my new laptop only has usb Type-C so i went out and bought a cable that’s Type-C to usb Type-B i don’t want to plug it in and mess up something… will my controller work okay with this new type-C stuff ?
It should if the cable is legit. Early on there was a rash of bad, poorly wired or even miswired USB C cables. More information here: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/buy-usb-c-cable-wont-destroy-devices/
TLDR: Don’t buy a cheap, no-name cable. Stick with brand names and you should be fine.
If your new laptop is a MacBook, this might be something you could really use:
Monoprice as great USB accessories. C to B cables for 75¢. and they work great. got a 5amp C to C to charge my MBP super fast.
