    Hello again im back with a simple mod that idk why i haven't seen around at all...except for vids but no guides.

    first the xbox 360 already has a normal sata data cable port but the dvd drives power cable is a 12 pin in a cubic form which isnt good if we want to make it work on a pc drive (sata).

    here is the txt based guide:

    Sata POWER black wire goes to pin 7

    Sata POWER red wire goes to pin 12

    Sata POWER black goes to pin 5

    Sata POWER yellow wire goes to pin 8

    the solider or twist wires/pins 6 an 4 together so it thinks its a normal drive eliminating the flashing green light every time the xbox 360 is used.

    Photo guide below:

    complete, wired pic

    all wired and running with it placed on top so i can add a 3.5 sata under it pic


    Thank you for your time MSaki

    !TESTED PLAYS GAMES AND LEGAL BACKUPS! depending on your choice of drive.......
