Instead of wasting like 30 mins trying to do this. I was wondering if its possible to use the controller that came with my 360 and plug it into the PC (using a usb cable) then downloading and installing the software for free on windows to use the 360 controller on my computer.
Did anyone try this? Or do i have to buy the 360 controller for windows for this to work?
That doesn't work. It only charges the battery. Nothing else. You'll have to get the wireless hub thing or just get a wired controller.
This man speaks the truth. I just recently went through all this. My Xbox brand wireless controller plugged up with its USB charger wouldn't work after all kinds of tinkering. I have a wired Madcatz that worked perfectly though, with no extra drivers.
Looks like I was incorrect then, i'm guessing my PC here at work has more drivers than I expected with the xbox development kit installed because it works with no problems for me with the regular charging dongle.
