    Is there a particular technique for charging the rechargable battery on the xbox360 controller? The green light comes on after it's been plugged in via the usb cable, but when I removed the cable the controller doesn't work. could it just be a dead battery, or do I need to do something in particular to charge it?

    I used the controller that is already synched, though I did install the battery from a different controller. Would that make any difference?

    Nope, They can drop their sync to the console sometimes if you take it and sync to another console, if it feels lonely haha

    Not sure I understand that, Zudalian. Do you mean that, if I put a rechargable battery into the controller that is already synched to my Xbox, that I will need to re-synch it just to make the battery work?
