  1. Xbox Wireless Adapter unrecognized


    First off I am just going to call it an XWA. My adapter was working just fine for about a month after buying it off of Amazon, I had been using it with my turtle beach headphones to use as a mic. But yesterday it just stopped working, whenever I plug it in it says that windows do not recognize the device and that the XWA malfunctioned, I tried going into device manager because I saw that it helped some people but I don't even have a network adapter for the XWA it just states at an unknown device(device descriptor failed). I have also tried it on another computer with the same result and different USB's on my own computer. I am fairly certain that my unit is defective, and if so how would I go about replacing it? or is it fine, but I have searched all over the internet to no avail.

    :)
