I have had the DVD dongle in my gameport for a year, but it suddenly stopped working. I took the dongle out, and it works in the other 3 ports, but not in #4.
Controllers also do not work in #4.
I opened up the box and swapped the ports one and two, with three and four. Port four is still dead (i.e. it's not the connectors)

Anyone know how to resurrect a dead gameport???

I thought maybe as it was USB I could wire it to one of the other ports somehow and piggyback it?

BUY a new controller port set for 4.99 and if you have a Version 1.0 or 1.1 with a daughterboard that the controllers plug into.. buy a new Daughterboard, but honestly I think the $4.99 REPLACEMENT CONTROLLER PORT WILL DO THE TRICK for you.

I swapped the controller ports around, but it didn't help, (i.e. port 4 was still dead even when I swapped the 1&2 ports with 3&4) so I don't think its the ports themselves.
Where can I buy a daughterboard or ports from anyway?

Thanks!!

WWW>LLAMMA.com sells daughterboards.. if you Xbox dont have a daughter board and swapping ports didnt work i don't know what to tell you.. there might be a problem with the recepticle the ports plug into or the bus for the ports might be dead.. (but only worry about that if your Xbox dont have a daugher board).. IF it does try a new one first WWW>LLAMMA>COM

You knocked component L6 off the daughterboard. It is easy to do if you're not careful when pulling up the yellow front panel connector from the motherboard.

Replace or repair.
