Microsoft Xbox Wireless Controller. It needs to be genuine, not third-party.

I just wanted to say that you are a phenomenal gamer. You make it look so easy and your gameplay has this commanding "tone" to it (i.e. not frantic -- more of a dominating calm :) ).

That link isn't working ^^

You need a Microsoft Xbox controller.

3rd party Xbox controllers will NOT work.

You may be using a charge only cable from the controller to XIM APEX. Make sure the USB cable supports data.

Sync means it can transfer data.

Have you updated to the latest BETA firmware for your XIM Apex?

It adds support for the new Xbox controllers, I think you may be running on old firmware and that's why the controller doesn't show up on XIM Manager.
