Hi all,

My Gamepad I got from Xerox 2 years ago died so I was looking at controller I could use.
I found out that you can use the Switch Pro Controller on steam which I wish I knew ages ago but oh well.
I'm connecting it to my PC via the USB C on the controller to the USB C port on my x370 MSI board using a 2 meter usb c to usb c cable from Anker.
The light shows that it is charging but nothing can be found using steams controller configuration tool or in windows device manager so I assume it's only charging?
I'm running Steams Beta build.
I've also tried using multiple USB 3/3.1 type A to C cables and the charging light wont even show with those.

Anyone have experience with this? Could it be that I need a specific Nintendo type c cable?
Note: I don't want to goto bluetooth for latency reasons.

Do you hear "the noise" when you connect the USB cable to the PC ? Like any USB when it connects it makes that sound of any new device connecting. If you are not hearing that i would suggest you try another USB port, preferably on the back of your case, not at the front....

I've using the type C port on the Rear I/O. Tried using multiple type A ports as well.
