the charge and play cable is only for charging the controller, does not allow for USB control on the PC.
I see quite a few people hook it up that way not realizing that it won't work.

Do you have this Wireless adapter?

btw, I plugged in my receiver and Win 7 recognized it and installed the drivers automatically, then I synced my controller and played Just Cause 2 for a few hours last week.

If you have the off-brand Chinese 360 Adapter then there are some steps you have to do to get it to install in Win 7 properly.
there was a thread here a week or two ago about other adapter, I'll see if I can find it.

NON 360. Is there a way to get Old Xbox controllers (the better ones imho) to work with windows 7 ? Windows 7 does not seem to be smart enough to understand the XP driver. It will not pick up my controller, even after the drivers appear to install. Its this simple.
