Hello! After plugging PDP Controller into PC it says its not recognized. Im running windows 10 with all updates installed.After installing drivers from pdp site it doesnt work either. After trying to install drivers manuallly through device manager it only shows yellow exclamation mark next to PDP Wired Controller for Xbox One - Stealth Series|Phantom Black.Is there a solution? Installing drivers for original Xbox One doesnt work.In device manager it says The device cannot start. Code 10

I do see that they are a wired controller and the only advice I can find is updating the Microsoft drivers which it appears you have done. Will see what else I can drum up for you...

I had this exact problem. And I just got it fixed.

(Win 10, PDP controller, Wired, Stealth Series, PDP Hub, does not recognise)

My controller was not recognised by Windows at all. I downloaded the proper drivers from the PDP site and it showed up in my Device Manager as "PDP [...]" After restarting, my connected controller vibrated and lit up on power.

After installing the PDP Hub, my controller was not recognised.

I uninstalled the device (right clicking on it in Device Manager) and physically disconnected/reconnected the controller - hoping windows would find the drivers for me.

Windows did find the drivers and It was now listed in Device Manager under "Xbox Peripherals" as "Xbox Gaming Device" (and still is).

The PDP Hub software then recognised the controller (I pressed "A") and it demanded the drivers be updated (atuo-update through the Hub).

It brought back to the first screen (controller connection) and I freaked out a bit because it was showing no controllers recognised again but I clicked the box (saying connect a recognised device [or whatever]) and it went ahead to the next screen with my controller now connected.

I think the key was getting the device installed under the name Xbox Gaming Device.

I don't think my exact process is a proper solution, however, this is how I fixed my problem. Hopefully, it will help future readers too.

I tried that. It worked last night and now when i tried to connect the controller, it doesnt work. It does the same thing where it doesnt even light up.
