Can't get USB XBOX360 Wired Controller Recognized

  • A few months ago I tried getting retropi setup, but had trouble regardless which controller I tried. I downloaded the new version last night, flashed it to my SD Card asnd booted it up. After getting into emulation station, it told me "1 gamepad detected" when my 360 controller was the only thing plugged in, but no matter what buttons I hit, it stays at that screen, it never actually detects the controller.

    Any ideas? Super frustrated. This is an official USB XBOX360 wired controller

  • @JHamz I had a similar situation.

    When you load an emulator do see an error, for example I once saw this message "Microsoft X-Box 360 Pad (1118/654) not configured" when trying to play a rom on the emulator FBA.

    I too asked on the forums but I was able to resolve it myself. I'm assuming we have the same control a Xbox360/PC Pad. If you go to Emulation Station and Retro Pie Config ensure you update all the main packages.

    There are other drivers you can test:
