    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.

    :)

    Hi there,

    in order to connect a wireless Xbox 360 controller to a PC you will require a wireless receiver, the 360 controllers do not support bluetooth.
    Please see this link for the exact steps on how to use a 360 controller and wireless receiver on a PC:

    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.

    Xbox360 Controller USB Incompatibility with PC

    The play and charge cord for the Xbox 360 is only used for powering the controller and charging the included battery. It does not transfer data.

    If your 360 controller is the wireless model, you will have to get a USB Xbox 360 wireless receiver for the PC. This is what actually connects your controller to the PC.
