    Can’t update Xbox controller. Says it’s not connected using USB.


    I am trying to update my Xbox controller so I can use my headset. When I plug it in via USB I keep getting a message saying

    “There’s no controller connected using USB. Make sure the USB is firmly attached and try again”

    However; it is plugged in using a USB.

    Any tips on how to fix this issue? Thanks in advance.

    Controller will not turn on

    You say the update failed, but the batteries are good? I believe the controller can only be updated by USB wire. Try connecting the controller to the Xbox via USB, and then try updating it again.

    Xbox One controller broken by Windows Anniversary Update

    After the last W10 update (1703) my Xbox controller don't work.

    Primarily I use the controller with the Occulus Rift.

    Don´t work with wifi and don´t work connected to a USB port.

    Any thoughts? Thanks

    Xbox One S Controller Bluetooth randomly goes unresponsive

    Well if you don't wish to use the app you can also use your xbox one s to update the firmware of the controller. Plug it up to the xbox with a USB cable, go to setting and devices and accessories, select the controller and then select update.

    can i use the usb cable to play? can the controller be damaged?

    Hey Vincent,

    Yes, you can use the controller while connected to the console using usb cable. This won’t affect performance and won’t damage the controller. Using the controller wired of course means you don’t need to use batteries.

    You can also update the controller while connected through USB cable.

    Standard xbox one controllers require a micro USB cable. The elite series 2 and xbox adaptive controllers require USB type C cable.

    Instructions on connecting an xbox one controller to console:

    Any questions, I’m happy to help 😊

    My Xbox One Controller wont Update, i am currently at firmware version 2.3.2381.0 and want to update to 2.3.2385.0 and i cannot used my headset adapter. When i try to update it says no update available.

    I have two Xbox One Wireless Controllers with one that has a 3.5mm jack. The Controller with the jack updated to Firmware 2.3.2385.0 and didn't need to be connected to the Console by the USB Cable at all it just needed to be turned on. The other Xbox One
    Wireless Control that does not have the 3.5mm Jack has 2.3.2381.0 Firmware Version Update unable to Update to Firmware 2.3.2385.0 says that No Update is Available. I only need to connect this Controller to the Console with the USB Cable & also remove the Battery.
    I am unable to use this Controller in Party Chat and while i'm playing a game disconnects itself saying Controller Disconnected and the Controller Battery is fully Charged and still turned on. Please help me update my Wireless Controllers so that they both
    have the Firmware update 2.3.2385.0 and i can then use both Controllers again not just the one controller.
