    on the top of the xbox theres a small circle button, this is used to sync the controller to xbox.
    Press it once and the circle will rotate.
    On the front of the xbox there is also another small button, press it and the light on the xbox will spin.

    Then when they're both synced up they will flash in sync

    Think he thought it was easier than entertaining 3 kids ! Its the spare room and we've had visitors over Christmas so he says he's painting it quick before i trash it again !

    I am so untechnical - i got a shuffle and had to get my oh to add all the songs - i just don't get it at all
