Ahh, okay. Sorry, I figured you might have made the mistake I made and thought the play and charge kit would work. (Why they don't include data with that cable... what an oversight)

Your best bet would be to uninstall the drivers and try again.

in device manager do you get a question mark?
post #6 of 10

Are the drivers not working or the game's support of the controller? 

 

Go to the game controller menu. start>control panel>Devices and printer>right click on xbox controller>game pad settings and make sure that the controller is recognized.

I have been gaming with my xbox 360 wireless controllers for over 2 years now. My 1 usb adapter allows me to sync up to 4 wireless controllers at a given time. I usually play 2 player games with friends on the hdtv in the living room although I have my pc in my bedroom. I just switch between Hdmi cables. I have one thats 150ft going into the living room and the other once hooked up to my tv in my bedroom. Works great with my wireless keyboard mouse config.

Back to your question:
Your problem sounds driver related.
1). Uninstall your existing 360 drivers for your microsoft adapter.
2). Disconnect Usb cord and plug it back into your pc. If you have the cd or website for your device use those. Worse comes to worse windows will try to configure it for you.
3) Once configured you will have a solid light on the adapter.
4) Hold down the button on the adapter so it flashes.
5) Hold down the sync button on the top of the wireless xbox 360 remote so that the green light spins.
6) Press A on the 360 controller one time.
7) You will hear windows make a sound once its synced.
8) Run your favorite games and enjoy
