    xbox 360 controller driver help


    Since a windows 10 update on 20/11/2020, the xbox wireless receiver i use with old xbox 360 controllers no longer seems to work.

    In the device manager, it stays as an other device > unknown device. When i update the driver, or uninstall and re-attach and update the driver to the latest that windows has, nothing moves and it stays an unknown device.
    Previously it would at least remember that I've assigned it as "xbox 360 controller for windows"

    Any ideas? done all sorts of restarts, uninstalling the drivers and trying the older drivers, plus the drivers for xbox one controllers, nothing so far.

    It's like the receiver has become defunct instantly after the windows update.

    It is a proxima direct X-CBR

    Thanks!

  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

    Can't reinstall xbox 360 controller driver

    If you have this driver installed it should show at the bottom of Device Manager (Hidden... Why ?)

    as XBOX 360 Peripherals and be listed in Programs and Features under Microsoft XBOX 360 accessories.

    If it is listed in Programs and Features try uninstalling. Reboot and reinstall.
