I just bought a wired controller for xbox 360 about a week ago. I play a lot of xbox and I think that might be the problem but today I unplugged it and plugged in a few times and then it all of sudden started bugging out. I have the mic unplugged and it still says it's plugged in. I can't hear friends through game chat even if it's not plugged in. I can't hear them while it's plugged in either and they can't hear me. The only way I can hear them is if i completely unplug the controller. I have turtles x12 by the way. It's a very good controller and I like playing with it, and it would suck if there wasn't a way I could fix it.
