USB joystick reconnects when plane lands

Recommended Posts

A Bizzare problem: Immediately upon the wheels touching the ground, my USB joystick reconnects (I hear the familliar USB beeping sound like the joystick was physically unplugged and plugged in again. I could live with this, but all of the joystick settings go back to default when this happens, requiring a restart of FSX to get the settings right again.I have FSX+accel on windows7 Home PremiumI use an XB360 wired joystick plugged into a USB Hub. I have a wireless keyboard+mouse (not plugged into the sam hyb). PC is a coreI5+Geforec GT 240Thanks for any help,Steve

hi SteveI had problems with cdt,s when I tried to use my 'Pro pedels' for along time, did without them until last week I tried again, same problem, then I switch from my wireless mouse back to a ps2 mouse and it appears to have solved it, so try with a ps2 mouse.I think alot of ctd's are caused by usb devices.

Make sure you have all the Win7 updates - there were issues with some USB devices disconnecting if they weren't being used constantly that are supposed to be fixed.DJ

It's not a matter of a device timing out I don't think. The reconnect happens the instant that the wheels touch the ground when landing the plane -and is repeatable. I'll try installing the latest windows update. Also 'll give a wired keyboard and mouse a shot (though it would be unfortunate if this turned out to the the problem as this is a living room PC hooked up to a TV)Thanks,Steve

Is the USB hub you refered to powered or unpowered? Have you tried moving the keyboard dongle and joystick to other USB outlets preferably connected directly to your Mobo?
