my second adapter came in today after a long week of patiently waiting, the link was provided by odin here http://www.amazon.com/GTMax-Controller-Converter-Adapter-Cable/dp/B00452D50G/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1329851146&sr=8-13

i did not receive the adapter in the picture, i received yet another pos from china.....this is getting very discouraging. Please someone give me a link to a legit working adapter my xim3 is collecting dust.

Bob,

I looked this up in my order history, so it is the exact one I purchased.

Twice the price as the one you linked, but its working very well for me.

Your adapter is not the problem. They are all POS  from China and they all work the same. You are using a wired controller and not the rechargeable ones right? Something tells me there is a hitch in your setup. I think everything may be in working condition. You used preferred ports correct? you are using the GTMAX correctly right? you are using a mini usb to connect gtmax? If you could get a pic of how everything is connected we could at least cancel an error out.

I think i found the problem. when i was messing with the set up i unplugged my mouse and kb and left the controller plugged in. Then i realized that the xbox controller light finally came on and it registered on the xim, then i plugged the mouse and kb back in and then it stopped working. SO obviously the adapter works. my guess is the xim isnt getting enough power to power all 3 things. Ima pick up a 5v charger from radio shack after work and see if that fixes it.

do you see lightning bolts?

make sure to get the right charger as the wrong one will fry your xim. What peripherals do you use?

i use a hp keyboard and a corsair m60 vengeance mouse. the xim reads those fine. i didnt see lighting bolts tho i didnt pay much attention either. The charger port on the xim looks like a 5volt, is it?
Do you have a messenger i can contact you on we can troubleshoot this thing together sometime

power adapter wont help as long as there are no bolts on the screen

the mouse does work, so id try a different keyboard
from time to time some forum users reported that certain keyboards interfere with mice and make the whole setup unplayable
next time you come from work take the keyboard with you and test it at home with the xim3
or ask the neighbour, pretty much any keyboard will do it



btw the adapter has to work, its the correct one

Got ya, matter fact i got a logitech brand new in the box at home. I know the adapter works for sure now that i seen it working, i even messed with the xim3 config for a good 3 mins before i plugged something up for it not to work anymore and as u said it may well be the keyboard. fingers crossed i get off in an hour

he told me with a psp charger it worked
somehow the whole system took too much power and the xim3 didnt notice
probably because of the gtmax in line


but everythings fine now :)

brew your situation is an exception, usually you dont need a charger with the gtmax

if you want you can still play around and see what device is the powersoaking monster ;)
