  • Xbox 360 Pad Connection Issues.

    Basically, my old 360 broke, so i kept the pads for use on PC games, however, they were wireless, so i went out and got a play and charge kit for them, installed all the drivers, and then went to play... to find out that i coulden't as it refuses to connect.
    It shows in my device list as installed and working, I've redownloaded the drivers twice, disabled and re-enabled it in devices, still nothing.
    Any ideas?

    What drivers have you downloaded? An initial Google suggests that the play and charge kit is literally that - just a power cable. I suspect the drivers you've downloaded are for the wired controllers, which can be used with a PC rather than an Xbox.
