    Nothing to do, it works out of the box.

    Make sure you run it as administrator with vista (right click...run as administrator)

    My friend says (I don' have the game) he runs it out of the box, no need for Admin rights.

    would it be difficult to get it working with a wired 360 controller? my friend can't get his 360 shipped out when he's in his A-school, but his laptop is allowed. playing COD all night will remind him of home

    All the console owners out there, most likely :idea:


    On the PC, however... I agree!

    All you need for a wired 360 controller to work is the driver and a USB socket to plug it in

    beware , the XBCD drivers don't work with the wireless remote so you'll be stuck with the Z-Axis instead of triggers

    Win Vista doesn't need the XBCD drivers (at least x64 Ultimate doesn't). PLUS, you can use wired AND wireless controllers. Just take note that the wireless ones need the dongle/usb bit that they should sell at any XBox retailer...
    but yah - COD4 on a PC with a controller???

    kb/mouse is still better, but each to their own.
    Short answer: yes, it's possible, and your friend is not likely to encounter a whole lot of problems.

    Not sure. Check some of the XBox sites... google should be your friend here.

    Are yes Vista 64 recognises the 360 controller right away, on XP you need drivers (even that might be wrong with SP3), sorry for not reading thread properly my gfx card broke last night *cries* :X

    xp recognizes it as well but that doesn't mean that either of them can make good use of the triggers

    Yip - works out the box.

    Wow does vista see this ! Only problem with that is that i hate playing FPS's without a mouse .. One of the really annoying things about it with me, as i have a zboard, is that i have to re-map the bloody keys everytime i conect ot a new server, in multiplay - which to be honest has really put me off it.
