Windows 7: Wireless Xbox 360 Controller w/ Play & Charge won't work

Wireless Xbox 360 Controller w/ Play & Charge won't work

This is the controller I used for my Xbox before I sold it. It still works, but my Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit doesn't seem to want to be compatible with it.

Driver 2.1.0.1349

I downloaded the latest drivers and installed them, and I plug it in and it says installing device and it installs. It starts charging, but the Center button just keeps blinking, and it is showing up under device manager.


Any ideas?

Play and Charge cable is only for charging.
you need a wireless receiver for the controller to work on the PC.

Ah I see, I thought it connected through the USB when plugged in, I guess I'll have to pay more money

or sell the wireless and buy a wired controller.
