  1. Unable to use XBox 360 wireless controller with XBox Games Pass for Win10. Got any ideas?


    Alrighty. I'm trying to play games on the Windows 10 version of the XBox Games Pass with an XBox 360 wireless controller. I'm able to use the controller on other game services (example: Steam, UPlay, Origin, etc) but Xbox Games Pass doesn't even see the
    controller.

    It should be noted that I'm using a third-party receiver for the controller. Something like this one:

    https://www.amazon.com/Generic-Wire...&sprefix=xbox+360+wireless+con,aps,165&sr=8-5

    This is NOT a plug and play receiver. I had to set up the drivers for controller to make it work, but it DOES work on other games as an Xbox 360 controller is meant to operate.

    What can I do to make this work with XBox Games Pass games? Thanks in advance.

    :)

    Sorry to hear it. It may be the receiver that's causing the issue then. Unfortunately Microsoft/Xbox does not support 3rd party hardware as it could cause issues like this.

    I would suggest trying to connect the controller via an Xbox adapter for Windows. Otherwise you may need to try either connecting via USB or use an Xbox One controller.

    Xbox One connected to Win 10 pc, but streaming (games) does not work

    I noticed that I was unable to play clips in Smartglass. I tried to install the Media Feature Pack, but I was unable to. I searched the internet and saw that I had to update Win10 first. After updating I installed the Media Feature Pack succesfully and I
    was able to stream. Next project will be connecting XBox 360 controller via wireless receiver on my pc and play XBox One games with it.

    Connecting my Xbox 360 controller to Windows 8 laptop.

    For wireless Xbox 360 controllers, you cannot use the charging cable to connect to a PC (it only transfers power, not data). To use the controller with a PC, you will either need an "Xbox 360 controller for Windows" (non-detachable cable) or use your existing
    wireless controller with the wireless gaming receiver for Windows.

    This is the wireless adapter you could use:

    Xbox360 controller won't connect to pc

    I've got an authentic wireless controller and I'm using the corded adapter.
    Hi,

    Wireless Xbox 360 controllers are always wireless. You can't make them wired with the Play and Charge adaptor. The Play and Charge only charges the battery or powers the controller if no battery is present, it doesn't send data, hence the reason for all the lights flashing and no connection.

    The only way to use a Xbox 360 wireless controller on PC is buy a Xbox 360 gaming receiver and it must be the '360 receiver' as the Xbox One version is compatible with the old Xbox 360 controllers. With the receiver present you can sync the controller via wireless to the PC.
