Which cable did you get? I got the hex-com, which they
said is the best. It only has one light on it, I
think. All I've ever seen is amber when I first plug
it in, but within a couple seconds it always turns
green. I've had a few issues with 'controller not
found' but that was when my laptop had been sitting
for a month and the battery had died, killing all my
settings. I don't use it except for that software and
my bios battery is dead I think. If I uninstall and
reinstall the software it takes care of it and then I
don't have any more problems till I've let it sit for
a month again.
You're in Texas, right? Maybe someone on here could
give you a hand? If you were here in the area I'd give
it a shot with mine and see how our luck was. (I'm in
I've heard Uwe's name before, and I think he is the
designer. If he thinks the problem is the cable then I
would bet he's right.
