Thanks shoby but no. Link 1 is for a wired controller & Link 1 - Step 2 is way too complicated for me.

link 2 is for getting your XBOX tethered up with your lappy.

Does the Wireless controller use Bluetooth?

Not too sure TBH, i have Bluetooth on my PC though.

let me elaborate a little on my OP.

I have a Wireless 360 controller, as i'm sure some of you know, my XBOX is knackered with red ring errors. Hence wanting the controller to be setup on my PC. i don't have any special pieces of equipment, neither am i willing to buy any.
I do have a cable that can connect the Wireless pad to the PC but i think that's just to charge it. (see image)

I believe you can get a official Microsoft adapter for it. I've seen it at Eb Games in a red packet. Not sure if that helps.

:roll: I am not willing to buy anything extra for this (as previously stated). If there's a software hack/ easy hardware mods then sweet, otherwise.....
