    Fanatec CSR plus petals in PC mode not connecting to drive hub

    I have a a Fanatec CSR Plus pedals. I follow the step-by-step process to connect to the drive hub and I’m not getting the figure 8 LED changing to say CSR.
    The wheel is in PC mode, and I can get a Xbox one controller to work. But my CSR wheel is not being detected by the drive hub. I am using this on an Xbox one. The CSR wheel has updated firmware and drivers.

    Can you check if it work on your PC and if not check the USB cable. You can also use port 3 on the DriveHub if you like.

    I have the Drive Hub CM00076 and I think it is DEAD ON ARRIVAL, Because when I try to update the firmware, despite being plugged into my PC and the figure 8 LED on, the firmware says CANNOT FIND DEVICE.
    (Does NOT work on Mac either)

    I’ve spent over 3 hours trying to get it to work with my Fanatec Forza Motorsport CSR wheel plus pedals on an Xbox One. I know it should work and IS listed to work with this unit, but it will not show up,
    and stop the figure 8 led pattern.
    To be clear:
    I get the figure 8 patter to show it’s in race mode, but the CSR wheel, will not connect to it.
    *An xbox ONE controller will work fine through it.
    I’ve rebooted the Xbox one with a 10 second power button hold
    My micro USB cables are good - the Xbox Controller does work, but not the wheel. I've tried multiple USB Cables.
    The xbox one controller is on the latest firmware
    I make sure the xbox one controller is off when I connect it.
    My Fanatec CSR wheel IS in PC MODE
    My Fanatec CSR wheel HAS A good usb cable, and works on my PC fine
    I FOLLOW the steps here https://collectiveminds.ca/shop/allconsoles/drivehub/ to connect it.
    But the wheel never shows up, just an eternal figure 8 pattern on my drive hub.

    hi,
    to update you must hold button 1 as you connect to the PC, the eyes on the gearhead will flash, nothing on the display..

    did you try the wheel in port 3, does the led beside the port come on when you plug it in ?

    Ok, some bad news and good news.
    The bad news is that I still can't update my firmware. On the mac, the software won't even start (it flashes for like a micro second then disappears)
    and on PC when it does come up, it says it cannot find the device.
    In both cases I plugged it in while pressing button 1 and getting flashing green eyes.

    The good news, is that I finally got it working with my Fanatec Forza Motorsport CSR wheel plus pedals on an Xbox One.
    The instructions given by collective minds do not work, primarily I think, because you *cannot put your Fanatec CSR wheel in PC mode before you plug it into the hub* - In the instructions, they say to make sure it's in PC mode before you start, but to put it in pc mode you *have to have the USB plugged in to something (like a powered USB port).*
    Here's the process I now use to get it going, as clumsy as it is:

    1) Plug in the Mini USB, xbox controller (off), wheel (off), shifter, into the hub
    2) Plug the HUB into the Xbox (which is OFF)
    3) TURN ON FANATEC CSR Wheel, and enter PC mode by holding the back button
    4) Turn on xbox and boot it up
    5) Unplug the hub from the xbox and replug back into the Xbox

    Hope this helps someone out there!
