Microsoft Common Controller for Window Class
Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows Version: 220.127.116.119 [8/13/2009]
Update Driver Warning
After doing this it works as advertised.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
