    Xbox 360 controller connection problem to wireless PC receiver


    I replaced my failing xbox 360 controller I use to play games on PC, the new controller will not connect to the receiver, but the old controller that is not working properly still will connect. I have taken the batteries out of
    the old broken controller so it won't interfere, followed all support suggestions on microsoft.com, and I tried all the possible different driver installations, and it still does not connect to the receiver.

    :)

    Microsoft Wireless Desktop Receiver 3.1 (Model: 1028) to use with XBOX 360 wireless controller

    Heya LORD LWAJDI!

    That particular receiver is for use with Microsoft Wireless Keyboard and Mice. I'm afraid you wouldn't be able to connect an Xbox 360 Wireless controller with it. In order to connect a wireless controller you would need to purchase the Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver
    for PC.

    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:

    Connecting a xbox360 controller to a pc thru xbox360

    Hi, you need the USB receiver to connect a wireless Xbox 360 controller to your PC. But since the wireless receiver has been discontinued, the only option is to purchase a controller that can connect via Bluetooth or with a wire
    instead.
