Here's something even easier that I just whipped up in MS Paint (no soldering required whatsoever):
NOTE: The cable in this image is called a 'Female SATA to Male eSATA' cable.
You can buy these cables here:http://www.cooldrives.com/esexcaitolex.htmlhttp://www.cablemax.com/detail/index.cfm?nPID=72688http://www.satacables.com/

That's the HDD caddy connector that is found inside the HDD caddy. It makes the conversion from Microsofts custom sata+power to a standard sata 7 pin + 15 pin power plug found on sata hard drives. You need that to connect to the HDD plug on the 360 in order to plug that red sata cable into if you want to go solderless.
In his picture he removed the connector entirely from the HDD caddy enclosure. If you goto the post he mentioned where Casper shows the tutorial of modding the caddy for external esata you will see picture of where I connected to that same connector within the caddy.
Here's my picture where it comes from inside the HDD caddy.
I have looked everywhere so far for something like that but it seems getting the male end of the sata here in UK is very hard.
I currently am using a sata extension cable which doesn't really fit well at all with the clip removed. I am using external power for the HDD right now but I would love to use my esata case.
Where can I find a Male sata to male esata which you showed in your post Lurkin that I can get in the UK, or even shipped here.
