    Hi MI kid05,



    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.



    I understand that you are facing issues connecting your Xbox 360 wireless controller adapter to Windows 10 computer. We will certainly help you with this issue.

    Usually, we see the “Unknown Device” if the drivers are not installed correctly by Windows on plug and play devices.

    You may want to check connecting the adapter to a different port and check.

    Also, make sure that your Windows is up to date with the latest updates.

    Meanwhile, we can try and install the drivers manually and check.

    Method 1: Uninstall and re-install drivers manually.

    1. Go to Search and type Device Manager and open Device Manager.
    2. Right click on “Unknown Device” and click on
      Properties.
    3. In the Driver tab click on Update Driver
    4. Click on the option that says “Browse my computer for driver software”.
    5. Select the option “Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer”.
    6. Check the list for Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows Version:….”
    7. Click on “Yes” if you get the prompt.
