View Full Version : HELP NEEDED - USB Converter For Psx/N64

2nd August 2009, 01:22 AM
Hey all!

I imagine that you get alot of these type of forum posts, but seriously, i've looked everywhere for the past few days and can't find a solution ANYWHERE :confused:

Right, i bought this from eBay; http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41bHJ992tKL._SL500_AA280_.jpg
And basically bought it second hand, only came stand alone, no instructions or CD. But i was told that it was 'plug and play' for XP and Vista's.

But when i connect it to my xp computer, the bubble pops up 'Found New Hardware' and followed by 'Your device is installed and ready to go' and then after that goes, another pops up saying 'USB Device not recognised'

And basically, the computer hasn't installed a driver and doesn't know that its a game controller!

Ive downloaded a rar file from some websites which include the Monster.inf, but when i right click and install, an alert pops up 'Failed to install' or when i try to update driver under the 'USB Device not recognised' bar, it says Monster.inf has no information about the device!

Anyone got any solutions/help?

Much appreciated!

Thanks, Toby :D

Specs of computer (If needed)

Yeh, i've tried it on a Vista laptop and another XP desktop!
Same issue :(

Then I say your device is faulty, because I have the same device and have no issues.

Thanks for your help.

I have got another one which works fine, but the controller seems slow for the player to turn around etc :\

Any thoughts? :)

From Options/Configure Controller Plugin... settings like "Deadzone" control device sensitivity.
For advanced changes to sensitivity though if this isn't enough you might want a new plug-in for controller.

A new plug in? Sorry lol, where you think i could get one? :)

You can also change controller ones through Options/Settings... if they are already installed.
Look for N-Rage's.

Techstufftrading is an eBay store in Australia. I bought an adapter they were so good I ordered more, Here's a link to what I'm talking about.

Well, the one i first talked about didn't! But that was because it was faulty..

BUT i now have a new one which does work with project 64 :)

Thanks all

Edit again: 3 buttons are pressed all the time when I try to calibrate/edit buttons in PJ64. I've tried two different N64 controllers with the adapter, so what, faulty adapter? It seems the stick is also moving without touch :(
