Gamepad error:This device cannot start (Code 10)
I have bought this brandless twin-vibration controller:
When I plug it to my Intel quad core (q6600) computer with the latest XP updates, I'm getting the "This device cannot start (Code 10)" message (9 out of 10 cases). Under Device Manager, the controller has a yellow "!". If I disable/enable the device, the driver issue is resolved. However if I try to calibrate it (Control Panel/Game controllers), nothing moves on the screen (controller frozen). As well, it's not responding in any games I tried. After rebooting, the controller reverts to the initial "!" driver issue. I tried a different USB port, same problems.
Using DirectX diagnostics, the controller is listed as:
Twin USB Vibration Gamepad Vendor ID 0x0810 Product ID 0x0001 Force Feedback Driver c:\windows\USB Vibration\8101\EZFRD32.dll
However, if I plug it to an older computer (AMD Duron, running XP w/o any updates) the controller works flawlessly.
The controller is using Microsoft's generic HID drivers ("HID-compliant game controller" as listed in Device Manager), so I can't really update the drivers.
I'm thinking the controller is not USB 2.0 friendly (although it says it is in the product description) - but this is the only explanation considering it works fine with the older system which has USB 1.1 ports. Is there an adapter to downgrade to 1.1?
