    I have the same problem as you, I figured my Intel chipset would have been fine and now I just have to play on my other laptop which is XP 32bit for now...

    sucks, I'm stuck on Win7 64 bit :( My TE and SE are both recognized but aren't sending any inputs. My laptop unfortunately doesn't have an expresscard slot, so I have no idea what to do.

    Sorry to double post but to update this quote here, I bought this and just installed it. Tested it out and my stick is working perfect on it so I recommend this for anyone that's having a problem trying to get there PS3 stick to work on the PC
    I am curious has to whether this will allow my ps3 TE to work on my desktop:

    Newegg.com - Rosewill 4+1 VIA USB 2.0 PCI Adapter Model RC-103

    It seems to be the correct chipset but can anymore confirm that it is? Has anyone here had user experience with this product?

    I ordered this from Newegg as well and, just like The Game mario316, my PS3 TE stick now works on my computer. I'm using Windows 7 64bit as well with an intel motherboard. Quick plug in, installed the drivers automatically, and then I plugged my stick into the Rosewill card. All inputs work perfectly and I have no further problems.

    Try that Rosewill Adapter and hopefully, it should make yours work too. It's a way cheaper alternative to buying another Arcade Stick.

    I went ahead and bought it like over a month ago. The thing has been working great. Easy to install and yes it is plug and play. I am also using Windows 7 64 bit.

    I'm having a weird issue with my macbook pro. I have 2 OS: the mac one and windows 7 64 bit. When I plug in my ps3 se stick to the mac os, the mac recognizes the stick and it works fine. I also tried pressing the turbo and then testing a button and the lights did turn on. But when I switch over to windows 7 and test it there, the stick is recognized but the buttons don't work and when testing the turbo, the lights did not turn on.

    I don't understand what the issue is and it doesn't make sense why it won't work on both os. Any help would be great; thanks in advance.

    So, I'm one of the unlucky ones stuck with the wrong usb/chipset/thingamawhatsit and using a laptop and trying to get my PS3 stick working. I can't yank out the side of my laptop and stuff new stuff in, I've tried the ps3sixaxis_en driver thing, I've tried MotionInJoy, both returned with nothing. Am I effectively sunk?
    And, for what it's worth, I was thinking of getting my stick dual-modded so it'd be Xbox and Ps3 compatible, I hear Xbox sticks have more luck with computers so would getting the stick dual modded aid in connecting to the PC?

    The sticks might not be compatible with some newer Intel boards. My stick used to work on my old ASUS P5K-V Intel G33 Chipset, but since I upgraded to my GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3-B3 which is an Intel Z68 Chipset, it no longer works. It's identified as the "PC USB Wired Stick 8188", but like the others no buttons register in the test screen. Running Windows 7 x64.

    There is only "Enhanced Host Controller" and no "Universal Host Controller", if that's what you were looking for.

    Should answer the question. Looks like Intel switched away from UHCI on that board.

    There has to be a bypass, because I somehow managed to get my stick to work, I don't know how though. I recently bought a PS3 TE-S anticipating ahead of time that it wouldn't work so I bought a USB expansion card with a VIA chipset, but my TE-S got here today, and my USB card is still shipping all the way from China...

    Anyway, I was fiddling around with seeing if I could get it to work, and somehow, I managed to get it to work ONCE (after a good hour of messing around), after installing and then uninstalling MotionInJoy because it did not recognize the arcade stick, I unplugged my iPod USB cable and plugged my TE-S into the same USB port, at which point I checked in the game controllers part of Control Panel and it was detected, but not working. I browsed through the forums after disconnecting the stick, I saw a post saying some people could only get the stick to work if the stick was set to LS, and I had it set to DP for Dpad. I plugged it in while still under the Dpad option, at which point I pulled up the game controllers panel, so I could have it in front of me when I switched to LS. I tapped the stick and instantly noticed there was a response from the Joy Hat section, then I pressed all the buttons and all of 'em lit up while still on Dpad mode. Then I switched to LS, and the box with the + in it started moving. Then I switched to RS, and it gave me physical numbers right next to the box, confirming movement.

    I was stoked, to say the least, I opened up vanilla SF4, did all the Bison trials through once, then PM'd my friend on Steam that I got my stick to work on PC by some magical circumstance despite not having changed ANYTHING. To confirm it worked, I unplugged it and plugged it back in.

    Turns out it was a one hit wonder, I can't get it to work and haven't gotten it to work since, but I'm happy because that means I didn't waste my money on a USB expansion card for no reason xD I'm not sure what I did, all I know is it worked once.
    If I missed them with it then it was just a gimmick. If I hit them with it then it was all mindgames. At least, that's what I tell everyone I play against.

