How to Configure a Logitech MOMO Steering Wheelby Daniel Hatter
The Logitech MOMO game steering wheel is compatible with many Windows operating systems, including Windows 7, Vista and XP, and it supports a large number of PC games. Before you can use your Logitech MOMO steering wheel for the first time, however, you need to perform the one-time system configuration to get it set up with your computer. Once the system configuration is finished, you can connect and disconnect it from your computer at any time without having to repeat the installation part of the configuration.
Pull off the gray cover on the back of the Logitech MOMO steering wheel to reveal the clamps. Loosen them as necessary so you can push it flush against the edge of your desk or table. Tighten them back down until completely snug and replace the cover to hide the clamps.
Place the pedal platform in the desired location under your desk or table and plug its connector into the back of the wheel. Insert the power adapter cord into the back of the wheel and plug the other end into a power strip, surge protector or wall plug.
Insert the installation disc that came with your Logitech MOMO steering wheel into your computer's drive and wait for the auto-run dialog box to pop up. Alternatively, download the installation software from the Logitech MOMO downloads page and double-click it to initialize it.
Follow the prompts in the installation dialog box to install the drivers and software for your Logitech MOMO steering wheel. You will eventually be prompted to connect the USB cord from the wheel to your computer. Connect the USB connector to complete the configuration and click "Finish."
Run the desired game on your computer. To use the steering wheel with it, go to the "Settings" section of the game and click the "Controllers" option. Select your Logitech MOMO steering wheel as the controller of choice and follow the onscreen prompts to configure the game-specific controls.
