I recently purchased a USB Hub/USB Converter.It basically converts any console controller into PC compatible controllers,in the category of Playstation 2,Gamecube Nintendo,and Microsoft Xbox controllers.The first problem I experienced was that the USB Hub/Converter would disconnect without any notice besides the sound effect on the computer.I would simply plug it in,and it would stay active for around 2-5 minutes.After that,the sound effect plays when the device is supposedly disconnected,and thats what it certainly does.
The steps I've taken where installing the software drivers that came with the product.And then reinstalling all of my USB drivers.
I did an experimental test on another computer.Ironically it worked perfect on the other model.There was no disconnect notice and I didn't even need to install the drivers because they where already configured.The USB Hub/Converter is basically listed as a game controller.The computer model that it worked perfectly for was in fact old,it was an old gateway that came pre-installed with Windows 98.
I know that theres nothing wrong with the hardware part of my USB(s).I've used a digital camera that connects to a USB and it's never had any problems.
Any help and suggestions would be widely appreciated
