how can i use my wireless Xbox 360 controller on the pc with the play and charge kit? Answered

i have an Xbox 360 wireless controller and i also have the charge and play cable for it, and i was wondering if i would be able to use this cable to connect my controller to the pc, and use it for gaming



Look at what the question actually was. He was asking if he could use the wireless controller on the pc without anything else. You can use the plug and charge kit on the 360 without batteries because it powers the wireless device inside the controller. the cord has nothing to do with sending or receiving data. I have tried this personally. You can use a 360 wireless controller on the PC with a controller adapter, otherwise you need a wired 360 controller. Also if you download a program called Pinnacle Game Profiler it will make setting up your controller to your pc games alot easier. Also if your drivers for the controller don't auto install you can look them up on microsoft.com under hardware

You can also use your wireless Xbox 360 controller to play PC games but in order to do this you will need to purchase the wireless gaming receiver. You can purchase it from zeromartz.com for $16.76

NikonDork,if you ever look back at this,what you said is a lie.I can play xbox 360 from a wireless controller with no batteries in it or a charger kit and it works just fine.I have proof that it works without an adapter,at least for the 360.

I have moded any system controller to usb except (dreamcast and 1 other) so if you want to talk sending it to me to be moded just email
Keep it hot!

i could mod anything to go to a pc (controller wise) like i have so far hooked up a nes, xbox, gamecube, snes,  ps2,  ps3 etc.
PS is hard but xbox is so easy
if you want it modded you can contact me at majorrockstar7@gmail.com

You can't unless you buy the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller PC Adapter:


Using the Play and Charge Kit for a wireless controller only carries power to the wireless controller, not data. When its charging with this cable, the wireless controller doesn't send data through the play and charge cable - it continues to send the data wireless.

The Xbox 360 Wired controller will work without any adapters.
