I'd check with mindworm and roads suggestions first.

Too long of a usb extension will cause dropouts like this. A controller with a low battery will do the same.

i know that long USB cables will cause problems but i've used a 3m+ for long periods of time without even an impact on latency, i checked. that should not be the issue but, if nothing else...
soon..

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

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

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 suspected as much but I remember Controller, Mouse, Keyboard being the suggested order in the XIM Edge Manual.

Firstly, tried with a Microsoft natural keyboard 4000 v1 and a Logitech G5 mouse. But even through the usb hub it cant power those two peripherals.


1) Does it power again?
A) No, I have to disconnect the XIM edge so it powers down and then reconnect.

2) Do you need to unplug it?
A) The keyboard, mouse and controller becomes completely unresponsive. The mouse for example has a red light where the sensor is. But after the error, this turns off. I literally have to unplug the Xime edge and reconnect. And in about 30% of the times, the mouse, keyboard and controller starts again and I resume control of my ingame character.


3) Any lights on the devices running?
A) The xim edge pulsates in the color chosen for the particular game, in this case blue.


4) First, do you have any issue with only your DS3 plugged in through your Edge?
A) No, I just played through an entire Black ops 2 match without a single glitch with just the controller connected to the edge and the edge connected through a USB hub and into the Sony Playstation 3 slim console.
 

5) Does it stay on for more than 5 minutes?
A) Yes, worked with just the controller. No issues.

6) Also, are you sure your DS3 is already fully charged?
A) According to the Sony Playstation slim menu it seems the controller is fully charged.

7) Are you using a long USB cord for power / connection to the ps3?
A) Standard one meter cable. Im sitting at a normal office desk.

8) Which PS3 do you have? Slim? Fatty?
A) Sony Playstation 3 slim - model number CECH-2004A

9)HDD Size?
A) 120 Gigabytes.
 
10) What video connection are you using? Composite? Component? HDMI?
A) HDMI

11) What audio connection are you using? RCA? HDMI? Optical Out?
A) Optical out

12) Does your XIM Edge plug directly into your PS3? Or is it powered through a hub?
A) Powered through hub, because when I plug it directly into the PS3 slim, it simply shuts down the controller, keyboard and mouse directly.

13) Do you use a USB headset?
A) No

14) Do you have other USB devices connected to your PS3?
A) No

15) Are you using the standard PS3 controller cable?
A) Yes

16) Are you using the standard PS3 controller?
A) Yes, Sony Dual Shock 3 sixaxis - Model number CECHZC2E

According to my PS3 user interface the controller is fully loaded. I will however plug it in for the night and try again in about 8-10 hours.

This is actually a problem. Unplug your edge and all devices connected to it, plug edge directly into your ps3 with only a controller attached. Does it shut down? It sounds like a power draw issue, you could always try a different mini usb cable between edge and your ps3.

Try using the Mini USB cable that came with the XIM with your controller when you connect to the XIM. That fixed my PS3 issue. For some reason my 3 mini usb cables weren't sending data signal.

Hub or keyboard is my guess.

I'm concerned about the hub. You should plug your XIM directly into your console.

this is my bet too ^
either that or low battery on controller.
Is your controller fully loaded? Plugged over night?

when the controller is connecting through the XIM it will always say it's on full power but directly it will show the real state..

According to my PS3 user interface the controller is fully loaded. I will however plug it in for the night and try again in about 8-10 hours.


i'm am very VERY careful with my stuff and one of my cables just stopped working for absolutely no reason from one day to the other. it wouldn't even charge the controller which was what i was trying to use it for since it failed to work with the XIM..
soon..
