Can't Connect My 360 Madcatz TE Fightstick to PC


I am having big problem with my 360 SFIV TE Fightstick.

When I connect it to the computer the lights flash once and it turns off. I get a driver error and it shows up in device manager as an unknown device. I have tried the following

  1. Uninstall any old Xbox controller drivers on the computer > Restart > Install newer drivers
  2. Same, but just plug it in to let them download themselves
  3. Go to device manager and click on the unknown device > Update drivers manually > choose from a list and uncheck only show compatible drivers > pick the xbox controller driver… but it’s not there
  4. Same as above, but try to install driver manually from the system32 file. It tells me Unknown Device already is the best driver and too damn bad.
  5. Plugging it into multiple computers. It doesn’t work on my wife’s laptop either.

It works fine on the 360 and wired 360 controllers work fine on my computer. This is just getting frustrating.

Does anyone have any other ideas?


What OS do you have, also do you have the 32 bit or 64 bit version of that OS?


64 bit version of windows 7


Are you connected to a hub, PCI card or directly to the motherboard USB port?


So the stick works on 360’s but not any PC’s?




Motherboard USB port


Also, I have a G73jh from Asus if that helps.
