    Xbox one controller not recognized via usb on pc windows 10


    Hello,I have read that a recent win10 update included the Xbox One controller drivers, and all you need to do is plug it in. However, when I plug a controller in and press the home button it only flashes until it times out and does not get recognized. When plugging the cable in to the controller, it vibrates, but does not show up in device manager and the Xbox Accessories app on my PC does not see any controllers connected. There are no updates for my controller, I checked on an Xbox One. I am using the short micro usb to usb a cable included with the controllers.

    :)

  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

    Hello SubieTY,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Initially, we need to pair the device to show up in the list while connected through Bluetooth. Check with the below mentioned steps and see if it works.


    Hope it helps.

    Xbox One controller not recognised by windows 10 PC

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    1. Were you able to use the XBOX One controller on this computer before?
    2. Have you tried connecting the XBOX controller on a different computer?


    Here are the few steps you can try to fix the issue.



    1. Select Start, then Run, then type
      sysdm.cpl
      , and then select OK.
    2. On the Hardware tab, select Device Manager.
    3. When the controller is successfully installed, you see three entries in Device Manager. There should be two entries under
      Human Interface Devices:
    HID-compliant game controller

    USB Human Interface Device

    Additionally, there should be a third entry in under
    Microsoft Common Controller for Windows Class:

    Xbox One Controller for Windows

    1. If you see yellow exclamation points next to any of these entries, there's a problem with the installation.
    2. Double-click Xbox One Controller for Windows.
    On the Driver tab, select
    Update Driver and check the status of the issue.



    You may also refer the suggestions from

    if the above
    suggested steps doesn’t fix the issue.

    Hope it helps.
