Windows 7: Driving Wheel Dead Zone: Can I Make it Smaller?

Driving Wheel Dead Zone: Can I Make it Smaller?

Hi guys and gals, I have a small problem and I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix it:

I have an old "ecostar" Playstation driving wheel that used to work fine on the console.

However, I bought a "game" adapter some years ago to plug it into the PC but, for some reason, the dead zone is huge! It makes playing racing games a chore. It's hardly playable, really.

So, I tried different drivers and utilities but I still got the same problem.

Can someone say if it's possible to somehow reduce the deadzone?

Thank you and happy holidays

Please follow this:
"Control Panel> Hardware and Sound>Devices and Printers. Right click your device and click on game controller settings than click on properties."

And you might have a Calibrate button there

I know about the calibration button in the control panel. I already tried it a few times without much luck. The most that I ever get with that is having the directions slightly off.

Thanks for helping though
