I have a couple of Trio Linker Plus converters which i bought specifically for use with my Dreamcast Arcade sticks, which worked great in windows XP Pro x86,
I've since been using Windows 7 RC x64 and I will be switching over to Windows 7 Home Premium x64 when it is released. So far, i've had no luck getting the Trio Linkers to work on Windows 7, when i plug it in, it detects a HID but does not show up on the gamepad control panel.
I've tried using the vista drivers and x64 XP drivers for it but they do not work...
can anyone offer a solution or suggestions? Perhaps HKems are working on a win 7 driver?
meanwhile, I've had to use a PS1>USB converter which seems to work fine...but i would love to get my DC arcade sticks working for SF4
Thanks for your reply, it is the first version (#0505) trio linker plus I have, which I have two of...
I have windows 7 home premium on preorder and I plan to upgrade my pc for that; the reason I'm eager to get the trio linker plus working is because it's currently the only converter i know of that works well with the Dreamcast Arcade sticks (which i use to play Street Fighter 4 on PC , I have other PS>USB converters but they do not map the arcade stick directions properly for some reason.
will hkems be working on a windows 7 x64 driver in the near future, or perhaps you could recommend another converter you know that will work with the dreamcast arcade stick...?

I'm posting here to say that I use a Trio Linker Plus too, and I was disappointed to see that it wasn't working in W7 x64. I'm looking forward to seeing 7 x64 support for the older model as well as the OP.

Hey all. I just sent a few emails to Melody yesterday about the #0603 Trio Linker Plus II, and only today noticed it's not x64 compatible, and you don't currently make the #0505 Trio Linker Plus. So the only x64 PS2 product you seem to have is the EMS USB2. I think.
This is the main reason I haven't just purchased one, as I really need x64 rumble support, and would like a Trio Linker Plus type device.
Are there any plans to re-produce the original #0505 product? It seems a lot more people like it as it has no problems with multiple button presses (so can be used with dance mats), and the drivers for it seem to be better. I don't know how many people really need to use three controllers at once, so #0603 doesn't offer much more over the #0505.
If you can make some more #0505, or can make an x64 driver for #0603 then I'd buy one right away
Hi, i wandered if the tio Linker II has any 64bit drivers coming out soon? i can get it to plug and play but am sorely missing the gui to bind the movements of my gamecube pad to keyboard keys and what not. Could you let me know if there is going to be any 64bit compatible software/drivers released for the Trio Linker II . Thanks alot!
I have an original trio linker plus and its amazing. I too am severely dissapointed that it will not work on Windows 7. I didn't even get it to work for Vista either. I purchased your product and I wish as a consumer we could get more support. Obviously there is a want for it.
It works on Windows 7 for some games just fine, but others it won't let me put in any input.
I have no intention on buying a Trio Linker Plus II. So please help the people that payed for your original product.

I agree that the #0505 should be upgraded for use on Windows 7. I am very disappointed that I cannot use my Dreamcast pads with my PC anymore and I have no intention on buying a new product (I cant possibly afford it right now). I have been very pleased with this product until I read this thread. I use the 32bit version of Win7 by the way.

I appreciate the info on the 32bit Win 7 diver but it doesnt work for me. When I install it and plugin my trio linker plus it does not show up in game controllers. Is there a special way to install the driver and have it recognized?
