    In order to answer this, I'll need to know more. What are you using to connect the controller to the Computer? What kind of computer do you have? and what operating system are you using on the computer? (Windows XP, Vista, ect.)

The wireless 360 controller wont work because you have to get the adapter to use a CORDED controller for your computer.

Wireless ones need batteries, so you should check that you have batteries in it.

SOURCE: XBOX 360 Wireless Controller PC Connection Problem

WARNING: try at your own risk!

I kind of fixed it. The problem appears to be with the USB controller - specifically, my mouse (a Razer Copperhead) and the XBOX 360 wireless receiver. A lot of work went into the solution, but I essentially ended up uninstalling and unplugging all of my USB devices (you can uninstall them using device manager in System Properties>>Hardware within Control Panel. Look for Universal Serial Bus and uninstall everything in that category). Reboot. Then, I first plugged in the device in question (my 360 receiver). Afterwards, I one by one plugged in each item until I found the one conflicting with the receiver (my mouse). After that, I uninstalled all devices again and next uninstalled the drivers for the conflicting device (my mouse in this case) and rebooted again. After this, I tried several times to uninstall and reinstall the mouse and various USB devices until finally it worked (sort of).

I call this a partial solution because now I appear to have the opposite problem. My mouse seems to be conflicting with another device (probably the 360 receiver). My mouse refresh rate is very choppy. The good news (for me) is that I can uninstall the USB controller for the mouse, reboot, and both the 360 controller and the mouse will work fine... that is until shut down. Then I have to uninstall the mouse controller and reboot again. Needless to say, I keep my computer on more than usual now.

I bought this system recently, and it had the same problem from the beginning.

I opened it, and found that the problem was the F1 Fuse that is cutting the current. You have to open it and bypass (soldering) the two legs of the F1 Fuse.

This is how to open it: http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/6896/openingoi6.jpg
and this is the circuit: http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/231/receivereb4.jpg

Hope this will help ;P

Try this:

hook them up using the play-and-charge usb cable

Then, disconnect the cable.

they should stay synchronized and worked fine after that.

Vista has an issue with Xbox 360 controllers, let alone Madcatz copies. I would recommend buying an official wired controller for use with Vista. Alternatively you can you a Wireless Gaming Receiver specially designed for using Wireless Controllers on Windows based PC's.

Xbox 360 Controller Won't Connect To My 360....


You have to connect the controller like this: Somewhere on the XBox 360 controller there is a button that looks like this, o))) or something like that. Push that button and look at the XBox 360 round lights, they start to flash, that means you have to push the same button on the console. The o))) button should be infront of the console.

Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, If the reciever is not lighting up then it is dead, you can try to take it to walmart and exchange it for a working one, they are usualy good at swapping out and if they give you a hard time buy a new one and return it with the old reciever instead of the new one. I hope this helps you.
