Everybody assured me that this was the end all solution to playing FPS games on PS3. Did just about EVERYTHING in my power to get this piece of junk to work properly.

It couldnt power a standard Logitech G400 and a logitech K120. Just keeps dying on me. When I run it through a powered USB hub I get it to work for about 3-5 min of gameplay before the xim edge craps out on me again.

And don't tell me the PS3 controller have to be turn off when connecting it to the xim edge. DUH!

However uncomfortable the Frag fx might be it still works everytime you connect it.

Senior Bauer -

If you could kindly recount what steps you've taken from a-z with your EDGE, I'd wager you'll get a friendly response and solution in no time. 

Act the fool and you'll find more frustration than anything else.

1.  Did you download and install the latest update?
2.  What order do you have your peripherals plugged in?
3.  When in PC mode, what do you have set up / primary config / etc etc etc.
4.  Mouse dpi?
5.  Game you're trying to play?

Etc etc etc.

No the frag fx is not superior, however it works everytime i use it.

Primarily I wanted to vent my frustration over spending 150 bucks on something that doesnt work.
Secondarily get some help.

I tried both USB ports on the PS3, same problem either way.


1.  Did you download and install the latest update?
Yes.
2.  What order do you have your peripherals plugged in?
From left to right: Ps3 controller (the official one from Sony), Logitech g400 mouse, Logitech K120 keyboard.

3.  When in PC mode, what do you have set up / primary config / etc etc etc.
I have set it to startup with the config for Black ops 2.
 
4.  Mouse dpi?
The mouse doesnt have on board memory to save DPI so I click the increase DPI button everytime I start up the console. So I guess 3600.

5.  Game you're trying to play?
Call of Duty: Black ops 2 on PS3

try a different keyboard, k120 has some errors with certain combinations

other than that can you explain your problem in more detail?
what is meant by craps out
does it power again?
do you need to unplug it?
any lights on the devices running?

As Odin suggested, try a generic keyboard first and see if that was the problem.
Logitech G13 w/ modded Thubstick (or PS Nav)  //  Logitech G500 Mouse

I can confirm to you guys that I use a Logitech K120, so his KB isn't an issue.

I use the G400s & have zero probs with it, I reckon try a reset, I think it can be found at top left of the XIM Edge, where you plug the USB that powers the Edge, need a pin I think too.

I'm sorry you are having issues, but, I assure you its not expected or typical. We need to isolate the problem. It sounds like things are working fine once everything is running, but, rather its a power issue.

First, do you have any issue with only your DS3 plugged in through your Edge? Does it stay on for more than 5 minutes? Also, are you sure your DS3 is already fully charged?

I also suggest subscribing to this thread so you don't have to keep checking back.

Are you using a long USB cord for power / connection to the ps3?

Read my signature.

I use a Logitech K120 keyboard, and a Logitech G400, with the original PS3 (fatty). The ONLY issue I have had, is when I do not plug in the controller/keyboard/mouse in the proper slots of the XIM Edge. And it only does that on my PS3.

I believe, from left to right, you want: Controller, Keyboard, Mouse


So, if you're setup like that, let's get some more information from you.



Which PS3 do you have? Slim? Fatty? HDD Size?
What video connection are you using? Composite? Component? HDMI?
What audio connection are you using? RCA? HDMI? Optical Out?
Does your XIM Edge plug directly into your PS3? Or is it powered through a hub?
Do you use a USB headset?
Do you have other USB devices connected to your PS3?
Are you using the standard PS3 controller cable?
Are you using the standard PS3 controller?



The thing with the XIM Edge and gaming consoles, is there are a lot of variables that could affect performance. The XIM Edge was designed to operate with the standard controller that comes with a console. Third party controllers have been known to cause problems. It was also not intended to be used with a USB Hub (not that it won't work, but it could cause issues).

If power loss is your issue, we could be looking at a separate problem, not related to the XIM.

I use Controller, Mouse, Keyboard, I suppose it'd work Mouse, Keyboard, Controller.  :o

This sounds like a non fully charged or very old controller. Try to charge it over night as it my draw the power the Edge needs.
Crusade atm: none

You only need to use the preferred ports if Edge had trouble taking to your devices. Otherwise, you can use any order you want.

I really suspect an uncharged DS3 in this case. If the DS3 tries to charge off the Edge, it'll be too much for the PS3 and the console will shut down the port.
