    Need assistance - xbox 360 wireless RECEIVER - available driver not working anymore


    Hi!

    I bought a wireless xbox 360 Controller earlier this year to play on my PC, which runs Windows 10 Professional. I then figured out I needed to plug in a usb port a xbox 360 wireless receiver to make it work.

    So I got one, and followed the instructions in this well detailed video to install the necessary driver :

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JL75xVfY3c&ab_channel=BenjaminWheeler

    After finding the right driver in the list, it worked like a charm. BUT that was back when I first got it.

    These last weeks and again today I tried to plug in my receiver and connect my controller, yet they didn't seem to find each other.

    So I went back to the videos and its instructions and tried to install the driver as the device registered as unknown:

    Step 1: In device manager, right-click on unknown device, update driver.

    Step 2: Browse my computer for driver software.

    Step 3: Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.

    Step 4: Select xbox360 peripherals.

    Step 5: Choose between the different drivers available named "xbox360 wireless receiver for windows"

    Step 6: Next -> Install.

    I got the choice between two drivers for wireless receiver:

    "Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows" and "Récepteur Xbox 360 sans fil pour Windows" which is obviously the french equivalent.

    Whichever I chose didn't work, as the device is still marked as unkown...

    In the video there are a few differences with my case:

    -Most of the information are in french on my PC but that shouldn't matter.

    -The version of the drivers are visible yet not on mine

    -I only got two drivers available.

    So my questions are:

    Where can I download additional drivers? I figured I might be just lacking the right one.

    Can you help me make it work if it's something else?

    I am open to suggestions, as two devices bought just to not be able to play with it seems a bit harsh to me...

    Voil !

    Thanks in advance for any answers!

    :)

    Wireless Xbox 360 controller not connecting on latest build

    first of all I apologize for my English, but as written by "ParticleTesting"

    after the last "insider preview" build the "xbox 360 wireless receiver"

    does not work anymore it no longer loads the drivers as per the procedure I turn to you "ParticleTesting"

    you can to confirm that the "xbox 360 wireless receiver" device responds to the following HARDWARE ID?
    USB \ VID_045E & PID_0291 & REV_0107
    USB \ VID_045E&PID_0291
    Is a future fix possible for this problem?
    Thanks
    I confirm the driver version written by the "ParticleTesting" user (version 10.0.18980.1)
    for any updates I remain available on this discussion thanks

    xbox 360 Wireless Adapter device driver for windows 10

    i found this on another thread.... please try the following:

    For a wireless adapter for your Xbox 360 controller, look under your device manager.

    Then look under unknown peripherals or something that is unknown.

    Click update driver / browse computer for driver software.

    Select let me pick a list of available drivers.

    Find Xbox 360 wireless receiver for windows (newest version).

    That should get your controller to connect to the wireless adapter.

    Regards

    360 play and charge kit on PC/Windows RT

    There is no controller driver to download for Windows 8 because the driver is already installed as part of the Operating System. This applies to both the Desktop version of Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 8/8.1RT for Windows Surface Tablets.

    If you have a wired Xbox 360 controller, just plug it in, it will work straight away. For wireless controllers you still need a wireless gaming receiver. And yes, the receiver does work with Windows 8RT.

    Gaming Receiver doesen't work (HEELP)

    Windows has most of the drivers for Xbox controllers and wireless receivers already, but sometimes you need to give it a bit of help.

    Try this method: Open your device manager and double click on the receiver with the yellow mark on it. Then select the Driver tab and click on "Update driver". Next, select "Browse my computer for driver software" and then "Let me pick from a list of device
    drivers on my computer". Then scroll all the way to the bottom and look for "Xbox 360 Peripherals". Select that and then choose "Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows".

    Install that and you should be good to go.
