    Weird troubleshooting with Windows 10 and Xbox Series S controller (via USB)


    I've been trying to connect my Xbox Series S controller on PC but its not working properly, for some reason only both triggers (RT and LT) and sticks (LSB and RSB) aren't working, while bumpers (LB and RB), D-pad, XYBA etc are all working. I've tried other USB-C cables, USB connectors in PC, reinstalling controller drivers on PC etc etc but nothing works. Pretty sure the controller works fine because I can use it with the same USB-C cables on my Xbox. Any ideas on why this is not working/what steps am I skipping?

    :)

    Xbox Series Wireless Controller issues on PC

    Hello,

    Yeah there is clearly a fault here. My Series S controller connects fine via USB C cable but when connected via Bluetooth it's just detected as a generic direct input controller rather than an Xinput Xbox controller.

    You would have thought the Windows 10 team would have created a driver for the controller to work correctly over BT? My Xbox One controller still works fine and works on PC and my Series S.

    It least we all have the same problem so it's a driver/device issue at the moment.

    Connecting Joystick Logitech Extreme 3D Pro

    Hello, thank you for your repeat?

    It doesn't make sense for me to get the Adaptive Controller to use my Logitech Extreme 3D joystick. Why not just use it on the XBox Series S console via one of the USB inputs??

    Let me try another plan……….

    Is it possible to connect the „XBox Series s“ console with a windows 10 PC using USB?

    In this case I could use my Joystick as usual and had the voice from the PC Speaker!

    Adapter Xbox 360 for PC and new controller.

    Hi,

    I’m Killing Skids

    The Answer Is Yes as Long As it has Bluetooth or wireless connection
    Hi,

    That's not quite right. Apologies for quoting you.

    The Xbox 360 controller uses a proprietary wireless technology, it's not Bluetooth and the old adaptors won't work with a modern controller like the Xbox One or Series X|S controllers.

    Unlike Xbox 360 wireless controllers, Xbox One and Series controllers can also be connected via USB cable. Old Xbox One controllers use Micro USB, Series Controllers are USB C.

    To use an Xbox One/ Series controller via wireless on a PC and get basic functionality, all you need to do is connect the controller via Bluetooth. If your PC doesn't have Bluetooth then you'll need to buy a Bluetooth USB dongle, they're very cheap, less than $10. I'm from the UK and I connect my Series X controller to my PC via BT dongle I purchased from Amazon for about £5.

    For extra wireless features you'll need the Xbox One Wireless Adaptor for Windows 10. Unfortunately, the official Microsoft branded adaptors are now quite rare.

    Accessory compatibility with new Wireless Bluetooth Controller on Windows 10

    Hey there MattheadPlus!

    If you're connecting your controller via Bluetooth then you wouldn't be able use a headset through your Xbox One controller. For more information on what's support via Bluetooth check out this

    . If you haven't already, give a direct wired USB connection a try to see if you're able to use your headset again.
