I have a usb adapter that allows you to plug two ps2 controllers into the pc via a usb socket. I bought it from play.com a while ago and it worked fine with Windows XP. I bought a new computer with Windows Vista and this is the first time i have tried to use the adapter and i am having problems getting Vista to detect the controllers. The adapter was detected okay and auto-installed without a problem but when you plug a controller into the adapter the controller is not detected and you can't add it through the control panel game controllers menu is empty. Any ideas how to fix this?

Did you check the manufacturer's website for Vista drivers yet?

I can't seem to find out who manufactured the Playstation 2 joypad adapter. On the front it says play.com and on the back it says Model No. JS-909A, Made in China. Last time i checked play.com don't manufacture any items just sell them.

I've had a look and I can't find any drivers for that JS-909A other than this one:

This is probably the one you get with the device though. Sorry buddy.

Just in case you decide to buy another adapter instead of going back to XP, I use the Elecom JC-PS101U which I bought when I was in Tokyo and it works fine on Vista. It only supports one joypad but the JC-PS102U is the two joypad version and I think that would also work.

Sorry I couldn't be any more help. Vista continues to confound me.
