Connected USB cable to N64 controller Answered

I used a stripped a USB cable and Just a usb cable no adapters I try plugging it in all it says is "USB Device Not Recognized" any driver availiable?


What is the cheapest arduino,pic board or micro controller.

Thanks for the help guys really helped.

The output of a N64 won't go to a USB cable without electronics in the middle.

What do you want to do with it ?

You'd need an arduino, or a PIC to make the interface to USB. There's code out there that can do what you want. An Arduino Leonardo has a lot of the clever bits of USB-ery done for you.


N64 controllers speak over the wires in a protocol but it definitely isn't universal serial bus.

@author Look it up, you can easily connect through a microcontroller (pic, arduino, etc) and the arduino will translate.

What, You just kind of soldered the wires together?
