I had an older console with a play and charge kit working fine. Got a brand-spanking new console and a brand-spanking new play and charge kit for Xmas, but when I plug the new controller into the usb port the light on the charging cord doesn't go on and the battery doesn't charge more than a little. It works fine as long as it's plugged in, but I'd like for it to actually charge.
I tried the old cord, which definitely worked on my OLD console, and it has the same problem on the NEW console. I've tried plugging it in in different ports, and it's always the same. Is there a problem with my usb ports?
Not sure if it's related, but I also had a problem when I was using my hard drive transfer cable. It took me several tries, and I had to unplug it and reconnect it several times before I finally got the transfer window to come up on the screen. That's why I thought my ports themselves might have a problem.
Thanks for any help!!!
