I've just bought the Logitech Speed Force Wireless, but I can't seem to make it communicate with our Nintendo Wii console what so ever?
We do fire up the Wii console, we then power up the wheel itself and insert the USB-adapter into the Wii console, but when trying to enable it nothing happens?
It wont pop-up in the Remote Settings or anything? Isn't it supposed to work without actually being inside of a game?
Cause we aren't able to get it synced and working within the Wii consoles menus!
There is also some real lack of information around what kind of games it does support, and how its actually supposed to work?
I read in a review that someone tested it with Mario Kart, and the reseller I bought it from had Mario Kart under the "compatible and recommended games for this product"?
What is the point with a "Wireless" wheel not working with the most popular racing games for the Wii console? Not even able to sync with our Wii console? I don't really get it? Guess I'll just return it, if there aren't any magic workarounds?

I have the same problem with mine, its a nice wheel but for the price and serious lack of support i.e.. Logitech blaming the game manufacturer and the game manufacturer blaming Logitech its just a vicious circle. I recommend steering clear of this product because its quite obvious Logitech has no interest in supporting their customers that have problems with their product, their only concern is to charge $100 for a product that supports "ONE" game and wants to play the blame game when the customer has issues with the product.. Thanks for nothing Logitech!!! Enjoy the free money you got for your piece of **bleep** product!!!!!

I agree, unfortunately I wasted my money when I bought two wheels, one for each of my two small children. How can a company continue to sell a product that they know will not work?

It would not be as upsetting if they were up front and tell people which games support it. I personally ordered all three games I know of that will work with it just so it will be worth the money to have the wheel. Hopefully at least one of those games are worth the money.

The wheel does work. I have F1 2009 and it works with that game. It doesn't work in the Wii Menu screen because the Wii menu is designed for the controller to point at the screen. Since the wheel doesn't point at the screen in the same manner as the controller, it won;t do anything at that point. This is my opinion--I would think it should work with the up/down.left/right buttons, but perhaps that was an oversight by Logitech. In any event, once you enter a game with the Wii controller, you can then take over with the wheel.
I had to get into F1 2009 with the Wii controller and then use the wheel once the game launched. It works great with F1 2009--don't take my word for it--the game manual itself lists the Logitech Speed Force wheel as a compatible device.

What a waste of time and effort.
I got the Indy 500 game as a gift and saw the Logitech wheel and jumped on it.
Too bad the box did not say it only worked with certain games.
Too bad Its a great looking product that won't work on the other 99.9% of Wii games
What is so hard about intergrating a proper Wii controller into the unit so that it works on any Wii game.
I can only imagine how many of these things have been bought and returned because of poor marketing/direction etc.
By the way the instructions are great arn't they, a couple of sketches in a pamphlet.

I THINK FOR THE DAM COST OF THE SPEED FORCE WHEEL AND IF IT ONLY WORKS FOR ONE GAME IT SHOULD COME WITH THE GAME LIKE HELLO PEOPLE YOU ARE BIG COMPANY BEEN AROUND A LONG TIME USE YOU HEADS OR EVEN MAKE THE PRINT BIGGER ON THE DAM BOX SAYING IT IS ONLY GOOD FOR ONE GAME. I AM VERY UPSET WITH THIS PRODUCT AND NOT SURE I WILL EVER BUY YOUR PRODUCTS IN THE FUTHER
