Forza Horizon 3 supports a limited number of racing wheels, including the Logitech G27 wheel. Gamers report that this device is affected by many issues, and sometimes it stops working altogether.

Logitech G27 issues on FH3

More specifically, Forza Horizon 3 often doesn’t recognize Logitech G27. Here’s how one gamer describes the problem:

So when opening the game, the steering wheel is working, however it isnt finding my exact device. It knows its a racing wheel but thats as far as it goes. I tried to use the g27 layout, but i get an error telling me “invalid wheel layout” (This wheel profile is incompatible with your currently connected wheel) which means that my wheel isnt being recognised as what it really is.

The player who reported this issue also contacted Xbox Tech Support, but Microsoft’s support engineers couldn’t solve this problem. It appears that this issue is caused by a fault in the game. Players have tried restarting their computers, changing the USB ports for the wheel, as well as uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers – all to no avail.

They can use the Logiteh G27 racing wheel on other racing games that aren’t compatible with Windows 10 or the Xbox One console.

Fix: FH3 doesn’t recognize Logitech G27

1. Install the latest Logitech G27 drivers
2. Install both the 32- and 64-bit versions. The 32-bit version also installs  a program called Logitech profiler. Once this profiler is installed, your racing wheel should work perfectly.
3. In case this does’t work, try downloading the G25 drivers instead.
