  1. Xbox 360 wired controller not connecting to Windows 10


    Hello. I need some help on this issue. I have been trying to connect my controller to my Inspiron ONE2330 (which is a Windows 10 Home desktop, 64-bit, powered by DELL) and is not working.

    I have read the support pages from Microsoft and Xbox and everything I did came with no luck. It says that all I have to do is plug it in, but just doing that is not helping me at all. When I plug it in, I do hear the sound for when something is plugged
    into the USB ports, however, nothing is happening.

    I have checked the Device Manager and saw "Xbox 360 Wireless Controller via Play & Charge Kit" under Xbox 360 Peripherals. I believe that all the drivers that I need are installed (xusb22.inf) but when I open the game I want the controller to work in
    (the game in question: A Hat in Time), it would not input the buttons I pressed.

    Yes, I have deleted and reinstalled the controller from my PC repeatedly but still no luck. I have also checked from the joy.cpl panel and my controller does not even show up. Is there a way I can fix this?

    :)

    Xbox 360 controller to windows store games Wont work

    Hey there!

    Are you trying to connect a wireless Xbox 360 controller to your Windows 10 PC or is it a wired controller? If it's a wired one, here are the steps to

    calibrate your controller with your Windows PC.
    You'll want to follow those steps and be sure that everything is set up correctly and try again.

    Keep us posted! :)

    Not sure if this is the correct place!!

    From what I've read, you are trying to connect your Xbox 360 controller to windows 10?

    Here are the steps for that for connecting it:

    1. Plug the Xbox 360 wired controller into any USB 2.0 or 3.0 port on the computer.

    2. Windows 10 will automatically install drivers for your controller. Once you see the pop-up notification that the drivers have been installed, you can use your controller.

    3. Open a game or the Xbox app and test your controller by pressing a button, pulling a trigger, or moving a stick on the controller.

    Notes:

    • If your Xbox 360 wired controller is not detected by your PC, try plugging it into a different USB port, and then test it again.
    • If your controller still does not work, check that Windows 10 is fully updated. Install any updates and then try again.
    • Refer to your game documentation for information about how to configure the Xbox 360 controller for a specific game.
    • Drivers for Xbox controllers are included with Windows 10, so you won't have to download or install software othr than Windows 10 updates.

    Trying to hook up xbox 360 controller to pc for pc games

    Hello im tring to hook up my xbox 360 controller with charge cord....
    H,

    That's your problem, right there. Unfortunately, if you connect your wireless Xbox 360 controller with a charging cable, all your doing is charging the controller.

    The 360 wireless controller can't be turned into a wired controller with the charging cable as neither the controller or the wire were designed to send data this way.

    You either need 360 wired controller or an Xbox One controller. Xbox One controllers can use wired or wireless, but wireless is only supported via Windows 10.

    Hope that helps.
