    I didn't realize the 360 wireless controller isn't working on the G5 until now. Before that it worked just fine on the MDD G4. When you press the center button on the controller, it keeps on blinking. It never just shows the 1 light that it has connected. If you go into the System settings, that is when it decides to connect to player 1, but it still doesn't actually work.

    Strange how the moment you go into system, that is when the controller claims to be on player 1 according to the light on the controller. Anyone else with a G5 having this problem?

    I hit save on the USB options, and the controller started to work as normal. Went to reboot and now it stopped working at all. Now the State of the device says Running with a question mark, Class says Vendor, and the bindings says None.

    Is the xbox 360 class visible in the list in USB prefs when this happens? What’s the product id of thr controller?

    The class is visible and does show Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows. The product ID is 1817(=0x0719)

    I did connect the wireless receiver back to my PC, and it works just fine. Was making sure it didn't just up and die.

    I'll give my set a go when I have a moment... Been a while since I've used this.

    Appreciated. :) Last year at CRX 2020 I brought the wireless adapter and the 360 controller and worked fantastic. I didn't think to try it on my G5 until recently. Literally worked that one time, then no longer does. Might do a fresh reinstall of MOS on a spare drive to see how it behaves once I find where I put my spare drive at.
