Okay, so I've tried for a while now to connect my xbox controller to my pc, idk if im doing something wrong or what but hey.

so I'm trying to connect it with a normal android phone charger, I dont have a bluetooth adapter, just been trying to connect it with usb.

I plug it all in etc etc, turn the controller on and all i get is it flashing like its trying to pick up a console, when i plug in the charger the controller vibrates but my pc doesnt seem to detectt it, its the same with my phone it doesnt pick my phone up either, so maybe i can kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

Does anyone know how to get it working? I will literally kiss you

Search "USB Game Controller" on your PC and it brings up a menu to set it up, if that does not work I would see if you can update your USB driver or the controller firmware?

Delete it from the devices and try brand new install. After that, If When you plug it in. Does it scan for the device to try and install it?

I'd say it's probably the wire then. Sometimes the wire will just charge and not actually pick up whatever you've plugged in. Do you have any more to test out?
