Serial port error

Post by prle75 » Sun Mar 04, 2018 11:53 am

Hello.

I recently bought GIMX adapter from https://blog.gimx.fr/product/gimx-adapter/ to get my Logitech Driving force wheel to work with PS4 and I'm having problem with "Serial port not found" error. I'm using Win7 x64, downloaded Logitech software, GIMX setup files and installed all asked USB drivers. GIMX adapter, wheel and PS$ dualshock controller are all connected to powered USB hub.

Am I missing something here or?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

Could you try to connect gimx adapter directly without using USB hub?

Hello,

Maybe you connected the wrong side of the adapter to the computer?

You need to connect adpter male USB port to PC and micro usb port to PS4. Wheel is connected to PC of course.

No no no, we can't understand each other :)

Adapter has two ports. USB and microUSB.

You connect USB side of adapter to the computer and to microUSB side you connect microUSB->USB cable included in the package, you do not use microUSB side directly, only through cable. Now the USB side of this cable you connect to the PS4. That's it. I hope it's simple ;)
