    Just an advice, they build quality is utter crap. I bought a GC to USB Mayflash adapter from ebay, it worked fine for a few days. After that the shoulders started to behave in a weird way, getting stuck or with an added input lag (I ordered it to play SSB 64 in a competitive way so i am pretty picky about input lag). 2 weeks later the adapter just died. I didnt drop it, hit it or anything, it just died.My computer no longer recognizes it as a valid USB device, so its obviously the cable.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    IN MY OPINION you have the right to blame them if they don't give you any support, but he bought the adapter from ebay so..

    I have a Classic Controller adapter for my arcade stick, bought the adapter in summer and its still working today. I guess you have an adapter coming from a bad batch, it happens with electronics

    That's odd, my 3in1 USB adapter has worked flawless for almost 2 years.

    And that is really weird how it just randomly died

    Yeah I have a few adapters from them that work fine. Just because they had one faulty unit doesn't mean the entire company is out to get you. Get real.
