Please Help!

ok so the problem is, this xim will not connect to my xbox 360.
when i plug in the xim to the xbox, the xbox control connected flashes then cuts off, same goes with xim.
the xim will cycle through different colours then load the colour for the config BUT it cuts off and starts again!

Here are the list of things i tried that did not work:

* tried 2 different xbox 360 wired controllers ( both genuine )
* connected the controller to xim by itself on the xbox 360 & pc
* tried different usb cables
* tried all usb ports on xbox 360 ( phat )
* tried a different xbox 360 ( slim ) plus all usb ports
* tried restore to factory default and while holding the red button when connect to pc
* tried deleting all config on xim and adding new configs after restoring to factory default

Now here the list of things this xim works with:

* connecting to pc mode ( blue light )
* works on my playstation  :o


Setup:

Logitech g400 mouse
Logitech keyboard

Odd that it connects to your ps3 but not your 360. Are you using the same usb cable for both consoles or a different cable? Has it ever worked on your xbox?

I know you mentioned it above but to be clear, are you using this with your controllers?

I'm at a loss given what you've done listed in your first post. I'll move this over to support and we'll see if Obsiv has any input.

Sorry to hear you are having problems. Yes, this is really odd. Can you plug your controller into your Edge and Edge into your PC? I want to know if your PC sees your Edge as an Xbox controller. You can tell by opening up Control Panel and go to Game Controllers. Check to see if it shows up as an Xbox 360 Controller.

unfortunately the controller does not show up in control panel/game controllers when connected to the xim
but without connecting it to the xim it does show.

Ok, these are *genuine* Microsoft Xbox 360 controllers?

Also, are you certain everything was working correctly (including ingame) for your PS3?

i tried 2 controllers:

1.
i purchase a genuine controller off ebay yesterday and received it today but that did not work with the xim
but now after searching on google, it might be a import cheap copy of a xbox 360 controller.

2.
i ask my brother for his controller and he said it was a genuine controller but im not sure.

so im going to go out today to my local EBgames and buy a brand new controller and see if that works.
and yes, everything works on ps3 including in game with mouse and keyboard.

Ok, then, it must be the controller. Be careful when it comes to eBay -- you never know what the origin of that controller really is.