    For you laptop users out there, I just received this:

    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16839328039

    it's cheap and it works perfectly! Make sure to plug the stick into the USB 3.0 slot or else you'll spend 40 min. cursing the tech gods for hating your stick.

    the VIA chipset pci card works for me as well. unfortunately every time i shut down the pc i get a bluescreen now.
    i'm on windows 7 64bit

    any ideas?

    WOW. Just got my PCI card today and I'm mad as hell right now.

    $(KGrHqV,!lcE3H)66KcgBN-D9rmLow~~0_12.JPG

    This VERY OBVIOUSLY is a VIA chipset card. I plugged it in, installed fine (after waiting 11 days for it to finally arrive) turns out they sent me a card with an NEC chipset. That's what I get for buying cheap chinese crap...

    I've decided that it would be FAR cheaper to simply switch to a USB wireless solution and to purchase one of the PCI adapters than to buy an entirely new TE stick.. The cost of SSIV: AE with the addition of a new TE just wouldn't be worth it without first trying what seems to be a good fix in this thread.

    I'm also purchasing the "Rosewill 4+1 VIA USB 2.0 PCI Adapter Model RC-103" from amazon. So wish me luck!

    Hey guys, I have a question. So I bought this Round 1 TE PS3 stick from this guy off craigslist, 100$ and the condition of it is almost near brand new, he used it only a few times and then sold it, said he preferred the pad. Once I got the stick I found out you need to have a VIA chipset with usb 1.1 compatibility, so I went ahead and bought this one due to reviews of people saying it fixed the fight stick issue : http://www.amazon.com/Port-USB-2-0-Desktop-Card/dp/B001L4HXVI/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
    I got it today, plugged it in my computer, and plugged my fight stick into it. It STILL doesn't work. I have windows 7 64 bit, and when I go to video game controls setup in windows, it doesnt detect the buttons or the joystick, but I do get PC USB Wired stick 8838 in Street fighter 4 controller settings. I'm really frustrated right now because I was looking forward to using this stick.
    Any advice on what I can try? Also, I have attached a picture to show you how I've plugged in the pci card, as you can see in the picture attached the small chip of the pci card doesnt fit properly into the pci slot of my motherboard, my pci slot in my motherboards chip is too big, however my pc still detects the PCI card and devices are working on it,except the fight stick. I'm wondering if this is why its not working.
    Note: Other devices such as external hard drive and my phone adapter are working fine while I plug them into this PCI card, so I dont know why the fight stick isnt working. I have yet to test it on a PS3 as I don't have one, but I will go to a friends house and test it if there is no luck in this thread.
    Thanks a lot

    I know I have a VIA USB card somewhere. Somehow everything in my PC is a via chipset EXCEPT for the USB controller. I have a few open PCI slots so no big deal, but this is just stupid. No custom driver workarounds yet?

    I am pleased with the TE-S(standard SSFIV TE) I just purchased though.

    Hi guys.

    I've been trying to get my Madcatz PS3 TE stick to work with Arcade Edition.
    I'm running Win7 Ultimate 64-bit. The laptop registers it as "PC USB Wired Stick 8838". Went on Game Controller Settings > Properties and all buttons work.

    But the problem is, it's not working when I load up AE PC.
    Although it worked for regular SFIV.

    I'm running this laptop: http://www.asus.com/Notebooks/Gaming_Powerhouse/G50V/#specifications

    Any fix by any chance?

    Out of curiosity, a USB hub contains a hardware controller within it, so is there a chance of someone finding one around that has a compatible USB chipset with the fightsticks? This would make it a lot easier for the laptop users around here. Sorry if this was asked before, I am a little late to the party.

    I bought this PMCI card for cheap and it fits in my 54 mm slot even though it is a 34 mm slot. You have to plug the stick into the USB 3.0 slot (the right one) and it works fine. I tried using a 2.0 Hub in that slot and my stick didn't work. I don't know too much about hardware, but it seems having a USB 3.0 slot is the key here.

    I recently installed SSF4 AE on my laptop and am having trouble getting my stick to work with it...

    When I plugged it in, it installed all the drivers automatically but in my device manager it shows in Human Interface Devices as "USB Input Device" and "HID-Compliant game controller" rather than showing up as "PC USB Wired Stick 8838" in Game Controllers.

    Anyone have an idea how to fix this? Buying parts is out of the question since I'm running it on a laptop.

    Check the front page of SRK there's an article regarding Capcom's acknowledgement of the problem and an upcoming patch fixing the issue.

