The XCM Cross Fire Converter allows Xbox users to utilize their 360 controllers with older versions of the Xbox. With this capability, you can use the 360 controllers to play older games on the original Xbox or have an extra controller on hand for multiplayer game play. Setting up the 360 controllers to work with the original Xbox requires only a few steps.

Turn on the Xbox 360. Attach the XCM Cross Fire Converter to the Xbox 360 in the USB port. Confirm that the power indicator LED light is blinking on the Xbox.
