Your Game pad's cable could be damaged, I had this happen to one of my game pads and my friend also had it happen to his, the 4 usb wires inside the cord may break if you wrap the cord too tightly around the unit. When you try to plug it in, either the game pad can't power up (power wires broken), or the data transmission has errors (data wires broken). If you are absolutely sure that this is the problem, take the controller apart and de-solder the existing wires (REMEMBER WHERE EACH ONE GOES!!!), then cut the wire a little past where the cord enters the controller, strip the wires, and solder them back in.

Try bending the wire back and forth while it is plugged in, If it is detected and then goes off, and may come back on, this is a good sign that the cable is bad.
