My Midi adapter for wii is having issues. it only wants to work sometimes.
It has trouble powering on and getting recognized as a game controller.
Sometimes no matter how many times i press the power on button it wont turn on. however at other times it has gotten to work.
After trying last night for a long time, it had the problem again. at first i thought it was completely defunct but i noticed the midi indicator does light up when i hit keys on my keyboard. the only problem is the controller wont turn on and get recognized by the game when i press the rock band button.
Somtimes it DOES work however.
I cant notice a pattern around when it will turn on and when it wont, it seems a bit arbitrary to me.
My question is, do you think this is an issue with the rock band software? i have heard the wii version is super glitchy and i have experienced a few of them myself. is this some kind of usb recognition error by the rock band wii software? or is this an issue with the adapter itself and would a replacement fix the issue?
Perhaps i just got unlucky and got a faulty adapter. on amazon.com i haven't read anywhere about this issue in the reviews and it has 4.5 stars so it doesnt seem to be that common a problem.
I did read somewhere else someone had a similar issue and their solution was to simply reset the game and reconnect the midi controller. This however didnt work when i tried.
Any help would be appreciated!
