  2. Xbox One controller being recognized as a 360 Controller

    Hi Stephan,

    There are several reasons why your Xbox One controller is detected as an Xbox 360 controller by your PC. It is possible that the controller is not updated or if you previously used an Xbox 360 controller on the PC, it is still detecting its drivers instead
    of the Xbox One controller drivers. To properly isolate your concern, please clarify the following information:

    • Have you used an Xbox 360 controller on the same computer before?
    • Does the error message occur on all of the games that you play?
    • Have you tried to update the controller?
    • Are you using an Xbox One Elite controller?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you update the controller by following the steps on this

    link
    .

    • What is exactly happening when you tried to connect the controller?
    • Are there any error messages when you tried to connect the controller?
    • Have you tried connecting the controller using a USB cable to the PC?

    Xbox One controller being recognized as a 360 Controller

    Thank you for responding...

    -No I have not used A Xbox 360 controller.

    -When I enter a game, it says that the

    "Controller that you are currently using(Xbox 360 for Windows) is not supported. Some features may not be available". Only a game called Payday 2 doesn't flash up with a message similar to that.

    -I've downloaded the Xbox Accessories app and connected via USB and it recognized it as an Xbox One Controller and then I tried to update the controller but it says that their are no updates available.

    -And no im not using the Xbox One Epite controller. Im using the Xbox One Controller+Cable for Windows.

    Other Info.

    LOT NO./ DATE: 1745

    MODEL NO.: 1708