    That doesn't seem to acknowledge the fightstick problem, only the keyboard problem.

    If you check the first point it says, "Some keyboards and gaming devices." I assume the TE falls under that category as they also state later on that controllers that "have more functions than a standard keyboard" (ie. the turbos the home button, etc.) will have problems. I would wait until the patch comes out. Otherwise capcom will probably have a riot on their hands from all madcatz users.

    I find that hard to believe because I've gotten my stick to work with my old PC, which had an Intel chipset (which, I'm understanding is natively compatible with fightsticks). But my current PC and laptop are AMD so I'm in a bit of a bind, especially with my laptop since I don't want to have to buy parts for it.

    This is not something that patching the game will fix -- my laptop recognizes that the fightstick is plugged in but does not register inputs from it, even outside of the game. I can plug in a standard PS3 Dualshock controller and I have no problems.

    Do you guys think those extensible host controller interface (http://www.intel.com/technology/usb/xhcispec.htm) USB 3.0 ports would work? They're supposed to replace the universal HCI, so I assume all UCHI devices would be compatible with a xHCI port?

    I ask because I live in Australia and newegg and amazon don't ship here, so I can't order that Rosewill RC-103 card. I'm really desperate to try to get this thing working.

    Amazon does ship some things to Australia. http://www.amazon.com/Port-USB-2-0-Desktop-Card/dp/B001L4HXVI/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top ships here. It will cost you about $15 including shipping and take 10-forever business days.
    http://www.computertarget.com.au/oscom/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=80_81&products_id=1098 Apparently sells them in Australia but I've tired to contact them about price of shipping and stock and haven't gotten a response. I'll try again; maybe you'll have better luck. Don't forget to check computer stores around you, the chipset you're after is VT6212L.

    Hi, am a Newbe :)

    I have Madcatz PS SF4 arcade stick, it worked fine & still does on my computer whilst playing 'Street Fighter 4, on PC'.

    Just bought 'Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition - pc'. It runs fine on my keyboard but doesn't run on my 'Madcatz PS SF4 arcade stick'.

    Looked at the forum & apparently Madcatz has difficult in running on PC if they have some thing running on Intel USB connections. Found out that to make the Arcade stick work you'd need to buy a USB controller card which uses VIA chip.

    Managed to purchase this VIA USB controller Card (only one slot left on motherboard - PCI-Express)

    '
    NEW PCI Express PCI-E to 4 USB Ports (3+1) Card Adapter
    (SUPPORT VISTA)

    VIA VT6212L USB Chip & Pericom PI7C9X110 PCIe Bridge chip'
    %21Bc6duKgBmk%7E$%28KGrHqEOKiEEq4GJ0fw%21BK2m9IMowQ%7E%7E_12.JPG

    I have managed to install it & it hasn't really done anything. It recognises the arcade stick - PC USB Wired Stick 8818. However the arcade stick will not run on SSF4 A.E. (It recognises the buttons but not the stick) :(:(:(

    Can anybody help me please to get the stick to work on SSF4 A.E.

    You did not have to buy a USB Card when your TE already worked on the PC.
    The problem you have right now is specific to SSFIV:AE PC.
    Put the switch to LS.

    I couldn't find these things anywhere that would ship to Australia. I just went ahead with the Amazon one, because there were reviews from people who said they bought it specifically for the PS3 Madcatz TE stick and it worked for them.

    Only the Chun-Li TE works on PC.
    Mad Catz changed the PCB.

    All other PlayStation 3 TE do not work on PC if you do not have compatible USB.

    Just wanna confirm that this solution worked for me! I don't have SSIV: AE yet, but confirmed it with Blazblue (I didn't set everything up correctly, but all the controls work).

    Can't wait to try this with AE :D

    having the same issue with a round one PS3 TE on a unibody Macbook, stick works fine in OSX and even in Parallels running GGPO on WinXP, but fails to work in bootcamp, it registers as "PC USB Wired Stick 8838" in Game Controllers but fails to recognize any input, one of the many reasons i'll never buy a PC, all this because of driver issues when it's simply plug and play in OSX? lame.

    Just popping in because of a recent malfunction that occurred to my Round 1 PS3 TE as a result of this particular VIA chipset PCI card. I'm running Vista 32bit so I'm on a slightly antiquated system, but for the most part, the mentioned PCI card has some issues including not being immediately recognized by Windows (and subsequently installing the drivers) and causing my TE to malfunction. The thread I previously linked describes what happened in greater (albeit slightly vague) detail.

    tl;dr look for model VT6212L model cards, not VT6202 cards.
