How to use Xbox joypad on PC

Recommended Posts

That's just an USB to Xbox port adapter, of course very necessary but it is far from the whole story.

Getting the original Xbox controller working on a PC is more than a bit of a faff mainly because of driver issues. The old XBCD (Xbox Controller Driver) was unsigned and so there were problems because of that and it only supported up WinXP. I think people had it working with Win7 but beyond that I do not know.

I gave up on it.




The second solution I've not tried but would be the way to go for Win10 users. I note from one of the link pages that Win7 users actually have to have the MS XB360 Accessories driver on their PC for it to work which is why I wouldn't bother with it either. You're better off using a genuine wired XB360/X360 For Windows controller which has specific MS driver support and apparently will actually download/install the driver directly.

BTW if you want to download the XB360 controller driver and install it manually it now appears to be impossible to do it via MS downloads. The links to the driver I had are all dead and searching the MS web site just sends you round the houses. So it looks as if you would need to use a third party web site/download instead.

You might be able to get it working by disabling driver signing in Win 10 but I agree a 360 controller is a much easier proposition.

I think this is the driver (win 7 32 and 64 bit available but may work on win 10):

Personally I use a wired x360 controller which works perfectly on Win 10 x64

      I have a Jet Set Radio Future save that I have played around 25 hours in that I would like to be able to play on my console, but I haven't been able to figure out how to resign the save. The save has an "error reading JSRF save data" and doesn't let me use my save. The save originated in Cxbx-R and it won't allow me to move the save to or from the console without this error occurring. Not sure how to proceed from here, and would be grateful if anyone wanted to help me out. I have attached the save if that can help, thanks for your time.

      Hi guys,
       So I was given an Xbox 1.0 from a friend that is chipped and has a 120gb HDD. Unfotunately the chip does not have support for HDD larger than 120gb and I am unable to flash the chip's BIOS (evox says it is not flash writeable).
       I'm basically in a bind to find a guide on how to softmod this box and tsop it from a modchip because I don't know what type of chip it is and how to disable it. Pictures below: 
      Apologies for the very dusty MB, lol! As always any guidance will be highly appreciated.
