Re: problem

On the controller, are you using an off brand rechargeable battery? I work at a game store and we have noticed that some Nyko batteries get returned because when they are fully charged, and the controller is turned on, they system will not recognize the controller. And so far the only thing we have figured out is to go for a Microsoft brand. Hope that helps a little.

Xbox wireless controller won't work . Batteries are new. The light just flashes. The console doesnt recognize controller

There is a small round button located on the Xbox next to the second memory card slot "slot B" push that to search for the controller. At the the same time there is a small round button located at the top of the controller next to the cord's slot in the middle, push this as well. Both the Xbox and controller should start flashing in a circle then they will start blinking together indicating they are linked. If you have a cord for the controller you can simply plug in the cord and it will automatically link, eliminating the steps above.

Wireless controller flashing green light but wont detect xbox360?

Have you tried resyncing your xbox and controllers? On the controller, press the little circle button on the top of the controller, between the bumpers. On the 360, there's a small circle button, about half inch wide, next to the memory card ports. Press that as well.

Controller/Memory Card

my recommendation is to return the unit, but there is a popular way that does in fact work. I tried it and my xbox lasted 4 week longer. Basically, wrap it in 2 towels, turn it on and leave it for 30 mins, come back , unwrap and reboot xbox.

Unusual situation - won't recognize rear USB, wireless controllers, or memory card

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.
