A Speed Wheel is a type of game controller which plugs into the Universal Serial Bus interface port of the host machine to allow the computer user to use it in a gaming environment. These types of game controllers function almost in the same manner that mouse pointing devices, keyboards, or any other human interface device would in any computer system. This means that the Speed Wheel Force Feedback (USB) provides the computer user with a way of interacting with his gaming environment and manipulating certain elements within that environment. Gaming controllers much like any type of input device can be configured by the computer user with the installation of the appropriate device driver. The device driver provides the user interface that will allow the computer user to dictate the properties of the supported hardware and affect its operation at runtime. The control panel can be invoked either from the operating system or within the gaming environment of the supported software application.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Device drivers are known for making the supported hardware component operational and functional. In the case of the Speed Wheel Force Feedback (USB) it is used to activate the Force Feedback feature which is built into the hardware component by its manufacturer. By invoking this feature set via the device driver the computer user gains additional enjoyment by being able to for example feel the texture of the road when playing a driving or racing computer game. The Force Feedback technology makes it possible for the computer user to gain a more realistic appeal from the computer game. These bumps, jerks, and vibrations are made possible by electronic impulses sent to a motor installed in the hardware component. The motor reacts to the amount of electronic impulse sent to it based on the commands generated by the supported computer game. The device driver makes sure that the supported hardware component will be able to correctly interpret the commands sent by the computer game. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Speed Wheel Force Feedback (USB) errors before installing any driver updates.
