The disc that it comes with doesn't work in windows 7. The trick I used to get it to work is as follows:

Right click on Computer
Go to Properties
Click on Device Manager
Right click on the Unidentified 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 device drivers on my computer
Microsoft Common Controller for Window Class
Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows Version: 2.1.0.1349 [8/13/2009]
Update Driver Warning
Click Yes

After doing this it works as advertised.

This should be under (Platform) PC not Xbox 360.
It has no purpose for the Xbox 360.
You don't need it if you want to use 360 wireless controllers on the 360.
It's purpose is to allow you to use your 360 wireless controllers on your PC.

Most probably know all this already, but I'm sure some people don't so ... now they do.

My package didn't have a disc like others have mentioned (i never use those anyway). When i plugged it in it didn't install properly. a simple search on Google took me to the Microsoft site and the proper driver. Installed, rebooted and synched my controller with ease. Tried it with AC3 and Alice: Madness Returns with no problems

I bought this product and I am plesantly supprised. It was originally suppost to be white but when i got it it was actually black, It took a week to ship from the usa which i am not supprised at but pleased at. I find it to be a good solid product so far and for the people saying the drives are hard to install, just go to the microsoft website and download the drives there, I was originally using a wired controller and they are the same drives it works the same just use those and you will be up and running fast.

I purchased this receiver thinking it was the official receiver made by Microsoft. Once I received the actual item, it became apparent that it was not. The main thing to look out for is the lack of the "Microsoft" logo on the item itself and the packaging. If you intend to buy the official receiver, make sure "Microsoft" is clearly displayed on the front.

In addition, the item comes with no user instructions and a driver disc that doesn't work under Windows 7. It certainly doesn't work out of the box as an official Microsoft product would, and requires you to manually set the driver, which takes some tech knowledge.

Other than that, once you do get it working it doesn't seem to have any major issues. All the inputs register fine and it has a reasonable range. Just make sure you're fine with buying a knockoff rather than the official product.

It definitely isnt the official Microsoft one, but i am not sure that's actually a problem. I attempted to get it to work on a Windows 7 machine and a Windows 8 machine. On either operating system the driver will not install automatically, the software will but the driver wont. on windows 8 i just went to the device manager and selected the driver from a list of drivers on my machine. On windows 7, it didnt come up in the available list of drivers and when i maunally went to the instal folder to get the driver it didnt recognize it. I found one (i think the chineese driver) on a forum from some people with the same problem. Please be careful with what you download from forums, know what to look for, or find someone who does. I still had to add it manually from a rar file it was compressed in, but it worked. Gotta love the internet. besides the driver hiccups, it works great.

The seller was good, got billed for the exact amount. shipped same day i think, it took maybe 2 days after that, pretty standard and that was with the $2 shipping offer so cant complain

I've ordered the receiver on two separate occasions now, the first order I received a white receiver and the second time a black receiver. They have both been genuine Microsoft products and work without a problem. With the end of a console era there are undoubtedly millions of wireless Xbox controllers lying around and this is the perfect way to keep them useful after upgrading consoles. I've been using mine to connect a controller to my media center for many months now and haven't had a problem with it at all. It reaches about 20 feet without a connection problem, further than that I have not tried.

Anyone who is getting a new console and will be having some extra controllers left around should definitely consider buying one of these. If one doesn't have any controllers than I recommend buying a couple used ones for a heavily discounted price.

The Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver works fine if you can get it to work. After plugging it in and trying several times to get the controller to connect to it, I was ready to conclude that it was either defective or there were some wireless interference issues.

After searching through many forums, it turns out that the gaming receiver sucks up a lot of power and your motherboard may not be able to handle it if it has a lot of other USB devices plugged in. I started up my PC with no USB devices plugged in, plugged in the gaming adapter and the controller connected. I plugged in my other devices one by one and it turned out the gaming adapter would no longer work if my LED backlit USB keyboard was plugged in (another power-hogger).

The solution I found online was to plug it into an externally powered USB hub (has its own power adapter). So a monitor with USB inputs would work fine. Unfortunately I didn't have one so I had to buy a hub. Works fine now, but beware since buying this might incur an extra cost just to get it to work.
