Tonight I tried to internalize my hardrive, but it just isn't detected by my xbox. I soldered all of the wires in to the mobo properly, but one thing i'm worried about is the way I extended the sata to molex cable. I used wire from an ethernet cable to make the power cable longer. Also to connect the two wires I coated each with solder, put them side by side, and melted the solder. Is this the way it sould be done, or should I twist the wires together? Another thing that could have gone wrong that I was also worrying about was maybe when I screwed the mobo onto the chassy it may have broken the places that I soldered because it is a pretty tight fit under that mothereboard. If anyone could help I would appreciate it cause I have been working on this stupid mod for a while, and if it is something simple that doesn't require me to take the mobo out AGAIN that would be awesome.
Thanks allot, pbskidz.
that enthernet cable might be too small
and the case might have messed it up but did u put anything on top of it(if more the solder points for the data part are toughing the case thatmight be the problem i would try it with out being in the case) and if u need help there is a tutorial link in my sig.

Your tut was the one I followed popbals, its not in the case its just in the chassy thing. I had allot of throuble connecting those tiny wires to those points, not because they are really small, but because they are so brittle...they just kept falling off. one of the points may have gotten tugged off while i was screwing the mobo onto the chassy, idk. Do you think that ethernet wire isnt riight for extending power cables? I dont think its too small.
well first of all i would like to say you get what you pay for. instead of useing ethernet cable witch is mad for signals not power. You should prob try to go buy a real molex cable. And take it all back out and check every thing again. And pretest be for yo put every thing back together and you wont have to work twice as hard. Also you should prob. plan your mods a little bit to me it sounds like you just got up and said i am board lets do this.
First of all I thought that ethernet cable would work, second I thought that you HAD to screw the mobo into the chassy for it to work because whenever I dont screw it in all the way I get an overheating error. I did plan the mod just like all of me otheres, I just assumed ethernet cable would work sice it worked on my rf board fader.

The 360 can be ran out of the cage for awhile, or for a good while as long as you keep it cooled off. The reason it overheats in the cage not screwed down tightly is usually because the board screws are tight and the heatsink screws aren't, that pushes up on the heatsinks which will allow it to overheat.
