    I'm using windows 98se. The problem I have is that I plug the controller into the adapter, and the adapter into the USB slot, and the PC brings up the 'add new hardware' screen. It installs the driver, adds a little volume icon to my system tray and then... nothing.

    As advised in the (moderately-to-severely) useless readme file, I go into Control Panel & Gaming Options, and try to add a new 'monster gamepad' (the driver name I am advised to use). I am told that 'your gameport or gameport drivers are not properly configured. Please consult the device manager.'

    Device manager has no problems listed, and the two new icons are in the 'sound, video and game controllers'; a 'monster gamepad' and an 'HID compliant game controller.' As previously mentioned, they are both fine. I've even been into the Gaming Options tab marked 'controller IDs' but it doesn't show any controllers in the top list, and the only gameport I can select at the bottom is the 'Standard Gameport'.



    I haven't owned any gamepads until now, but a while ago I did install a Logitech Wingman Extreme via USB which worked OK. It's just confusing, because the Control Panel/Gaming Options screen is telling me something's wrong with the game controller, but the device manager says everything is fine. AAARRRGGGHHH!!!

    Managed to fix the problem somehow - unplugged everything and plugged it all back in. I have 2 rows of USB ports on the back, so I plugged the adaptor into a different row from the modem (which was taking up a lot of power) and it's all working now.

    I'm using Windows XP SP1. Looking in Device Manager, the only devices in there that even closely resemble this controller adapter is:

    "USB Composite Device"
    "HID-Compliant consumer control device"
    2x "USB Human Interface Device"

    I've tried unplugging and replugging the device and I don't see anything in the "Game Controllers" part of Control Panel. Can someone help me?

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!You haven't been able to get it working with the original grey controller? Now, don't get me wrong, but I have 3 of these things, and gave the 4th to a friend. I have been able to get all my Grey controllers working fine, but maybe that's because I keep them in near-mint condition?? That's strange you haven't been able to get a grey one working!? Maybe they're selling newer models in the past couple of years or something?
    My adaptoids work great, too!

    And you did install the driver manually? You really shouldn't have to with XP, but if Windows refuses to set it up automatically...

    compleatly uninstalled it. When i went to re-install i pick the drive that was on the disk it came with. it says "the specifyed location does not contain information about your hardware."

    Heres the instructions

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Installation Manual for PSX/N64 to USB Cable

    Step

    1. Plug-in the Cable into the USB port of your computer and startup the computer. Since it is a plug & play device, Win95/98 should find a new hardware.
    2. Choose Select the device driver by yourself and click OK
    3. Select A:\ pc2004-drv from the box and click Next. (Assuming A: is your floppy disk drive)
    4. Monster.inf should appear in the list, please select it and click OK.
    5. Select Monster Gamepad from the list and click Next.
    6. Computer will access the disk and may ask you to insert the win95/98 CD-ROM.
    7. Click Next and wait for the computer to finish the job.
    8. Go into the Control Panel and select the Joystick icon.
    9. Select and add Monster Game Pad into the list.

    End

    I did all that but it juss says "the specifyed location does not contain information about your hardware"

    One other idea...

    Try the same procedure, but direct the driver installation applet to your WinXP CD (if it doesn't search there anyway) instead of the floppy. I've never had to use the drivers supplied with the adapter, so for all I know they're designed for Win9x.

    If that doesn't work...I'm stumped.
