Playing around with Drummer for a personal blog
Woke up to snow on the ground, October 13th.#
  • I own a couple of 8bitdo's bluetooth gaming controllers. I've had them for at least a couple of years. We don't use them very often, but the other night we tried to connect one of them up to our Nintendo Switch and nothing I tried would work.##
  • I tried a firmware upgrade the next day, also no go. As a last resort, I emailed 8bitdo's support. They responded and asked for pictures of my controller, I did that. They sent back some reset steps. I tried them and they failed. I thought for sure this controller was garbage. I tried another micro-USB cable as a last ditch effort, and it worked! I had tried other cables prior to opening a support request, but maybe they were all faulty? Those cables work with other devices, just not this controller. Very strange; but I now have a working controller again!#
