    I've an unofficial Xbox wireless gaming receiver which works with my android tablet but fails to work on my PC as Windows can't find the driver software. I have tried using guides which have mentioned downloading the drivers of Microsoft's website and doing it manually but I get a code 10 error when doing this. Please could anyone offer some help.

    1. Device manager

    2. Right Click on 'Unknown Device' or remove the drivers first so that it appears as Unknown Device.

    3. Click Update Driver Software

    4. Browse Computer for Driver Software, DO NOT CLICK AUTOMATIC UPDATE.

    5. Click on 'Let me pick from a list of Device Drivers on my computer'

    6. IMPORTANT, go down to 'Microsoft Common Controller For Windows Class'. Highlight and click next.

    7. This list varies by machine and i cannot be 100% sure but you should have a bunch of drivers in this list referring to your receiver, i actually have to use the 'XBOX 360 Controller For Windows Version: 2.1.0.1349 [13/08/2009]' driver to make it function and find my controller.

    Go through and use my method first, if that doesn't work then try the other drivers after removing the previous one first. Good luck and tell me what you find if you can.

    Edit: I'm using windows 7 64bit.

    Thank you kindly for the reply. I did try the above method to no avail although I didn't try the other drivers. I was leaning towards the problem being with Windows on the PC as opposed to the hardware itself

    Just out of curiosity why are you using an unofficial one and not the one made by Microsoft? I have the MS one and all xbox stuff seamlessly works with Windows, no download etc required.

    Or just a case of you just so happen to have it knocking about. Not a dig i am just wondering if advantage to using unofficial ones.

    I think the advantage is monetary.

    Pretty much this. Personally, I didn't think there would be too much of a difference and assumed a non official one would work just fine

    We have the ms 360 wireless reciever thingy for Windows and the bastard thing would not install no matter what I did. Eventually I discovered it was something called joytokey that was over riding it that my son had installed. As soon as I removed that...bingo.

    FCUTA!
