Have recently purchased an xbox and the controller has connected to it once for about 10mins, i press the connect button on the xbox wait til the lights goes round and then press the controller connection...


The easiest way to connect your new conroller to your xbox is to plug it into the usb port in the front. This will identify that controller from then on to that Xbox 360 when you use it wireless. (or until you connect it to a different Xbox 360).

You might not be pushing the correct button when trying to sync your controller with the Xbox 30. On the controller you have the main guide button but the button you want is the one on top of the controller to the left of the port were you plug in your charge and play cord. It is small an of the same color as the controller. You need to push it along with the connect button on the Xbox for them to sync.

If you are still having issues then you might have weak batteries. Make sure your batteries are charged and ready to go. Try using AA batteries if you can and see if that solves your issue?

Also, some devices in your house can cause interference with your controllers if they are operating on the same frequency. (i.e. wireless phones, mocrowaves...etc.) Make sure your xbox is away from locations with conflicting frequencies. Metal shelves can also cause havoc on wireless controllers. Make sure your xbox is free of clutter and has breathing room.

Hope this helps.

Xbox 360 Controller and USB Headset Conflict


Go to control panel, sound and audio, hardware, USB devices, and disable it. The computer thinks the XBox controller is an audio device and is giving it priority.

PC sound problem when using xbox360 controllers


I should have fished around a bit more before posting that I have the same problem.

Go into your control panel
Double Click the "Sounds and Audio Devices"
Select the "Audio" tab
It will show that your "Sound Playback" and "Sound Recording" default device is set to "Headset (XBOX 360 For Windows)" in the drop down menu
In that same drop down select "Sigma Tel Audio" or what ever your regular default is
Click the check box at the bottom left of the window that states, "Use only default devices"
Then click apply and viola you should be able to use your 360 controller with your pc sound

I'm only guessing here, but if you want to use the 360 headset you may have to change these settings again.

Xbox 360 controller for windows


I also registered to post the solution. This is actually a very easy fix.

Goto > Start > Control Panel
Open > Sounds and Audio Devices
Goto > "Audio" Tab
Change > "Default Device" back to your sound card rather than the x-box controller.
Press > "OK"

When you plug in the x-box controller it makes itself the default audio playback because it has a headphone jack on it.

Xbox 360 Vontroller makes my audio fuzzy


same problem here. searching for a solution to this problem is like running around in circles. I'm getting to the point where I'm about to go out and buy a decent sound card and hope it works. If it doesn't I'm going to return this POS and go back to good old Logitech equipment.

Xbox 360 Controller for Windows causes fuzzy sound


Found a solution! Came here to post it, since I could not find the solution ANYWHERE on the internet...


Using an Xbox 360 controller or any other Xbox 360 peripheral with 95% of USB sound cards or headsets will produce HORRIBLE sound input and output. It sounds like a robot has swallowed and spat back out the waveforms. Even if the 360 peripheral is removed any USB audio devices plugged in after the fact will still sound corrupted until a fresh reboot without the 360 peripheral plugged in.



I believe that the problem is somehow linked to the "generic root hub" driver, which hasn't been updated since 2001, thanks M$.


The solution (pick one of 3):
As long as the 360 peripheral is on it's own internal virtual root hub it will not interfere with other devices. You can force it to use another root hub by doing ONE of the following:
1) Fill up your usb ports with other devices till it shifts to using a secondary root hub, then plug in the 360 peripheral. This could take up to 10 USB things, depending on your motherboard and the maximum devices on each root hub.
2) Use an extra internal PCI-USB card for the 360 peripheral.
3) Use an extra external USB hub for the 360 peripheral.



NOTE: A reboot is usually required to clear up the driver's confusion.

Fuzzy sound when plugged in


The Problem is C-media doesn't have proper driver support. It seems to be the on board sound card. The only real fix is to get a different sound card. Hopefully c-media will eventuall address the problem in a new driver.
