Finally here
« on: 07:58 AM - 08/24/11 »
Yeah after little over a month for me to get the xim3 to Denmark
its finally here
i had some problems at the start with paypal, and then i had to order from the start again, just with my card this time
i tho want to say the support from xim3 side, been amazing, quick support, quick handle to send it my way.
so all good there.

now its here, it looks good., even tho
when i plug my mx 518 and my logitech media keyboard 600 to it,. it needs more power. and sadly i dont have a 5v adapter around me atm.
so have to wait. but its here. and cant wait.

had no problem booting it up to my pc and update the firmware.

going to be awesome to try it out

//Happy Dane

on some xbox versions you MUST plug the xim3 usb into the rear usbs
the front ones dont have enough power!

try that first before you buy an power adapter

Yes avoid external power. There is no reason why you'd need it.

Plug your peripherals one at a time and tell us when you get the power fault. Also, do you have anything else plugged into the Xbox USB ports?

Does your media keyboard have a lot of lights on it?

so i tested a few things out

1:
i did as u guys told me, i plug it in , at the back of my xbox.. runs fine up.
then i plug my mouse to it. ( as the guide pic showed me ) nothing happen. no light and no icon that my mouse is there.  then my keyboard in the middle and still nothing. then the controller. nothing.
then i pulled out the usb and in again,. starts up. everything blinks ( except my xbox controller )
i can see on the display that mouse and keyboard in a split sec, gets their icon ,and then disappear  again.

no lights what so ever. in anything.

2:
i tried to take my controller and plug it in. but no lights gets on it.
funny thing is, that when i wanted to try it for the first time, to let my xbox find it. it got power
but not any more. plus i used it when i wanted to update the firmware. no problem there
 u think the controller is broken ?


so no no lighting icon came up. but yea now just the problem the xim3 wont catch anything and my xbox360 wont start.

when you look on the back of your xim3, there are 3 usb ports

the one closest to the DC adapter plug belongs to the controller
the middle usb port is for the keyboard
and the left usb port is for the mouse

this does matter when the xim3 doesnt recognize your devices, those above are the prefered usb ports

try this setup with one of the rear usb ports of your xbox

also are you running the latest firmware?

yep thats what i did :-)
i am using 20110407 or well i used the manager to update to the newest. so i think its 20110407


but yea still nothing.
quick blink and then icons off again and lights off on the mouse and keyboard and no sign of life on the xbox 360 at all

i told my dad that he should get a v5 power. to it, he did, but i was away when i came back it was plugt in,

so just a really random shoot
could it be that the power supply , been doing something, to the controler and the xim3?

You are running the latest firmware (407 isn't latest)?

Please connect everything into you PC and tell us what happens. Your XIM3 should also work with everything (your mouse, keyboard, and controller) plugged into your PC.

It sounds like a controller issue, which was common in foreign countries before the latest firmware updates that improved compatibility.

You mentioned you're running the 407 firmware, please update to the 815 firmware. Note that you may have to click the reset to factory default button instead of update firmware.

You won't need a controller to enter pc mode, hold down the red button on the left side of your xim3 while you are plugging it into your pc. Make sure your mouse, keyboard, and controller are not attached while doing this.
