    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:

    Let us know if you have any questions.

    This does not help my problem, the receiver works fine (at least id assume considering it has the green light and my controller supposedly connects to it) and the page linked only helps if the receiver is to fail, my laptop is the one missing a step. when
    i plugged it in it never gave any hint to starting a driver download nor did it actually do anything.

    Hello Trithinity,

    Thank you for keeping us updated. We recommend making sure
    Windows 10 is up to date
    while having the Xbox 360 wireless gaming receiver plugged in to the laptop. Be sure to let us know the results!

    after multiple talks with Microsoft support, various searching and questionable tactics i the previous drivers and used it as the main driver. now it works fine with no issues. this site is the location for the driver download and i hope this can help others
    if they may have the same problems. thank you everyone who tried to help.

    Win 10 xbox receiver

    Hi robertcawrey,

    Thanks for your post! To use an Xbox 360 controller on a Windows PC, you must use the

    Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver
    . Since the Xbox 360 controller and Xbox One controller use different wireless technologies, the new receiver is not compatible with 360 controllers.

    I hope this helps.

    Xbox360 controller won't connect to pc

    I've got an authentic wireless controller and I'm using the corded adapter.
    Hi,

    Wireless Xbox 360 controllers are always wireless. You can't make them wired with the Play and Charge adaptor. The Play and Charge only charges the battery or powers the controller if no battery is present, it doesn't send data, hence the reason for all the lights flashing and no connection.

    The only way to use a Xbox 360 wireless controller on PC is buy a Xbox 360 gaming receiver and it must be the '360 receiver' as the Xbox One version is compatible with the old Xbox 360 controllers. With the receiver present you can sync the controller via wireless to the PC.
