On USB connection, it works with Switch, Windows and Raspberry Pi.
B. M30 Bluetooth controller – Bluetooth wireless technology

8BitDo Bluetooth receivers/adapters support.
There are four LED lights on the bottom of the controller indicating the controller mode.
What systems does it work with?
It works with original Sega Genesis, Mega Drive model 1 and 2, Analogue Mega Sg.
If you wish to use it with Switch, Windows and Raspberry Pi, you need to use a USB cable for this.
Does it work with 8BitDo Bluetooth receivers/adapters?
No, it does not. It only works with the 2.4g receiver which comes with it.
What do the two shoulder buttons do?
When it is used with Mega Drive:
L = Z
R = C
On USB connection:
C = R1
Z = L1
L = L2
R = R2
Can I use it with Sega Saturn, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U?
No, you can not.
Can I use it on any device which uses the same controller port?
This can not be guaranteed as different devices apply different output wattage.
Does it work with other 2.4g receivers by 8BitDo, for instance, SN30 2.4g receiver?
No, it does not work any other 2.4g receiver except for the one which comes with this controller in the box.
Can I use two M30 2.4g on one Mega Drive?
Yes, you can. One receiver for one controller port. One receiver for one controller.
What do 3 button mode and 6 button mode actually do?
Since some games do not recognize 6 button mode, therefore, you need to swap it to 3 button mode which can be read and used by those games.
To sway between these two modes: press and hold MODE button on the controller for 3 seconds. Blue LED on the receiver blinks twice to indicate the success of mode switching.
*Default mode on the controller – 6 button mode.
How do I charge the controller? How long does the battery last when fully charged?
We suggest you charge it via a phone power adapter.
The controller uses 480mAh rechargeable battery with 1-2 hour charging time. The battery can last up to 35 hours when fully charged.
