problems with usb ch yoke.

Recommended Posts

I am having problems with my fathers usb flight yoke !He is runnimg windows XP with a sis 34 MB video card, The only problem is, that after he turns off the computerIt loses the calibration, And have to reinstall the disk to Recalibrate the yoke, As my computer is in the shop getting memory upgrade And a new Power Supply. He ( my Father ) Has just replaced the battery on the mother boardrecently, After installing the disk to callibrate All is fine, Just the problem of turning off and then back on again and trying to use the sim after some time later:-zhelp

Jeff:In my case the CH Yoke USB was pretty much plug-and-play. Take a look at this simple review: http://www.maximum3d.com/reviews/chyoke2.htmAre you using CH Control Manager?

Jeff:Before starting Fly! II you need to start CH Control Manager and load your Map. There's a little piece of software that you can download called CHStart that will do this for you automatically. You just place it in your Startup folder.Unfortunately the CH Products site has been down since yesterday. It's freeware so if you send me a private message using Avsim's e-mail system I can attach it to a message, it's only 186Kb.Take care,Alejandro AmigorenaCheshire, CTFly!

Still a problem with the flight sim yoke, Wont accept calibrations even with the control manager, And ch start. Tried to map still nothing. I wonder if something is wrong with the yoke itself, But cant put it on my system . Because mines in the shop :(:-(

Jeff:Sorry to hear it's still not working.Did you follow EXACTLY the installation procedures? From what I can recall they are very picky about what you've got to do. I may have them somewhere if you need them.Alejandro AmigorenaCheshire, CTFly!

Jeff:Those are the ones I meant.So you did remove the older USB drivers, went through the "Found New Hardware" pop ups, etc, etc.Don't know what else you can try. Maybe someone else can jump in.Good luck!Alejandro AmigorenaCheshire, CTFly!
