  1. Xbox 360 controller not pairing with wireless adaptor for Windows 10.


    Hi,

    Apologies for the (partial) rant, but I'm more than a little frustrated that the only way to get support for genuine Microsoft products purchased directly from them, is to seek out help on the forums! :/

    I have an old Xbox 360 wireless receiver for windows, and a 360 controller that up until a Windows update towards the end of last year worked fine. Now my PC won't even acknowledge its insertion into a USB port - no green led, no chime from Windows, no 'unknown device' in DM, nothing.

    So I purchased a new Wireless adaptor for Windows 10, which installed drivers correctly, shows in DM, and pairs with my son's XB1 controller perfectly well. The 360 controller also pairs with an old 360 console perfectly well. I cannot get the 360 controller to pair with my PC using this adaptor. I have a horrible suspicion, that after bricking my old dongle with an update, 360/XB1 wireless controllers are not compatible, despite the accessory box stating its "for use with Xbox controllers".

    I've already spent £20 on a new adaptor, I sincerely hope I won't need to spend another £50 on a a controller.......

    Am I doing something wrong here?

    Thanks all for your help.

    :)

    Hello, how are you? My name is Mateus. I'm an Independent Advisor and I'll be glad to help you today.

    About your problem, I ask you to try the solution below on your computer.

    Connect your adapter to one of your computer's USB ports and then look for device manager on your PC, then look for the term other devices the adapter will be recognized as an unknown driver, click on it and then tap on update driver.

    If somebody has the Xbox One controller wireless adaptor for the PC, maybe they can check if that works on the Xbox One? It's a long shot, but hopefully somebody can try it out and get back to you. The adaptor has a pair button on it.

    How to pair an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for PC with the new XBOX Wireless Adaptor for Windows 10

    Hi,

    Sorry, I think there has been some major confusion here. The Wireless Gaming Adaptor for Windows 10, can only be used with a Xbox One controller. It
    can not be used for the Xbox 360 wireless controller. This because the 360 controller uses a different wireless protocol.

    Microsoft used to make the Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming receiver, but it was discontinued many years ago. You can buy third party unofficial ones from sites such as eBay quite cheaply though.

    Note that if you choose to buy an Xbox One controller instead, the latest Xbox One controllers now fully support Bluetooth for wireless connectivity.

    speed wheel for xbox 360

    hi I bought a second hand speed wheel for o xbox 360 and it did not come with the disc to load it can I pair it with out the software download it
    What model of the steering wheel are you trying to sync up with a xbox 360?.

    Are You BLIND..?

    The user CLEARLY wrote it's a (Microsoft product the XBOX 360 Wireless) SPEED WHEEL. .

    As far as I know that is the ONLY 'Speed Wheel' for XBOX 360) I ever heard about..

    And I am ALSO angry with MUchoCost (MS) for NOT making the Windows 10 driver for this WIRELESS controller (Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel) compatible like they do for the MS XBOX 360 original wireless controllers, that connect to Windows 10 via the EXCATLY
    SAME WIRELESS ADAPTER for PC, which makes NO SENSE..
