How the hell do u install these on? I ordered 2
Mar 30 2004, 10:55 PM
you just plug it into a controller port
Mar 30 2004, 10:58 PM
uhh its not really... compatible? the adaptor is like a female USB port with a slot or something
Mar 30 2004, 11:06 PM
Yeah....that's what you plug your usb device into....the other end is just like a controller plug....
Mar 30 2004, 11:09 PM
Mar 30 2004, 11:18 PM
its not a controller plug it has nothing at the ohter end
Mar 30 2004, 11:20 PM
So you're telling me that it's just a usb port and a wire that just ends? Have you already received this, or is it a picture you're looking at?
If it's just wires on the end, then, first off, they sent you a really cheap product, and secondly, you just have to wire it up to the matching wires of a controller port inside.
Mar 30 2004, 11:22 PM
There are no wires, it looks like a small slot thing, like the one on a gfx card
Mar 30 2004, 11:37 PM
Hahaha, it sounds like they sent you a pc usb card. So it's on a pci card? That's funny. Take a picture so we can be sure. But it sounds like they sent you some surplus usb cards just for the ports. You can still use them, you just have to disconnect the ports and wire them up to the xbox. Need a pic to make sure and explain what to do, though, as there are several different kinds.
Mar 30 2004, 11:49 PM
i dont have a camera but the end has 2 green slits on one side, and 3 green slits on the other
Mar 30 2004, 11:52 PM
maybe its the breakaway connector at the end...
Mar 30 2004, 11:53 PM
No idea what you're talking about.
Mar 30 2004, 11:57 PM
u know the light green ridges on a PCI card that goes along the bottom of the card? well those are on this thing, and 2 of ridges are on one side of the card, and 3 on the other
Mar 31 2004, 12:17 AM
LMAO thats also known as being ripped off. A USB adapted has 1 usb plug on one end and then the xbox plug on ther other
Mar 31 2004, 12:21 AM
Mar 31 2004, 12:31 AM
IT still doesnt help there isnt a damn picture......
Mar 31 2004, 12:40 AM
Ok basically it looks like a MINI PCI card, with a USB adaptor freakin soldered onto it
Mar 31 2004, 12:53 AM
does it look like this:http://secure.llamma.com/catalog/product_i...&products_id=81
or maybe something different?
IF its the first just plug it into the short cord that goes from the xbox to the long cord on the controller
Mar 31 2004, 01:39 AM
O got it the inline release thank you guys so much

Mar 31 2004, 01:57 AM
Mar 31 2004, 02:35 AM
no im serious it goes into the inline release slot
Mar 31 2004, 02:44 AM
WTF are you talking about an inline release slot? ou mean you plug the thing into your xbox controller port and those 2 tabs sticking out touch the metal things in the port?
Mar 31 2004, 07:03 PM
Yeah, I know what you're talking about, but wtf? How could you not figure that out? And what the hell are you talking about with this pci card thing? I am never going to try to help you again.
Mar 31 2004, 09:25 PM
i have no idea either
Mar 31 2004, 09:27 PM
do you even have linux?
Mar 31 2004, 09:40 PM
this thread never was going anywhere since the 1st post.
you got ripped off by modwhiz man.
Mar 31 2004, 10:37 PM
to bad i didnt get ripped off since i tried it on Gentoo Linux
Mar 31 2004, 11:00 PM
You still don't make any sense.
Mar 31 2004, 11:04 PM
in the breakaway its the same connection but withcout the ground shielding thats what hes talkin about that acuallymakes a lot of sense
Mar 31 2004, 11:52 PM
i dont get you kid help us out explain yourself
Apr 1 2004, 12:21 AM
ok, take the male end of your breakaway cable, now imagine it w/o the metal ground piece around it, that's what he got. So it looks like a plug with 3 metal plates on one side and 2 on the other...
Apr 1 2004, 12:35 AM
yea, thatd make more sense now
Apr 1 2004, 12:59 AM
And so in other words, it is NOTHING AT ALL like a pci card.
Apr 1 2004, 01:05 AM
Apr 1 2004, 01:08 AM
its not a PCI card, i said it looks like a mini PCI card, because there are metal strips, which hook up to the slot
Anyways, i got them working so ....
Apr 1 2004, 01:08 AM
Rush346, Thanks for staying in school and explaining to us in understandable english.
CheULT, you still got ripped off. Missing some minor parts, but you still got jipped. and why are you wasting time on this when you can be in school?
