A company called Logitech produces a line of wireless video game controllers that are designed to be used with Microsoft's Xbox 360. These controllers offer all the controls of a first-party Microsoft controller, albeit with a slightly different shape and size. If you want to connect your Logitech wireless controller to your Xbox 360, you're going to have to follow the standard setup procedures for both of your devices.

Insert the four AA-sized batteries that came with your controller into the battery compartments on the back of each of the controller's two handles. To insert them, simply remove the battery compartment covers and push the AA batteries into their spots.

Press "Power" to turn on your Logitech wireless Xbox 360 controller. If the batteries are inserted correctly, a green indicator light on the front of the controller turns "ON" when you press "Power," indicating that the unit is powered up and ready for use.

Press "Power" to turn on your Xbox 360. Allow the system to fully boot to the main menu before proceeding to Step 4.

Press the "Connect" button on each device. The Connect buttons are on top of the Logitech wireless controller and on front of the Xbox 360. Once both buttons are pressed, each device locates and connects to the other device. One of the four numbered indicator lights on the front of your wireless controller turns green. Which numbered indicator light illuminates indicates what Player you are set up as on the system. For example, if the number "1" indicator light illuminates, that controller will be "Player 1" in all games played on the console.
