    XBOX 360 Controller not working on Windows 10


    I have a wired xbox 360 USB controller, I plug it in to my windows 10 machine (ive tried different USB ports) and it doesnt work in any games.

    I found that it was appearing as a USB input Device under Human Interface Devices in the device manager. I tried updating the drivers but that didnt help.

    My win 10 is fully up to date and other usb devices work fine in the same USB port.

    The controller lights up when plugged in.

    I'm feeling that windows is recognising it as a device but not an xbox 360 controller, but I really dont know what I should be expecting to see. Any help would be appreciated,

    Thanks

    :)

    Laptop not detecting xbox 360 wired controller

    Are you sure the Xbox 360 is a wired Xbox 360 controller, and not connected by a separate cable like the play and charge cable? If it is the play and charge cable, it will not work on Windows 10, as it only charges the batteries on a PC. If it is a actual
    wired controller, then Windows 10 should detect and then download the drivers if needed.

    Xbox 360 controller on Windows 10

    Xbox 360 controls do not have a compatibility with windows computers. it is better to use a cboc one control that has a bluetooth connection.
    Yes they do. Any controller that has that uses Xinput will work on Windows 10 that includes Xbox 360 controllers.
