For instructions on how to disable device driver signatures, please visit this tutorial. Having a device spit out "NON GENUINE DEVICE FOUND!" won't necessarily break a device, but it is an undocumented feature that could cause some devices to behave oddly. http://directxfaq.com/ftdi-driver/ftdi-drivers-mac-os-x.php

Doesn't mean you won't get OTHER fake chips. i.e: Look at a chronograph for the FT2232H with their sample application for the D2XX driver.

Unfortunately, the best answer is to not play the game.

It operates exactly the same as a real Ford and uses the same firmware that official Ford cars do.
