View Full Version : How do you get a keyboard to work?
Topic says it all really,
im trying to get my keyboard working with my 360 for certain games,
how do i get it to work as at the moment it does nothing.
I just plug mine into the USB port on the front and WHAM! It works... Stop putting it in the ethernet socket at the back, that might help ;)
well im plugging it in the front and wham,
bugger all happens.

What are you trying to use it for mate? Keyboards can only be used for sending messages and navigating the Dashboard as far as i know.
and using it with final fantasy when it finally turns up

I use a wireless keyboard with my 360 and FFXI and all I did was plug the receiver into the back USB port and then just clicked the Connect button on the receiver and the keyboard. I've noticed that some non-name brand keyboards malfunction or just plain won't work. My roommate got some cheap keyboard to use with FFXI and atleast once a day he has to reconnect the keyboard in order for it to read properly.
I would advise you to pick up a Microsoft or Logitech keyboard in order to have the best chance of getting it to work.
I bought an adaptor that switches ps2 to usb,
tried 5 different keyboards all different brands and none worked,
from microsoft to ben q.
Went to argos yesterday bought a usb keyboard for £9 worked straight away.
So if anyone else wnats to use a keyboard on the 360 avoid buying a ps2/usb adaptor and just buy a usb keyboard.

Flea, get a Microsoft media USB keyboard - thats the one I got £15 from ASDA, I use that one all the time and it works perfectly. ;)
