Are there controllers that only work for xbox 360 and not for pc?

Just that the thread name says.

I ask this because I recently bought an Xbox 360 controller (2nd from some guy's webshop) and it doesn't work on my pc (64bit Win7) (or any other pc/laptop).

So I mailed the guy I bought it from, and he says that the controller I bought DOES NOT work on the pc, only on the Xbox 360.

The kind of controller is shown here (don't mind the source, it's just about the picture it contains)

ps: I'm not sure I posted this in the right section, feel free to correct me.

I believe you need to download a driver in order for your controller to be compatible with your PC. If I can find it I will post a link to it, otherwise sorry.

Here is the driver download, and here is how to hook it up or whatever from Microsoft.
