Make sure you plug the stick into a working USB port before starting up the game.
If the game starts up first, then you plug in the stick, the game will refuse to detect.

The stick that came out back in 2008?

Oh crud I over looked that.

What Processor you are using in your PC?

Computer mother boards with non-Intel chip sets will be incompatible.
So if your PC is AMD, it already not going to work (not that AMD is inferior).

See the Original Mad Catz TE for the PS3 and the Round uses UHCI protocols (Proprietary Intel Standard) instead of OHCI or EHCI (Open Standard)

The whole thing been detailed and documented on another thread

There are 2 fixes.

  1. if you have a Desktop PC, you could install a PCI card for USB ports that have the UHCI chip. This is often left out on the packing so good Luck. And It does not help Laptops.

  2. Open up the Mad Catz TE and replace the PCB/Encoder inside with a PCB that would be PC compatible.
