreciate any help

    Sorry link paste is broken for me, copy to your browser.

    Hope it works for you.

  • when you downgraded the driver, did you also flash the firmware?

  • Yes because fw is the reasons. Best use driver 451, because that one is staible
