    Can't use wireless Controller to play game, after using wired controller on console.


    I've been playing a lot of Dragon Age Inquisition lately. My buddy came over and we decided to play some Hale:MCC. I used my wireless and wired controllers while he was over. For some reason, Dragon Age is only recognizing the wired controller, even after
    disconnecting and resetting the console. Help! How do I fix this?

    :)

  2. Xbox One controller on Surface RT

    For the Xbox One controller to work on Windows RT there has to be a driver made for it. At the moment, I don't believe there is so you can't use an Xbox One controller.

    As for your Xbox 360 controller, it's wireless. It will remain wireless even if you use the play and charge. Unlike the Xbox One controller, the 360 wireless controller can't be made wired by using a play and charge. If you want to use an Xbox 360 controller
    on a Surface RT, it needs to be a wired one.

  3. Gears of War consoles freezes, has red power light when wired controller plugged in.

    @Ennileah, You should really read the WHOLE post before posting your thoughts.

    Just to make sure. It is a WIRED controller and not a wireless controller using a Play n' Charge kit.

    I think your Xbox is having a power failure when your controller is plugged in.

    My suggestings:

    1. Unplug the controller after you turn the console off and dont plug the controller in untill after the console is booted up

    2.Try another wired controller or Wireless controller

    Hi DyMist007,

    Sorry you're having issues with your controller. Can you expand on what you meant when you say resetting the console? Are you just talking about a power cycle, or are you speaking of a full reset?

    For the controller I would recommend doing the following. First, try to plug it in via USB cable. Doing this automatically performs a new sync on the wireless controller. If that doesn't work please see this link on

    how to pair a wireless controller
    .

    If you have a Kinect please see this link on automatically assigning a profile to a wireless controller.
