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

      long story short, ages ago I softmodded a 1.1 machine and naturally locked the drive after upgrading it. shortly after I tsoped it though, and zeroed and password- without backing the original or unlocking the drive.
      I tried chimp261812 and neither master password (XBOXSCENE and TEAMASSEMBLY) worked. the master password *should* be a string of 32 T (it's a samsung drive) but chimp won't let me input a different master password. there's the hddkey.txt option but it only accepts 16 bytes of hexadecimal characters, unless I'm missing something it's not related to the master password.
      there's also the linux terminal but I'm not sure what I'm doing here. any ideas?

      Modified XBox done in 2003-2004.
      I had my XBox modified in 2003-2004 with a new hard drive and fan installed that allowed me to play every game made up to that time from Nintendo,Sega, so on and so on.  Trying to get it back up and running but it’s still doing the same thing it started to do back in 2006.  I have a separate circuit and toggle switch on the outside that would allow me to play regular Xbox games and then I would turn on the toggle switch to play off the added hard drive.  Now all it does is power on and off before just turning the on button red!  Anybody remember modifying a Xbox back then??   Thanks for any feedback
