Hello, I just started experiencing odd problems with this USB controller I have.
I plug it in, and a few seconds later, my system says "USB Device Not Recognized".
There are times when it does get recognized and the keys do work, but there are also times when it's recognized but the keys don't work.
I think it may be possible that I should replace my controller, but I'm just making sure if it's already bit the dust before I replace it.

I also noticed something: I press the "analog mode" button on my controller, and the light still does come on, a sign it isn't busted yet. I've already tried starting the HID access and replacing the drivers, done the registry hack (DisableSelectiveSuspend) and it still doesn't work. What to do?

P.S. I think it's a problem with my gamepad's USB plug. Is there a possibility that I can change the plug?

Do you have another USB device you can plug in and wiggle around and see if the connection and the port is good? If it's the port, you can get a USB controller card for under 10 bucks. Trying to replace a male USB plug on a cord is not a easy task. Probably be better off to get another controller
