Recommended Posts

hi everyone,

 

i've been asking myself how to install my controller to pc since the wireless receiver is not available for sale here, is it possible to use the usb charging cable like this? i got one of this thing which i use to charge my battery but everytime i hook it up to my pc vista wont recognize it even after installing the driver from microsoft it still say unknown device. any info on this? :blink:

Sorry, but the charging cables don't send data through. So they can't be used to transform a Wireless Controller to a Wired one for PC use. It will only charge the controller when plugged into a PC.

 

The only option is using a wired controller or a the wireless adapter. Either one cost about the same I think $20-30 in the US.

 

You could try a PS3 controller, but that's really hit and miss. Since Sony doesn't support it at all and it's all third party drivers and software. Which has about a 50/50 chance of working. Out of the two times I've tried it, both attempts didn't work.

I bought a wireless controller the other day and it had one of those cables. I'll give it a try just for kicks but I doubt it will work.
