Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
The power went out for a brief second due to a storm (I was playing Need For Speed: Most Wanted - in the middle of a race). I turned the xbox360 back on, but it no longer recognized my 4 wireless controllers or the HD-DVD player plugged in the rear USB port. It did recognize my DOA4-wired USB controller in front and the HD-DVD player in the front USB slot. I am also able to turn on the 360 using the wireless controllers, but they never sync (even when I push the sync buttons on both - they both rotate then flash all 4 and then the 360 stops searching). I figured I'd have to return it (it's one of the originals - almost 2 years old, never had a problem!) to best buy (paid for extra warranty), but it also doesn't recognize my memory card in the front memory slot. Really wanted to save my player info. Any advice? Greatly appreciated! "Sir Kadorus"
I had the same problem started yesterday. I stumbled accross this thread. This situation is not an issue with the controllers it is with the console. The solution that worked for me is turning the xbox on. Leaning it forward unplugging the power cable from the back while the console was running and then plugging back in and booting up. Everything working fine now. My bosses console had this similar issue too; we fixed it a similar way by doing the power loss reset, and then a couple days later it red ringed on him.

Whats happening with your joypads happened to me a couple times i found that if you switch the batterys around from pad to pad and trying the sync it eveytime you swap should work eventually
