    Xbox 360 controller not connected on PC


    I recently bought a xbox 360 controller.

    When I plugged it into my laptop, windows 10 noticed a new device. When I use game controller tester, the app found no controller.

    When I opened device manager, there was no unknown device like in the tutorials online.

    When I pressed the button between the start button and the back button on the controller, a red light appeared at number 1.

    When I opened game controllers, there was an USB Gamepad not xbox 360 controller. Then I open properties and tested the buttons, they all worked.

    I tried playing minesweeper with it but nothing happened.

    Can anyone tell me if this controller is real or fake? If it is real, please help me getting to play games.

    Thank you very much.

    :)

    Connecting a xbox360 controller to a pc thru xbox360

    No that is not possible to connect a controller to your PC through your console. You will need the Xbox 360 wireless USB receiver for windows or buy a pure wired USB xbox 360 controller (microsoft and 3rd party ones available and all will work).

    The play and charge USB cable for xbox 360 controllers does not make a wireless controller wired as it only transfers power and not data.

    You could buy an xbox one wireless controller that is newer and has bluetooth and connect it to your PC directly as seen on this page: :

    https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-on-windows/accessories/connect-xbox-one-controller-to-pc


    You can also use an xbox one wireless controller of any type (with or without bluetooth) with a Micro USB cable on a PC as well. THAT wire does make the xbox one wireless controller act as a wired controller while connected via Micro USB.

    xbox one controller on pc

    Hi

    I don't think it is possible to use the Xbox 360 wireless receiver with an Xbox One controller. If your PC has Bluetooth then it is possible to connect some Xbox One controllers to a PC this way.

    Hiya!

    Paul from the Xbox Forums Team here to assist with the issue, it looks like you're trying to get a Xbox 360 controller to work on your pc. How is this controller connecting to your PC? Is it a wired controller or wireless controller? If it's a wireless 360
    controller there is a wireless dongle that would be needed to have the controller work on PC. Please let us know.

    Happy Gaming!
