Brook PS2 converter not detecting on PS2

Q: I just tried using the adapter on a PS2 with 3 different PS3 controllers and none of them are detected.

A: I had the EXACT same problem when I picked up two of those converters for my PS2 Slim. I had the luck of getting a prompt response from Huang Tim at Brook. In the case of the Slim and other PS2 models, they need to have the converters powered. I was pretty shocked by this, but sure enough, if you use a micro USB (same one you use to charge a PS4 controller) in the USB slots on the front of the PS2 and connect the cable to the converter and switch the converter to XID mode, it works.

    suggested method with XID mode and using the additional cable for power I can't get any of my controllers to register. The light does turn on but no controller will sync to the adapter. Are these converters 100% supported only on PS2 fat models? :/
