Xbox 360 Vontroller makes my audio fuzzy

I have an onboard soundcard and it works great. As long as I don't plug in the xbox controller.

When I plug it in, my audio sound has an anoying noize on it. This stays like that until i restart my computer with the controller unplugged.
I've tried to download new audio drivers and other xbox controller drivers but this did not work. 

I hope you can give me a quick solution 'cause I've send already mails to xbox support and microsoft who just send me links to eachother.

Thanks anyway

Re: 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.

Learn how to connect a wireless or wired controller to your Xbox 360 console.
Connect a wireless Xbox controller
  1. Turn on your console.
  2. Press and hold the Guide button on the controller until the controller turns on.
  1. Press and release the connect button on the console.

  1. Within 20 seconds, press and release the connect button on the controller.
  1. When the lights surrounding the power button on the console stop flashing, the controller is connected.
On the Xbox 360 S console, each connected controller is assigned to one of four positions. Each position corresponds to a lighted section around the console power button and the controller Guide button. On the 360 E console, a solid green light on the front of the console indicates that the controller is connected. To determine the player position associated with your accessory, look at the ring of light that surrounds the Guide button on the controller.

You can also use the Xbox 360 Play & Charge Kit or the Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kit to power the controller. Learn more about Xbox controllers and chargers.
To connect additional controllers, follow these same steps again. You can connect up to four controllers to the console. Each connected controller is assigned a position that corresponds with the lighted sections that appear around the console's power button and around the Guide button located in the middle of each controller.
  • To disconnect a wireless controller, press and hold the Guide button for three seconds, and then choose to turn the controller off.
  • When you turn off the console, the controller will reconnect the next time you turn on the console.
  • The controller can be connected to only one console at a time. You can connect the controller to a different console, but the connection to the previously connected console will be lost.

Wireless controller troubleshooting
If your wireless controller disconnects or cannot connect to your console, see Xbox 360 Wireless Controller disconnects or can't connect.
If your wireless controller does not turn on or loses power, try the following solutions:
Solution 1: Replace the batteries
Insert a new set of AA alkaline batteries into the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, and then try to turn it on.
Solution 2: Try a different battery pack
If you have another Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, take the battery pack off that controller and attach it to your controller. Then try to turn your controller on.
If your controller works with the different battery pack, your original battery pack might be defective. If your controller is under warranty, you can order a replacement battery pack from Xbox Support . See the Assistance section at the bottom of this page for more information.
If your controller is out of warranty, you can buy a new battery pack from a retail store.
Solution 3: Try a rechargeable battery packIf you or a friend has an Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack, attach that battery pack to your controller and try to use your controller. If your controller works with the rechargeable battery pack attached, you can buy a new battery pack from a retail store or order a replacement battery pack from Xbox Support. See the Assistance section at the bottom of this page for more information.

Xbox 360 wired control pad won't work

Possible fix, make sure your contacts are clean, and your cable is not damaged. Obviously the 5v lines are connecting, but no data is getting through. I reccomend using a q-tip to get any grime off, but you may need rubbing alchohol (90% reccomended because it dries cleaner). Clean off the connections on the xbox and the controller. If it still doesnt work, list any extras you have plugged into your controller, and the estimated time you bought the controller.

If all else fails, I've just got a great deal on a MadCatz xbox 360 controller ($25) and its fully functional, minus the controller faceplates if thats your cup-o-tea.

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 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.

Xbox 360 wireless controller

You must sync the 360 with your controller. Turn on your 360 and your controller. Push the little black button on the front of your console, then hold the little tiny button on the top of your controller for a few seconds. This should sync them.
