USB cord on the controll is becoming extremely hot....

The USB cord, on my logitech dual action gamepad, is becoming very hot when I plug it into my comuter. It also says that there is a power surge in the hub port. There seems to be a spot on the wire that is more "melted" than the rest of the chord. So please, give me a solution to this problem. Thank you.

It sounds like there is an electrical short in the game pad's cable. If it is under warranty, you should contact Logitech. If not, it is unlikely that you will be able to fix this. It clearly sounds unsafe to continue to use it.

Logitech Profiler does not detect my logitech dual action gamepad, why? I have a computer that uses vista 64bit.

Hi, Please uninstall any LGPS version present on your OS - Then please proceed to clean boot. -> Unplug any USB devices connected to the computer ( Less keyboard + mouse ) If you have a corded keyboard + mouse please use it rather than a cordless device. -> Go to device manager -> Delete all the USB HOST CONTROLLER -- All of them -- -> The host controller might reinstall them itslef, let the computer handle the reinstallation -> If the computer does not reinstall the host controllers, trigger the detection using the DM function " Scan for new hardware " ( The computer with magnifier icon ) -> Once reinstalled, clean boot -> Reinstall the software, plug the hardware when needed. -> Should work.
If a device as been previously flagged with error, it will redetect the device without the flag, unless there is some serious issue with the hardware/OS
If the problem persist, swap computer and try, if it does not solve then contact customer service for replacement
Thanks and have a nice day Julien

My logitec dual action controllers fail intermittently

Yup, the USB connection is not secure. Its either your gamepad's wire or your PC's USB port itself. Try using other USB ports. If still the same problem you might have to buy a new gamepad.

I just bought the logitect dual action usb controller and it came with no download instructions. where would I go to find the correct download for the controller?

I would try Logitech's website first, then if not found I would go to I have a Logitech gamepad that I bought new and Windows detected mine and setup it up correctly without having to find a driver somewhere else.

Before i buy!

Alright I dont know much about that game, but with logitech gamepads you can use profiler softwares that let you use gamepads in games. You have to assign commands in the profiler for that. There are many available: Xpadder, Joy2key, Pinnacle Game profiler and specially made for logitech, the Logitech Game Profiler. I am familiar with logitech profiler and I help people make profiles for their games.

I just checked this game on youtube and looks like I can make a profile for it. Let me know if you decide to buy dual action and I will reply with your profile with instructions. I will give you a download link.
