    Help with Xbox wireless controller and Xpadder ***Problem Solved***

    I bought a MS Xbox wireless controller with crossfire adapter last year to use with my PC. At the time, I downloaded xpadder so I could use it with non-windows titles and now it's gubbed. It won't work with my Xbox Slim and as I've now got my PC running W7, it won't work on that either as Xpadder only works on XP or Vista.

    I'd be grateful if anyone knows how I can get it to work with my Xbox because although it's 10 months old, I've only used it for about 1-2 hours as I quickly realised I prefer using a keyboard and mouse and I only got my Xbox a few weeks ago.

    What I think the problem is, is that Xpadder has told my my controller that it's no longer an Xbox controller. If that's correct how can I undo Xpadder, or something like that.

    Is it a wireless controller? Have you synched with the xbox?

    Yes it's wireless, but it just won't sync with my Xbox. I'll never use it with my PC, just my Xbox. Might the problem be that it's a controller made before they brought out the Slim Xbox models?

    It should still work. I'm assuming that the controller is not out of charge. I not then
    to sync them up, power on the Xbox and the controller. Then push the sync button on the Xbox (small black button next to the USB ports on the front), then push the sync button on the controller (location varies depending on the type of controller). When you push the sync button the green light will spin in a circle (on both the Xbox and the controller). If the light doesn’t spin in a circle then it isn’t in sync mode and you might have a problem with the controller.

    The above process work with someone else synching old controllers to a new xbox.

    Woohooo! It worked! I've now got 2 wireless controllers. It's easy when you know how.
