Question

Posted

Ok, so I waited about 6 months for MS to make the Xbox 360 wireless gaming receiver only to bring it home and have nightmares.

1st. when I opened the package and started cutting along the top (away from the product) someone thought it would be a good idea to snake the wire in a loop going vertical (top of package).

Back to the store to buy another after done cursing the sky!

Ok now this product has a issue that 50% of the people that buy it are having, after installation the you press the SYNC button on the PC Receiver and the controller, they find each other but fail to lock and take connection. This is even posted on the xbox forum with same issues.

My problem is the worst on this motherboard Asus A8N-SLI when i plug it into the USB Vista 64 finds it fine and says the correct name but ask for drivers.

As soon as you feed it the drivers it make my Logitech G7 stop working!!! it only does this when the driver is initialized though.

If i leave both plugged the computer starts my USB keyboard works but mouse dosent, unplug the receiver and the mouse still doesn't work. The only way it works if i start the computer without the 360 receiver. But sure enough if i plug it back in it kills the G7.

So i figure i would try the same in XP ... same issues

i have used the newest Xbox 360 wireless receiver drivers 1.1 and the issue still arises. This has been tested on other computers and its fine but its kills my mouse

Pro's:
Use 360 products on PC (If they sync and connect)
19.99

Con's
Finds each other but dosent connect
Kills Logitech G7
Packaging is OK but who ever snaked the wire needs to be hit with rocks

I have not been able to use this product once ! Im sure that will fix with updates but i seem to be the only one with a problem of getting my G7 frozen. Its like the drivers smash into each other.

Please help with this G7 issue as i think its a G7 and reciever issue and not the motherboard as my USB devices are still working just the G7 gets knocked out

ok if i start my computer with out the 360 wireless receiver plugged in its fine and if I plug it in after desktop showing they both work...

if its plugged in before that mouse initialization the mouse is kicked off and a replug in and out will not fix it

OK i have now bought new computer peices and built me a new Vista machine and somehow its the same problem

Built a Duo Core system with Striker extreme

Again, in Vista 32 or 64 & XP 32 or 64 if you have the mouse plugged in (Logitech G7) and the Xbox wireless gaming receiver before windows boot the driver for the wireless gaming receiver will initialize and the Logitech G7 is knocked out and will not function even after a unplug and re plug. but the mouse on my Dinovo Edge keyboard works so its not a mouse issue the wireless gaming reciever knocks out the logitech g7 for no reason...

BUT yet again if i boot and after desktop i plug in the wireless gaming receiver they both will work fine and play together

can someone with the Xbox 360 wireless gaming receiver and logitech G7 please confirm this

Cant get mine to work unless i unplug both my G15 and Razer copperhead then boot windows. If I plug it in after windows boots the Copperhead stops functioning and the receiver won't sync. if i plug in the keyboard or mouse after the controllers are in sync after a windows boot the controllers will fall out of sync and I will get flashing 4 quardants on my 360 controller. What a waste of money. I got it so I could use my racing wheel in windows, but I guess not :(.

or use an externally powered hub. that seemed to solve all my issues in the past with usb devices not functioning at the same time. (most boards seem to be underpowered for multiple usb devices.)

yea i know this a temp work around but this will happen with just a mouse and this device

if anything is plugged in while this is on it will do this...

a mouse or a keyboard, this really blows

There's really nothing you can do, except that workaround. I have the wireless reciever too, and it used to do that with my webcam. I have not yet found a solution to this yet, so I just took out my webcam...(not like I used it much anyways).

Is this a widespread issue? Or is it with just some people?
