    Perhaps that extra pin was never used to begin with? Not really sure, just try the new controller and see if it works.

    i just counted 9 pins on a official controller that came with my PS2 about 2 months ago. did the one you counted off come with 9 pins? maybe the new ones you buy seperately only have 8.

    I've opened a few controllers to repair them and they have different sized motors depending on what version ps2 they came with, maybe the extra pin was a feed for the motors and the new controllers may have smaller motors that use less power that can be taken from the same source as another low powered part of the controller, so the 9th pin is not needed? maybe...

    Thanks everyone for your help! but the truth is, not many games takes full advantage of DUALSHOCK 2 vibration functions right?... I don't feel much but except for games like FATAL FRAME 2.... that doesn't mean my controllers MOD is freaked out or something right?
