Yeah,got a wireless one with a play and charge kit and looking to get it to work with these N64 ROMs I have. When I connect the controller to my PC,the controller ring of light blinks like it would on a Xbox 360 while trying to connect but im guessing I need a certain driver to get it up and running. Help please.

You need the wireless adapter or an actual hardwired controller. It doesn't work with the plug and play.

I got mine from newegg when I built my PC. Amazon has them for $17 with prime shipping if your not in the war zone.

Just noticed that one is a knockoff, but it has good reviews. The Microsoft one is $18 and is here.

Yeah...kinda am in one. Im looking on ebay for one. Thanks for the help.

I thought so. Good luck getting one man. I used a cheap *** wired controller for the longest time playing my SNES emulator.

You might as-well just buy an Official wired xbox controller for like £30/$40 or so... Plug it straight into a USB port on your PC and its ready to go.
