Xbox 360 controller right motor makes loud noise

I got a new xbox 360 controller yesterday. The buttons are good, soft and responsive but I think I have a problem with the right motor. It mostly make sound while not vibrates at all !!!

Long story: I play Assassin Creed Brotherhood for a while and feel the vibration's weak. So I follow this thread to try test the vibration . I download both x360ce_lib32_r848_VS2010.zip andx360ce.App-2.1.2.191.zip, put them in the same folder and run the program. However, it need something and tell me it will download it but take forever to load (internet is OK).

Pic 1: the program need something.

Pic 2: If I skip it, there's a warning

Despite that, the program still recognizes correctly all the inputs. Then I try to test the vibration, the left is ok but the right one just make a loud noise while the vibration is weaker. I tell the support guy (at the shop) and he say the reason is those 2 motors are different. I still can return it if I want.

Short story: It's make a loud noise when it vibrates, the sound is totally different than the left motor.

My question is: is my controller is bad? Should I return it or use another tool to test the controller again?

I would return it. It sounds like the right motor is not connected to the mechanics that make it vibrate.

Hi, OUTSIDER62. If you and anyone read this own a xbox360 controller, please test its motors vibration with tool like x360ce or others...

I found this link (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.xna.framework.input.gamepad.setvibration.aspx)  and seem there is a difference between the two motors, one with low and  high frequency. But mine sounds ain't good.

I will return it on Monday, but still curious about this problem :)
