If it's a corded controller. I think you can just plug it in, but I might be wrong. I know it worked fine for me w/ my Guitar Hero guitar to play frets on fire...

You will probably need to download 360 drivers for your computer ... this is what I found


I have not really tried them, though. Hopefully they work.

It won't boot on my pc, says not a valid application and I DL'ed the 32 bit version. I'll keep looking or just pick up a cheap controller tomorrow from walmart.

Microsoft makes a 360 controller for the PC, but with the drivers from Windows Update, the 360 wired version is reported to work.

They also make a wireless adapter for the PC to use the wireless 360 controllers, but I've heard some pretty poor reviews. It's buggy and is incompatible with Logitech devices (mice and/or keyboards).
