Interface 380 HDD with your PC with ease

By Justin Mann on March 31, 2006, 12:06 PM
Console modding has a huge following, for various reasons. Whenever someone finds some loophole or trick you can do to make a console purr louder, rest assured thousands more will want to try it, and for a mere $15, you can attach SATA cables to your Xbox 360 for the purpose of plugging its internal HDD into a PC. Engadget is selling the device that allows you to do it and, while not pretty, is very functional plug and play, almost. Though its usefulness is debatable, it is selling like hotcakes and for $15, the future potential uses are worth it. Very interesting stuff.

What the hell is a SATA connector doing in the back of the Xbox 360? They want people to try things with it or what?

It should be an easy job, it's a PCB and two connectors. The hardest part is to cut the PCB to fit in the plug, but it seems not too hard to do. Just need some staples inkjet photopaper, an unetched board, ferric chloride, a laser printer, a computer and a steam iron...
