    I have a 2.4 GHz receiver for my pc. I was wondering if I could use it to connect a wireless 360 controller since it also uses 2.4 GHz waves? I dont know much about this so its probably a stupid question. Thanks for your time.

    I wouldn't buy one from the Amazon market place. Microsoft stopped producing them a while ago and there are tons and tons of clones about. You can find those on DX, FocalPrice etc.

    I have an original Microsoft one and it works well, not had any issues with it.

    ok I'll probably just get a wired 360 controller then. I can get one for about 10 dollars around here. Thanks for the help though.

    If you have a plug and play cord just use that.

    Mine doesn't work with the plug and play cord. That's why I bought my official adapter for $20 when they still sold them at Wal-Mart.

    The official adapters should STILL sell.
    I see them all the time.

    But yeah, you need the adapter, or a wired controller. Play and charge doesn't do anything.
