Im pulling out the 2 standard USB ports on the front of the 360 and rewiring in a 4 port hub. Its originally an external 4 port hub that I stripped down to the board. The USB connection to the motherboard shouldnt be a problem (using the spots from the 2 port) but I dont know where to solder the power to. The outlet adapter reads:
INPUT: 100-240V~0.5A 50-60Hz
OUTPUT: 5V===2.6A Max. 13W
Can I just solder the power leads to any 5V source on the motherboard? Or can I run wiring for it directly to the PSU solder points? Do I have to worry about the Amp levels? Wire gauge?
Also, I ran into a wiring problem, at a point I initially thought would be no problem at all.
The hub uses a B series plug and jack. To make the setup as small as possible (to make it internal) I removed the jack from the hub board, and used a wiring diagram to solder the USB cable directly to the board. I went to test it with a wired controller to see if it would work, it didnt. (then i plugged the controller directly into the 360 and it didnt work then either but it was fine before the test. I thought i fried it but it works fine now, which i dont understand but i am not complaining)
I searched around a bit online and found another site with a wiring diagram, I think I am reading it right and I think they are different.
I wired it up according to this site, using the diagram and wiring table for series B.
The other site I found:
From what I can tell, usbman.com has a diagram of the CABLE layout, which I would think means the male end (which I see more frequently than the female end, on USB cables, but I could be wrong).
Compare that to the diagram of the end of the plug on the other website. 1-4 wiring around the plug counterclockwise at usbman.com and clockwise for the other site. (of course the wiring for the jack would be the opposite the plug)
I dont know for sure if they are different and I dont know which is right if they are different.
How do i wire this?
Sorry if this is a really obvious question but I have never done this before, does anyone have any experience here that can help me out, I posted at [H]ard|Forum also but have not gotten any further help.
Thanks in advance
