I have had this wheel over a year and a half now and through many different True Drive updates it still exists that when racing I will get the FFB disconnecting followed by beeps then reconnecting. It happens mostly mid corners or when bumping with other cars. I have tried various settings in True Drive to vary the FFB but it persists.
In the last 3 to 6 months I have bought and installed USB hubs from 4 different brands. The latest I am now using is the Startech PEXUSB3S44V with 4 channels separately powered with 5Gb/s bandwidth each, It is highly recommended by many sim racing and VR people, including @phillip.vanrensburg on this forum.
It was an expensive option at $149 Australian and unfortunately has not solved this issue at all. I have now wasted quite a sum of money including also purchasing 3 different high quality USB cables and additional Ferrite chokes to minimise EMI.
I would really appreciate any other ideas as to what may be the answer, or have I got a rare SC2Pro with some faulty control board in it ? I don’t know the answer but I am all out of solutions and answers.
To make matters worse the latest True Drive software is now constantly turning off High Torque after a few minutes of inactivity, I play Assetto Corsa a lot and invariably it happens just when I am perusing tracks & cars and I forget about it until inside a race again so have to pause or exit and re-enable high torque, frustrating. Is there a setting somewhere to increase the timing of when this safety feature kicks in ? If not please add this in the next software release.
My old Accuforce Pro was not as detailed or powerful as this wheel but I am really missing it for the fact it was reliable and never had any of the above issues. I really hope the Simucube company people who read these forums do not just dismiss this as I wonder do they think this is imagined and/or something wrong with the user PC and cannot possible be their hardware ? I am not the only user experiencing this issue and now after replacing many components and reinstalling Win10 Pro several times I feel confident my PC is working correctly but the SC2Pro is not, would love to be proven wrong as I simply want to race and not worry about constant disconnects.
My specs :- Asus TUF Gaming X570 wifi plus with latest Bios and drivers, AMD 5900X Cpu, 16gb DDR4 3600 CL16 Ram, Nvidia 3090 Gpu.

OS is Win10 Pro, very minimalist software install of only sim racing required programs and sim race titles :- AMS2, Assetto Corsa, AC Competizione, RaceRoom RE, rFactor2, KartKraft and Project Cars 2. Only major race sim I do not use is iRacing.
