Hi

Thanks in advance.

I take it you bought some kind of usb adapter for ps2 controller to connect to pc.

Have you tried connecting the controller to other usb ports? unplugging all other usb devices? other computers?
A typical problem with laptop is that the usb ports don't have enough power and have problems connecting to certain devices. If you have 2 sets of usb port, the set in the back is usually the one with the most power. Generally laptop usb ports have around 500mA, which is fine for most usb devices. But in certain models, especially one with smaller lcd screen, they have <500mA. The first thing you should determine is what causes the problem, controller or laptop.

I bought a similar usb adapter for xbox controller from ebay for <£5, works great on my laptop and it's even being recognized as a xbox 360 controller in some games, i.e. Halo 2 and Gears of War. :thumbsup:

Mine is the copy similar to ps2 controller but not exactly. That why it does confuse me of quality. have tried all the usb ports giving same result. the buttons are fine at first 2 minutes but when entering the game they start not to respond. I used to have a ps2 controller with adaper to usb port before but that was last year and with windows xp. I lost it now though. anyway looking to buy a direct usb connection and found this one

anyone knows something better?

it's probably has something to do with the controller itself then.

The Logitech Rumble Pad 2 is a good controller. I was going to get that but it was out of stock from play.com and I couldn't find a better price, so I opted for the xbox usb adapter option since I had a few old xbox controllers around the house. Another one I considered was in fact the xbox 360 controller at about the same price range.

From the reviews I have seen, they are both equally as good, it's really depend if you prefer the ps2 controller (i.e. Logitech Rumble pad 2), or xbox 360 controller. :whistling:
