TrackIR freezes (FSX)

Post by skysurfer77 » Wed Oct 03, 2012 5:51 pm

Hi
I've got TrackIR 4 pro with the hat clip & TrackIR Version 5.1.3 software.
I've been using it for some years now...suddenly it has started to do random freezes in FSX(works fine with FC2 & DCS BS)if I re-plug the camera it's working again but freezes after a couple of minutes again, when it's freezed the pause button works & when I shut down FSX the camera works?
I haven't changed anything in FSX or on my rig.
I have reinstalled the software 2 times(admin), tried all USB ports, different profiles, don't have recording in FSUIPC, running the software as admin, tried to run in compatibility mode for W7...but I still got the freezes.
Any help appreciated:)))

My system: ASUS G73JW, Win 7 Home Premium 64bit, Nvida GeForce 285.62 WHQL driver.

Do you have a firewall by chance? Even windows firewall can sometimes break the connection between FSX and TIR. I'd check those as a source of potential interference.

Additionally, the nVidia driver could likely be updated, too. I think they're on over 300, but that is likely not the source of the issue.

Thanx for the reply:)
Yes TIR is allowed in my W7 firewall & in my AVG antivirus.
My nVidia driver, I have had it for a year or so & TIR worked very well before...don't think it's the issue either.

You may want to disconnect your computer from the internet briefly, drop the firewalls, and try a flight. If the problem persists it will 100% rule out firewall as a potential source of issue.

The next step would be attempting to repair Simconnect which can be a bit more difficult.

Hi again,
Bumping my old thread now since I have the same problem again, only this time it effects all of my games FSX, DCS World, FC2.
I've got random puses/freezes for about 1-2sek coming every 10sek or so....?
I've tried everything above + updating internal drivers, changing USB ports, installed latest TrackIR 5.2.2, but nothing helps?
Please help, thanx.

My system: ASUS G73JW, Win 7 Home Premium 64bit, Nvida GeForce 306.97 driver.

Is the freezing just in the head tracking or is everything having the stutter?

Sorry for the late answer.
I found out that this problem isn't TR related, it's my HD that is the cause.
