    so project64 works fine on Windows, and in parallels under devices>USB> the 360 controller shows up. However, I can't get the controller to show up in project64. This seems like it would be kind of a hard thing to troubleshoot, across platform with this extra device. On "My Computer," it doesnt say anything about a controller, but the controller is checked under devices<usb. So is isight, and isight shows up as a USB video device on "my computer."

    Thanks a lot!

    yeah, you can't use the charging cable to connect the wireless 360 controller to your computer. You have to get the wireless gaming receiver.

    get the drivers

    you just need the windows drivers for the xbox 360 controller. Just google it up and you should be able to find it.
