It’s a good idea to get a generic xbox360 wireless receiver less then 10 bucks rather to spend 3 times more on an official one, since they just work the same way.
The only difference between a official one and a generic one is how you install the driver.
I’m going to show you how to properly install the driver for a generic wireless receiver on a Windows7 PC.
1.Connect the wireless receiver to one of your PC’s USB port (Do not connect to any USB hub or any USB extension devices,because it may not have enough power to run the receiver).
And you’ll see a popup notice as follow:
2.Wait a sec,it’ll show an error message as below indicate that the driver was not installed. Just ignore it.
3.Go to the Device Manager (Start -> Control Panel -> Device Manager)
4. In the Device Manager,you’ll found a “Unknow devices”,right click on it,and choose “Update Driver software”
5. Choose “Browse my computer for driver software”
6. Browse the driver file source, usually it’s located in the \USB Driver\ folder of the driver disc,if you don’t have one,click here to download.
7. You’ll received a warning,indicate that the driver is not verified by the publisher,choose “Install this driver software anyway” to continue.
8. Wait a sec,and done! You’re ready to use the wireless receiver now.
If you don’t have a wireless receiver yet,you can get one from our store.
