Are you using game port of USB controllers?

There are no older drivers for the game port devices, since the form in
which they were written is not supported on Windows XP - however, just plug
in the controller, then go into Control Panel/Game Controllers and select
Add, then scroll to the proper device (like Microsoft SideWinder) listing,
highlight it and then OK your way out.

The correct drivers necessary are already part of Windows XP and will be
installed for you by the system. You will lose the old "profile"
capabilities formerly available in Game Controllers, but if the games
themselves support the settings, you can save them there.

Sounds like your USB chipset may be the issue. Please make sure you have at
leaset Service Pack 1 (preferably Service Pack 2) installed and update your
USB drivers.

I tried installing a dual shock game controller. It works fine on my 98
based lap top but it does not work at all on my XP based pc's. None of my
pc based machines has HID listed. How do I get HID for XP Home?

Are your USB ports KNOWN to be working with other devices like USB printers
etc?

Are you installing the software for the game controllers BEFORE you connect
it to the PC?

If you have VIA USB controllers you need to make sure you are running new
drivers. There was an issue with older VIA drivers and game controllers.

How do I get the newer drivers and will they give me the HID catagory under
device manager that I have been told is needed for the game controllers to
function. I have XP home and all the updates from the MS site.

How do I know which driver to download? It has VT6202 and VT6212 and also
says to NOT get them confused. I have XP service pack 2, they have XP
service pack 1 as needed. I went to device manager and clicked on each USB
cat. and clicked update already.

Hi Pred,

Compare the specifications of the drivers to the specifications
of your computer system to ensure you're installing the right
ones. Check the documentation that came with your PC. :-)

Guess no one can help me on this. Thanks for all yout ime and effort but none
of your advice worked. Looks like I have to switch to a Mac to get game
controllers to work. I really don't know what else to do. Why do some PCs
that have XP home have the HID cat, and some don't ? Look up Dual Shock
troubles and you will find dozens and dozens of other XP users that share my
problem.

Pred,

You only need to follow my last advice and install the drivers.
The only thing you have to do is determine which version you
need to install. If you don't want to go through the trouble of
looking up the documentation about your system for yourself,
you can just try one of the 2 drivers instead.

You have a 50/50 chance to get the right driver the first time!

Hi Pred,

What did you try exactly? Can you detail the steps and the results?
Are you now able to see HID entries in your Device Manager?

The USB ports all worked with various other hardware, I installed the
drivers for the dual shock before connecting the dual shock controller to the
usb port. I went to device manager and check the USB ports and clicked on
update drivers, I went to the viaarena.com site and downloaded their drivers.
I went online to check on known problems with the dual shock controller and
found that dozens of other people have the same problem I have. I tried
starting all over and wiping the hard drive and reinstalling windows and
everything else. Nothing helped, I then went again to the viaarena site and
downloaded their drivers and it still does not help. I still cannot see HID
under device manager. I have XP home service pack 2 installed on an
EMachines W2646 with 1 gig ram.

Hi Pred,

Thanks for posting that information! It's going to make it easier
for everyone reading this thread to understand the problem. :-)

You also say that some others have reported the same issue;
Could you post those links so we can see what's been tried?

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.games (More info?)

I found the other people with this problem by going to the website of the
store where I purchased the dual shock controller. There are 88 remarks
about attempting to get XP and dual shocks to work together. After reading
and doing more research on my own that is how I found out about the missing
HID cat under device manager. Most of the people that are having troubles do
not know to even look for HID but the few that I could track down all were
lacking HID under device manager. If you read many of the complaints they
mention it does not work with XP, it does work with XP if you have HID
listed. I found 88 complaints about dual shock not working under dual
shock reviews under the ebgames website. I have spent considerable time and
effort tracking down which PCs using XP that could use a dual shock and which
PCs using XP that could not. Everytime an XP based PC could not use it that
I found, it was lacking HID.

Out of curiosity, how many of these machines are running XP SP2 and how
many on SP1? Is there a commonality among computer brands? How are the 88
individuals viewing things in Device Manager? Is it by Devices by type,
Devices by connection, Resources by type or Resources by connection? Have
any of these folks run System File Checker?

Hi Pred,

Do you have a working USB mouse attached to your computer?
Does the Dual Shock work if you connect it to another PC?
Have you upgraded to SP 2?
Try the suggestions in this article as well:

I could not track down all the info for everyone else, but on the few I could
here is what I found. On my PC I had XP SP1 and no HID, I am now running XP
SP2 and still do not have HID. My room mate has XP SP1 and has HID on a
different brand PC. Some Dells and some Gateways seem to have the same
problem I do but I could not determine if they were using SP1 or SP2. Not
sure about if anyone ran System File Checker.

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.games (More info?)

I have stopped trying to fix the missing HID problem for a while since I
became frustrated with it. I still cannot get the files the website says I
need. The listed files it says are needed are

Hidusb.sys

Hidclass.sys

Hidparse.sys

Mouhid.sys

I no longer have access to a computer that has HID listed under device
manager. Any ideas?
