Datel software after Xbox 360’s June system update

If you own an Xbox 360 and one of Datel’s game controllers you might have had a few problems since the June 20 system update. This software made some minor changes that are being detailed by one YouTube user in the video below this article, so take a look at that if you are not sure what got changed.

Following the latest Xbox 360 system update Datel contacted Microsoft in relation to these issues, and explained that the problems include the WildFire 2, TurboFire 2, and EVO game controllers. If you have another type of controller that has had problems since this Xbox update then share a comment below, although we’ve already heard about some issues with one steering wheel (Super Sports 3X).

Exact details were not given of what incompatibilities are taking place, but Datel state users should download a software update direct from their website here, or if you have another problem then you should contact Datel’s customer service department.

How did your install of the June Xbox 360 system update go, and if you own one of Datel’s controllers let us know if the software update fixed the issues? Do you have a wish list for the next Xbox system update? What do you think the Xbox 360 needs to take the software to another level?

I have now purchased and returned 4 Datel controllers since June 25th 2012. The first refused to work at all, totally dead. The second, from another supplier, activated when having batteries inserted, but then would not sync with my Xbox. After trawling the web for a few minutes, I discovered the “incompatibility issue” due to M/soft’s recent update, and then logged into Datel / codejunkies site to update the firmware. The response from Windows 7 on my PC was “device not recognized” when plugging in the controller to perform the update. I contacted Datel’s help desk, and after 4 days… Read more »
