Title basically says it all. The biggest problem I'm having is controlling the yaw, as in I can't with the racing wheel (the official Microsoft one from a few years back). I also can't control the height from which the photo is taken, which could be useful as well.

What I really want to be able to do is use a regular controller for photo mode, and then switch back to my racing wheel for all the driving. The gear shift paddles (LB and RB) don't do anything, and I didn't think to try the peddles. How is this possible, if it even is possible?

Have you tried to just disconnect your racing wheel, connecting a standard controller in its place temporarily to take the picture, then swapping them back out? – Zero Stack Jan 2 '13 at 18:42
Yes, I believe that was one of the first things I tried. The controller connected as second player, and Forza wouldn't accept input from it. – MBraedley Jan 2 '13 at 18:45
What I meant is to hit start, disconnect your racing wheel - so your xbox will prompt you to reconnect a controller (as you are still logged in) and now connect your standard controller. That way the controller should connect back as player 1. – Zero Stack Jan 2 '13 at 18:54
Yes, I think that's what I tried. IIRC, the controller still came up as second player even though the racing wheel was disconnected. I'll have to try it again when I get back to my place. – MBraedley Jan 2 '13 at 19:04
