Well, did a little testing and, sorry boys and girls, but I don't believe its a modified USB port, unless its simply running at a lower voltage because ti powers only a memory card... might be more proprietary like Sonys memcard slots. The pins measure (voltage) from top to bottom with the 360 standing up:
Pin 1 = 0
Pin 2 = 0
Pin 3 = 0
Pin 4 = 3.27 volts
Pin 5 = 0
So there we have it... might be able to somehow figure out how to run a card reader off of it if we can figure out the data pin configuration, but I'm not sure if a normal USB memstick will run off of only 3.3v.
Ok, after another quick test, I've discovered the outer pins are both grounds.
So theoretically the layout is probabley
Pin 1 = Ground
Pin 2 = Data
Pin 3 = Data
Pin 4 = Power
Pin 5 = Ground
The extra yellow wire from the original xbox controller isn't needed because we're only powering a memcard, not an entire controller????
Anyone know how to decipher which data pin goes to plus or minus? Trial and error I guess
If its layed out like a normal port then it should be that pin 3 is - and pin 2 is +
Might try wiring some stuff up to the port and see what happens when I plug in a memstick
oh and heres the link to another thread I started before this one evolved to memcard slots
