  1. ds4windows not connecting ps4 controller


    hello, I am trying to connect my ps4 controller to my pc so I can use it for fortnite but I seem to be able to download the ds4 drivers successfully but when I plug it in it just flashes orange and then the light turns off. I can't even see the controller connected in devices and printers and I have tried both USB 2.0 and 3.0.

    :)

    PS4 on Windows 10 with DS4Windows Troubleshoot


    I am trying to use my PS4 controller on my PC with the program DS4Windows. Initially, it worked perfectly, but something got screwed up and now it doesn't. When I plug it in or try to connect it through bluetooth, it registers as "Unknown USB Device (Configuration Descriptor Request Failed)". Before, it would register as "XBox Controller", and it would be given its own menu in the device manager. I've also double checked the controller with my lap top using DS4Windows and it works properly, so I'm pretty sure this is an issue with the the installation or the driver assignments on the PC being screwed up somehow. I have uninstalled the program and reinstalled it, and it doesn't fix the problem. I've also uninstalled and installed the driver (Virtual Bus Driver) using ScpDriver, but that doesn't work either.

    Any ideas how to fix this? I was going to try to reinstall the drivers for the XBox controller that Windows 10 comes with and then try reinstalling the program, but I'm not sure how I would do that.

  4. ds4windows not connecting ps4 controller

    I can't pair my ps4 controller since 1703 update

    Could you please describe how you fixed this issue...I am having the same issue.

    Only when connected over Bluetooth, my PS4 controller's light immediately turns off and games don't discover it. The bluetooth menu shows that the device is connected, but no games actually recognize it. It seems to work in Steam Big Picture mode but that's
    it.

    When connected over USB everything works fine and my games recognize it as a PS4 controller. The issues when connected over bluetooth started happening in 1703 update.

    I've tried every recommendation on this forum and nothing has solved it...My workaround is to use

    DS4Windows
    , and use it as an xbox controller...but I'd prefer for my games to see it as a PS4 controller.
