    Xbox 360 PC wireless gaming receiver not recognized by windows 10


    I have a wireless gaming receiver for windows and when I connect it to my computer it scans for drivers but doesn't recognize the device. This means that it doesn't download the necessary drivers for me to use it. How can I fix this so I can use the device.

    I have the driver downloaded, But, I can't link the driver to the "Unknown Device" (My Wireless controller receiver). All I can do to the device is remove it. My computer can tell me about it is that it's Unknow and that the driver is missing (Which it is
    not, as I said earlier).

    If you have any other knowledge or information about the subject and how to help, please respond to this Post.

    Thank you,

    xbox 360 wireless controller not appearing on device manager and not working...

    which wireless receiver are you using?

    The 360 controller needs a USB radio for the PC to use it and if that radio is not working then check if it is damaged. The radio is recognized by windows 10 fine, I have one made by Microsoft

    Can the X Box One Wireless Controller with Bluetooth also be used with the X Box One Wireless Adapter for Windows 10?

    Hi Beau,

    Thank you for coming to the Xbox forums, I'd be happy to answer that.

    The Xbox One Wireless controller with Bluetooth can be connected to a Windows 10 PC with a USB cable, Bluetooth, or with the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10, so yes, it can be connected via the adapter. The Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 is not
    compatible with an Xbox 360 controller and will need the Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows. I'll provide the support articles with this information:


    I hope this helps!

    Controller Xbox360 / PC / Windows 10 - Issues

    Hi Sidney N Paula,

    sorry to hear. First of all the 360 controller only works with USB-cable on Windows 10 computer. For the wireless mode you need a

    speciall wireless adapter and a extra driver
    . And second as far as I know, sorry some XBOX ONE GAMES do not recognize the 360 Controller.

    Hope this helps

    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:
