1) I connected the two receivers through a USB adapter to a laptop and both controls were synchronized OK. I can confirm that going to Control Panel, Gaming Devices, where I saw that the controls and buttons working properly.
2) I did the same test connecting to another laptop and everything is working correctly
3) When I connect the receivers to the PC where I want to play, they are not synchronized, at any time the receivers have the green light blinking quickly and nothing happens if I press the buttons on the controllers.
Nor nothing happens if I press the sync button on the receivers
The USB ports are working properly because the receivers are detected by Windows XP. The problem is the sync between receiver and controller.
I installed a fresh Windows XP SP2 on a VMware and not synch
I installed a fresh Windows Vista on VMware and not synch
If I turn off the receivers, the red light of the controllers remains flashing for a few seconds and then shuts down
I tried to get off the batteries and put them again keeping pressed the L1 and L2 buttons at the same time, and also R1 and R2 at the same time and nothing happened
4) Thinking about some type of interference with the signal, I place one of the laptop next to the CPU and I plugged the receivers using the USB adapter, and the controllers synchronized OK.
Any help is appreciated

would u explain how u got it to hook up in the first place? i am having the same exact problem as you. I hook it up and then the green LED on the reciever blinks not slow as it normally does but it doesn't blink fast either. after that happens the red LED on the controller does not show up at all. my computer does not recognise it and the same with my PS3

I have precisely the same problem you have with my Logitech Cordless Action PS2 controller on my PC. Same symptoms with the lights blinking. Hopefully there is another post on this forum with someone who came up with an answer.
Doesn't make sense to me because this worked for me before.

I have the same problems as you all. I would certainly like to know the conditions of getting it to hook up to begin with.... it's like sayin' "It's possible!" I just had a thought that I wanted to add. I've bought logitech for many years. I stick with logitech because they've never done me wrong, and the stuff I get from them works where I need it to. I notice in this case that Logitech doesn't want to pitch in on this problem.... I would assume it is marketing.... but their computer version is what they are saying to us. I have a mouse from a million years ago.... made by logitech that still works in every pc I plug it into. I have speakers that I bought long ago that still pound out my music. I bought a cordless ps2 controller.... and it's a paper weight now. I guess you can't win em all, but man.... no support whatsoever from Logitech.... not a peep on this issue. I'm disappointed, to be honest.

Well stated Zynchnod. I bought one of these before and it worked fine. I think the latest batch of them are defective and Logitech won't own up to it. I bought two of these recently and they are both DOA and won't synch despite the rumble working and the lights flashing. Wish I could RMA this back to Logitech for an exchange.

I got the same problem. (Both controllers work on two other PCs)
Here's what I tried (nothing of which helped):
- I sent one of the controllers back to logitech and got a new one
- I bought a new usb -> playstation adapter
- I tried different operating systems
- I tried different BIOS revisions
- I spent HOURS doing research on this matter
Nothing helped, no google entry, none of the glorious FAQ tips from Logitech (sarcasm alert), no forum post... nothing. Got screwed by Logitech again, thanks a lot.

Well, they only are responsible for it working with a PS2. If it doesn't work with a PS2, then they are responsible for it not working. If it doesn't work with a PC, they aren't liable per they have nothing to do with the USB adapters for PS2 controllers. So it's hit and miss with PC compatibility and if it doesn't work, you pretty much need to be A+ certified to have an outside chance of figuring out what is wrong.
