                  (in the event of a loss of firmware) (Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10) 1. If this has not already been done, install the Force Feedback drivers on your PC: “DRIVERS FORCE FEEDBACK + Firmware”: https://support.thrustmaster.com/en/product/t500rs-en/ During this procedure:
  • DO NOT CONNECT the racing wheel to your PC before being prompted to do so.
  • The racing wheel must be connected directly to the computer’s USB port. We suggest that you do not use a USB hub for this procedure.
  • DO NOT CLICK in any pop-up windows that may appear during the update.
2. Restart your computer. 3. Once the computer has restarted:
  • Disconnect the USB connector from the computer.
  • Simultaneously press and hold the L3 + R3 buttons (located on the base of your racing wheel) and reconnect (while keeping the L3 + R3 buttons pressed down) the USB connector to the computer.
  • Once the USB connector is reconnected, release the L3 + R3 buttons.
  • The following message appears in the bottom right-hand part of your screen: don’t do anything and do not click on anything during the automatic installation process.
 
  • After the installation, another message appears:
Notes:
  • During this process, the racing wheel does not self-calibrate (by way of the wheel automatically moving to the left and to the right) when connected to the computer: this is normal.
  • The racing wheel’s MODE LED is off: this is normal.
  • The racing wheel is not detected in the Control Panel: this is normal.
  • The racing wheel is detected in “Device Manager / Sound, video and game controllers” under the name “Thrustmaster TRS Racing wheel Bulk Driver”: this is normal.
4. In the “Start > All Programs > Thrustmaster > FFB Racing wheel” menu, click “Firmware Update”. 5. The “Thrustmaster – Firmware Updater” window is displayed onscreen.
  • Device” indicates the name [BOOT] TRS – Firmware version: ….
  • Firmware” indicates the firmware version that will be applied to the device.
Note: If nothing is listed under “Device” and under “Firmware”, repeat the entire procedure from the beginning, connecting the USB connector to another USB port on your computer (or carrying out the procedure on a different computer). 6. Click OK to proceed with the firmware update. IMPORTANT: DO NOT DISCONNECT your racing wheel from the computer’s USB port and DO NOT UNPLUG the racing wheel’s power supply during the firmware update process! The updater program will let you know whether the process has successfully completed. The racing wheel self-calibrates (by way of the wheel automatically moving to the left and to the right) and the MODE LED lights up again. 7. Click OK to return to the updater program’s main window, and click to exit the program. 8. Once the firmware update is complete, make sure that the racing wheel functions properly in the Control Panel (Start > All Programs > Thrustmaster > FFB Racing wheel > Control Panel).
  • Your racing wheel appears with the name “Thrustmaster T500 RS Racing Wheel”.
  • Click Properties to test the wheel.
Congratulations: you are now ready to play! Note: If the firmware update process fails, repeat the entire procedure from the beginning, connecting the USB connector to another USB port on your computer (or carrying out the procedure on a different computer).
