anyone know a good place (preferably cheap) to buy the DB25?
Maplins if ur in the uk or ireland.
Thanx a million for the tutorial SD. I made my cable & it worked. I Just cudnt get any of the dumps to match. So I did a bit of reading & found the following in another tutorial.
If for whatever reason you can't get two matching NAND dumps, then please do as follows:
If you're getting no errors in NandPro, but when you compare your dumps they never match, you need to ground the LPT cable.The un-shielded wire on the LPT cable (ie no plastic sleeve) is the ground, or if you've built your own cable from scratch, attach a wire from the metal chassis of the DB-25 connector. Attach this to the metal shielding of the 360 or one of the copper grnd points around the screw holes in the mobo and that should sort the problem.
I just used the spare wire in the cat5 cable to ground it. Then all my dumps matched!
Maybe u could add this to the tutorial to save anyone else the hassle of geting the dumps to match in the future!
