just an update. i see microsoft sells wireless remotes, wired xbox remotes, and wired pc remotes for the xbox system. Is it possible to do this at all with an old controller? also, how do i play xbox on my computer? do i download something and then just put in the cd? And my last question is if xbox live is free on computers, or if they charge for that too?
i am using my windows pc, and i just made this cnet account. I have no idea what i am doing, but i managed to post this (obviously). My mouse broke, and i heard it was possible to use a xbox remote. I decided to try; I downloaded the microsof xbox 360 accessories software, and that is it. I took my year-old xbox 360 wireless remote (is there a different one for computers) and turned it on with the software running. nothing happened, and it didnt connect. Do i have to buy a xbox controller usb adapter, or is there a way for me to simply use this contoller for my mouse? PLEASE HELP. i know one friend has this as his mouse, but i cant contact him to ask how.
