    my xbox series x controller sudddenly stopped connecting to pc


    so i have been using my xbox series x controller with my pc fine for about a few months with no problems over Bluetooth until one day i was starting up a new game shadow of the tomb raider , the controller worked fine for the menu screen and then it disconnected . i tried turning it off and on again so i can reconnect but it didn't work . i left the game came back and removed the device from the Bluetooth list and tried pairing it again , it did pair but it didn't recognize it as a controller , i checked if i had any updates to do on both controller and pc but there was none . i don't understand it . it works fine over usb but that's it .

    :)

    Xbox one S serie controller and xbox one V3 wireless PC dongle

    Hi,

    The Series S and X controllers work on same devices the earlier controller can connect to. This includes:

    Xbox One Game receiver for Windows 10

    Bluetooth (PC, Android, iOS)

    Xbox One, One S, X and Series X/S.

    Adaptador Windows para controle Xbox Series S/X

    Hello,

    There isn't a specific adaptor for the Series X/S controllers for PC. The current adaptor works just fine with these newer controllers, however it is now in very short supply. There are third party ones available that do the same thing.

    The Xbox 360 wireless controllers use a different WIFI protocol, they need their own Xbox 360 wireless Gaming Receiver.

    Xbox One and Series X/S controllers can be connected to PC via Bluetooth, but headsets will only work with the Xbox One adaptor (or a third party version), they won't work when the controller is connected via BT

    Adapter Xbox 360 for PC and new controller.

    Hi,

    I’m Killing Skids

    The Answer Is Yes as Long As it has Bluetooth or wireless connection
    Hi,

    That's not quite right. Apologies for quoting you.

    The Xbox 360 controller uses a proprietary wireless technology, it's not Bluetooth and the old adaptors won't work with a modern controller like the Xbox One or Series X|S controllers.

    Unlike Xbox 360 wireless controllers, Xbox One and Series controllers can also be connected via USB cable. Old Xbox One controllers use Micro USB, Series Controllers are USB C.

    To use an Xbox One/ Series controller via wireless on a PC and get basic functionality, all you need to do is connect the controller via Bluetooth. If your PC doesn't have Bluetooth then you'll need to buy a Bluetooth USB dongle, they're very cheap, less than $10. I'm from the UK and I connect my Series X controller to my PC via BT dongle I purchased from Amazon for about £5.

    For extra wireless features you'll need the Xbox One Wireless Adaptor for Windows 10. Unfortunately, the official Microsoft branded adaptors are now quite rare.

    Will the Xbox Wireless PC Adapters work for the next gen controllers?

    Hi,

    I can't see why not. After all, the Series X and S console support Xbox One controllers. That shows the way these new controllers connect hasn't changed. They should work on PC with the Wireless Adaptor.
