Need help with Warthog Joystick staying in [BOOT] mode


I bought a thrustmaster HOTAS (throttle and joystick). My problem is: The joystick does not work.
The drivers get installed but the joystick does not show up in the game controller dialog and in the firmware
upgrade prog the joystick stays in [BOOT] mode forever and the FW isn`t upgradeable.

Does anyone know a fix for this? Any advice welcome. Thanks.

Best regards,

Was surprisingly a problem with drivers or USB port. Reinstall of drivers and “wake-up” fixed it. Thanks anyway. :smiley:

You might consider a power usb hub… this solves a similar problem with saitek sticks.
