Xbox 360 PC wireless gaming Receiver

My OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Problem:
When I plug in the xbox 360 wireless receiver the drivers will not load. The light on the device turns on and windows recognizes it as an Unkown USB device.

  • the package itself does state that it is windows 7 compatable as does the manufacture's website
  • I have used this forum's search and the instructions by walker don't help:

XBox 360 PC Wireless Gaming Receiver
I just bought a Wireless Gaming Receiver and the disc included was broken. The device appears to work, but I don't have a driver for it. It says on the package that it is compatible with Windows 7, but I cannot find a driver download online. Does anyone know where I could get one? Thanks.
