Radio shack psx to usb device


#1

well i purchased it like around december works perfectly fine…
problem is i lost the installation disc/drivers, it was an orange disc with the red radioshack logo, i found some drivers online but they have alot of trouble detecting rapid inputs.

can any one send or rapidshare good drivers?


#2

Is this Sector 7?


#3

I think I still have the disk at home somewhere. I’ll check when I get home from work and if I have them I’ll def get them to you.


#4

i have it on floppy somewhere

the windows drivers are fine for it, i’ve found… just install it as a generic usb joystick.


#5

what? you shouldn’t need the disk. every machine i’ve plugged it into detected it just fine.

but i might be able to help you out.


#6

hmm, i’ll do some more toying around tonight.


#7

yea i had those drivers but like i said had trouble detecting multiple rapid inputs.
im thinking it might be the usb hub


#9

It does the same thing to me. Having drivers that may fix this would be AWESOME!


#10

You don’t need the drivers dude. I never installed them, and it still works great for me.

Unless radioshack released a new model that Needs them, it’ll work perfectly fine as a plug&play device.


#11

as for rapid inputs, mine works fine. i can kattobi cancel with my stick.

i think it’s your hub


#12

Wait, I have the blue and black one. Is that the same one you guys have?


#13

Forget matching colors…

What is the product id/device id on it? Windows you should be able to get that from device manager, linux would be under /proc/usb (I think?). OSX you can get it from System Profiler.

I’ll get mine when I get home. FYI, I have a radio shack one that’s all black. Works great for me on FreeBSD and OSX, no drivers.


#14

I have got mine on me right now, its black, possibly they one numbski has, and I have never had a problem with it.

The only identifying number on it is the catalog number which is 26-729.


#15

Chaos…per my last post, what product id/device id are listed for it?


#16

Where exactly would I find that in the computer?

I have been trying to look around and the only thing I found is that the computer recognizes it as a “USB Joystick” and like a PS controller, its set up for one joystick and 12 buttons.

Also I checked my device manager and I cant figure out which one of the USB devices is the right one. But then I am not the best with computers, so I will leave this up to someone else.


#17

Presuming Windows, right-click on My Computer, and browse to Device Manager. I’m not in front of a windows box at the moment, so I can’t give you the click-by-click. It’ll be attached to the USB bus.

Here’s a copy of the setup.exe from my radioshack install disc.

And this is what the disc looked like if it helps…

Mine is also catalog number 26-729

Per Apple System Profiler:

Manufacturer: GreenAsia Inc.
Product ID: 0x0003
Vendor ID: 0x0e8f

Claims that it draws 500mA of USB power if anyone cares. :slight_smile:

BTW zombie. Nothing beats this:
