4.0 out of 5 stars Flawless once you get it working, February 5, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows (Video Game)
This is a very handy device and well worth your money as ou favorite games can now be played with the comfort of the Xbox 360 controller.

A word of advice though, if you have Windows 7, getting this device to work is very tricky. When i got it, everytime I plug it in Windows 7 attempts to find a driver (online search also), fails and then says 'Failed to install un-recognised device' something similar, and it remains an 'Unrecognised Device' under Control Panel. If this happens to you even if you install the drivers, you have to do the following:
Plug it in, go to Device Manager and it should come up as "Unknown Device" or something similar. Right click on it, go to 'Update Driver Software' then select 'Browse for driver software on your computer' then select 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer', scroll down and select 'Microsoft Common Controller For Windows Class' and hit Next, then select 'Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows' (if there are more then one, select the most latest) and hit Next. I did all of this on my Windows 7 32bit after installing the drivers and no more 'Uknown Device' business, works perfectly now.

Thank you so much for the detailed information. It was challenging enough to find the driver (http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=gaming - select the Wireless Controller from the drop down). Even then, once I ran the install, it still did not work. However, following your instructions worked like a charm. I'm using Windows 7 64-bit.
