I had this thing lying around from when I had an XB1 back in the day and I want to start playing some racing games, so I want to figure out how to use this wheel on PC and if I need to simply install some drivers, etc. 

Thanks in advance

For anyone who finds this with the same problem. The Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Spider only works with the Xbox One and Microsoft Store games. Unfortunately, there appears to be no custom drivers to allow it to function outside of these environments.

So if you've bought this for PC, I hope you like Forza games.

I'm so sorry I didn't respond. It like kinda works but kinda doesn't? It recognizes it as a steering wheel but it doesn't steer. It also doesn't recognize the peddles. I've kinda given up. My apologies

oh so there is no way I could use this thing on my pc. I was really hoping that there would be some homemade drivers or something to force this thing to work. I would try to make them myself but have a very limited code experience and it would be years till I would be able to make something so complex... I guess ill just keep looking.

Hello there, since I recently bought this wheel for a price I just could not say no to I am kinda dissapointed that even with the driver it doesn´t seem to work as it should. :/

 

Guess I will just have to sell/ gift it on.

Button a, b, x, y, dpad, pause, start, and right pedal are correctly recognized while left ledal isnt reconglised at all and the wheel seems to function as the left trigger in right direction but as nothing in left.

Help?

I'm working on custom drivers right now, but in my testing this driver set almost works, the abxy and Xbox button don't work though. worth a shot if you're desperate.
