Thanks Mr Mangham, the receiver was one more useless google link away from ending up in the bin.

Thank you Mr. G. Mangham. One small thing though;

j - was labeled "Microsoft Common Controller for Windows" (just in case anyone gets lost at this point)

Thanks for this! Razer Onza Controller should have been plug and play, but couldn't find drivers :/ This fixed it! I can play racing games on my PC again!

I got this product today and have had no such problems with installing it. It runs smoothly on Windows 7 64bit. Make sure you pop the disc first to intall the software, THEN connect the reveiver. Driver was installed succesfully straightway and I checked it with few FPS games already so it's confirmed. However there's a cheap, non official receiver circulating on Amazon and I think people may be having problems with that version.
