    how can I update driver for xbox 360 controller for windows 10

    Hi,

    There is no driver to download for the 360 controller on Windows 10, because the driver is already installed as part of the OS.

    There are two likely reasons why your controller isn't being detected. It's either because your controller isn't a true wired controller or you've plugged it into a USB 1 port.

    If your controller is wireless please note that you can not turn it into a wired controller with a Play & Charge. It will always be wireless and therefore will not be detected. To use a wireless controller on Windows you will need a gaming wireless receiver.
    Otherwise, you will need a 360 wired controller.

    Win 10 xbox receiver

    Hi robertcawrey,

    Thanks for your post! To use an Xbox 360 controller on a Windows PC, you must use the

    Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver
    . Since the Xbox 360 controller and Xbox One controller use different wireless technologies, the new receiver is not compatible with 360 controllers.

    I hope this helps.

    drivers

    Depending on which version of Windows you use depends on which drivers you need.

    Windows 7 you can find them here
    https://www.microsoft.com/accessories/en-gb/d/xbox-360-controller-for-windows


    Windows 8/10 Drivers are automatically installed when you plug the Xbox 360 wired controller into your PC.

    If you are trying to hook up a wireless controller, then you need a Xbox 360 wireless gaming receiver for windows

    If you are trying to connect the Xbox 360 controller to the PC with a play & charge kit, then that will not work, as the cable will only work on the PC to charge the controller's play & charge battery.

    Can the X Box One Wireless Controller with Bluetooth also be used with the X Box One Wireless Adapter for Windows 10?

    Hi Beau,

    Thank you for coming to the Xbox forums, I'd be happy to answer that.

    The Xbox One Wireless controller with Bluetooth can be connected to a Windows 10 PC with a USB cable, Bluetooth, or with the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10, so yes, it can be connected via the adapter. The Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 is not
    compatible with an Xbox 360 controller and will need the Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows. I'll provide the support articles with this information:


    I hope this helps!
