  1. My wireless controller won't connect after countless efforts


    Please read everything before responding. I've tried using the sync button on my xbox but it does nothing. When I connect it via USB, it starts to work, but when I unplug the USB, the controller's Xbox button goes back to flashing and eventually turns off. I've also power cycled my Xbox dozens of times. Anyone know how to fix this problem? I spent a ton of money on this controller and battery pack and I don't get to use it. It's not the controller because this happens with every controller I try.

    :)

    Achievement: Drill Sergeant issue

    It's easy. The issue is the achievement not popping after countless plays with flawless effort.

    XBox Elite Series 2 unplugged from PC using USB won't auto connect to Bluetooth

    That doesnt make any sense. Why would you design a bluetooth protocol on your own OS that didnt auto connect?
    It should auto connect. My controller does.

    The only time my Xbox One controller won't auto connect is when I've connected it to my gaming PC via USB to charge the battery. After this I have to re-sync the controller. But I only have to do this for the duration of the battery charge. My controller
    auto syncs first time from Windows boot up.

    The issue is that the controller has two wireless protocols. It does not use Bluetooth with the wireless gaming receiver, or when connected to an Xbox console.

    If your controller won't auto connect then there must be something wrong with your Bluetooth hardware on your PC. Have you tried a Bluetooth dongle to test this out?

    Wireless Xbox 360 controller not connecting on latest build

    Well for one that's for the Xbox One, I'm talking about an Xbox 360 controller. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the driver countless times, it just won't connect. Something I've noticed is that when I press the sync button on the controller and then on
    the receiver, the controllers lights quickly stop flashing, indicating that it is in some way communicating with the receiver, but just won't connect. I've also tested both the controller and the receiver on a different computer and they are both perfectly
    functional meaning the blame definitely lies with Windows.
