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.

When playing online on my xbox 360, my tritton 180 universal headset works, but ppl can't hear me talk. Help.


Hi,

Do you have the chat cable connected?

Is the mic turned off on the inline volume controller?

Is the Chat volume turned up on the inline volume controller?

Test the microphone on a PC by plugging in the USB into a PC and test if it works.

If it doesn't then you can ask for a spare microphone from TRITTON / Madcatz.

If the mic works on the PC then the problem might be with the chat cable which you can also ask from TRITTON or Madcatz.

Hope it helps...

I don't know how to connect the madcatz wireless controller to my xbox 360 please send me a step by step guide


first of all i think madcatz is a horrible type of remote but, step1.buy new batteries and put them in, step2. try to connect if not working move on: step3.try to connect but this time don't sit too far away (no more than 2m)if still not working, step4.press the button near the battery pack on your gaming console and remote control if still not working well then make sure to keep you xbox360 AWAY FROM A CHANNELER (a sort of amplifier thing) because i had mine upstairs, no channeller just the xbox and tv, worked perfect! but when its downstairs near the channeller IT WILL NOT CONNECT AT ALL! best of luck ~XXMAULGFXX

You'll have to download the driver for the Steering Wheel onto that laptop, you can find it on Madcatz's website, madcatz.com. Just download the .EXE file and start it up, it will automatically begin installing the software onto your laptop that will allow you to use the steering wheel with it.

The madcatz 360 pro controller for xbox 360 worked for my laptop at first then it just quit working. i left it alone for a day i even tried to charge it. how do i get it to work again?


Some of the MadCatz products are low quality, even though the prices are low and they look like a steal. I have had many different kinds of controllers and the ones which perform and last the longest are microsoft(360) or Sony(PS3).

Next time just pay the extra money to get a good product from a reliable company.

But, the contoller is probably just broken from a manufactoring problem or u could have dropped it funny, or the wires in the chord are partially torn.

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.
