    All reports I have seen say no. The USB charging adapter only charges the controller.

    Why would you wait to buy a 360 Wired controller from someone?? they are not all that expensive and work extremely well on a PC. sure, they are a bit more expensive than a Gravis or other gamepad, but the quality of the 360 controller is excellent.

    My advice, suck up the cost and get one brand new. :D

    i've read on a couple of the rumor blogs that Microsoft will be releasing a USB dongle to use wireless controllers on your PC. that's probably a ways off, so don't wait. it's just kind of a cool thought.

    The wireless controllers communicate with the 360 on a lock after calibrated ... they are not designed to even work for a PC. The controller is the best I've ever held, and if you want one for your PC... buy a wired one.
