If your using a laptop, make sure you use the same USB port you set it up with.
I had that happen on my daughters laptop. Put it back in the proper usb port and it worked fine.

If thats not your issue, make sure your batteries are new.

I'm not sure where i've gone wrong.
Ok did you follow the steps again after installing the Xbox 360 Accessories Softwrare

Right click on Computer
Go to Properties
Click on Device Manager
Right click on the Unidentified Device ( or if no Unidentified, then the xbox device)
Go to Properties
Go to the Drive tab
Click on Update Driver…
Browse my computer for driver software
Let me pick from a list of devices on my computer
Windows Common Controller for Window Class
Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for: 2.1.0.1349 [8/13/2009]
Update Driver Warning
Click Yes

That is strange that you don't see it now.
Well, i have done that, uninstalled and reinstalled countless times. But still in the list of 'Microsoft common controller for windows class' all that appears are the drivers for 'Xbox 360 controller' and that one doesn't work. Please can someone advise.

well thats great TheOriginalBob... Glad its working.
Must have been an older driver you installed at first, then the update fixed that.

I never use the one that comes with the 360 Wireless controlller, I always use the updated one from their website.

it is wireless compadable but the driver should say wireless there should be three listed the one you installed and a wireless one i just recently bought a wired xbox 360 afterglow controler and you have to manualy install this driver yourself windows will not install it for you

also did you ever think that the port you plugged the reciver in was working correctly or not cause it does cause some usb devices to stop working i had to unplug my web cam so i can actually play

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.
