    hello to all,
    first post here for me, and do after read last 10 pages from this
    xbox related one. Sorry my bad english.

    I can't answer some question:
    - if plug chatpad on my xbox360 pad in 'pure' windows environment
    (only usb dongle and no xbox 360 in same room) chatpad is turned off?

    - if yes (chatpad is off) firmware can't receive input to turn it on, right?
    (from drivers)

    - if no (chatpad is on) how you obtained dump of data ?
    (understand that USB protocol analyser hardware is used,
    but take from pad [wired] or 'analyze' wireless traffic)

    - PS2Dev thread speak about custom firmware on both PSP and pad.
    (client/server) Why this is not possible on PC ?

    Sorry again for these questions, and thank you for your time.

    The chatpad data dump comes from a USB protocol analyzer that plugs between the gamepad and Xbox360. The dump is for the wired USB pad, not the wireless one.

    The firmware hack would of course work for the PC too, but it is a hardware modification, what many people are interested in however is a pure software solution, i.e. just plug the chatpad in, load a USB driver and have it working without soldering or firmware flashing.

    thank you for reply Grumbel,
    so why, in your opinion, anyone create firmware hack to made working on PC ?

    People as me, maybe can accept hardware mod, to have final solution
    for living room HTPC or carpc.

    This solution is too hard ? if yes, harder than made same thing for PSP ?

    too many question, i know, only to understand...

    I assume it would be pretty similar to the PSP thing, just look a few pages earlier in this thread, there you find code and information, but as its a hardware mod, it requires opening the thing and soldering, reflashing and what not, so its not easy by any means.

    Is there anything specific we need to make more progress?

    What are the next steps that still or will need to be taken?

    1) Somebody should use the information provided a few post earlier and try to implement chatpad handling on a different OS, since it might just be a libusb fluke in Linux.

    2) Somebody with more USB knowledge then I have should look at the logs to see if there is anything we missed so far.

    3) Some toying around with the timing would be valuable as well, since there is a constant stream of messages send to the chatpad and a counter going up in reply, i.e. maybe you need to do something to keep the chatpad alive

    4) Tell Microsoft to write a driver for Windows, since its just ridiculous to have the Xbox360 gamepad be an official PC controller, but then not even support your own add ons to it

    I've been playing around with the source from the after market wireless controller drivers available here http://www.katch.ne.jp/~morii/x360wc/index.html

    The biggest problem i have is i cant find a program that will let me send commands directly to a usb device in windows like your usbdebug program does.

    I have also posted on microsofts connect page, which i might add is an f'n nightmare to navigate. No reply yet tho....

    So far what i get (from xbox community site postings about this) is that they never intended to release drivers for windows and most likely will not. From this page also http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/x...0messengerkit/
    The Comment
    Chatting with friends and family on Xbox LIVEŽ and Windows-based PCs is easy using the Xbox 360 Messenger Kit.
    Means that you can chat to people with msn messenger from your xbox, never does it state you can plug it into your PC.

    /*Not good english yet, but I'm trying again and again)) Hello from Moscow (Russia Federation) */

    Greeting the driver developer here! )) I want to help u so much, but I need some kind of help too. I have read official Microsoft manual about driver programming it call "Microsoft Driver Foundation", and now I started programming and compiling a lot of samples like HidMiniport driver filter or XnaComposite driver filter. That's why I want to say u "Hey! Don't leave this theme!" , cause it won't be desided by itself.

    By the way, one month ago I have bougth chatpad and I want to make it work with your help!

    This is archived in Linux with libusb, it might very well be just a fluke in libusb or my lack of USB knowledge that is causing this and nothing related to the chatpad itself. So it would be helpful if somebody tries to send data on a different OS or via a kernel driver on Linux to see if that changes anything.
    Silly response on my part maybe, if it seems to stop responding after a single keypress, why not just init it again? (and everytime after a keypress is sent).
