    Here? Right here? What about, say... over there?
    Can I use a sata to usb connector to connect my slim hdd to a pc instead of using a transfer cable? also could I use a sata to usb connector as a transfer cable on the console itself?

    I've tried it with no success.

    If you want to do it simple, get a transfer cable.
    It's way easier then constantly screwing open the HDD case and fucking around with it.
    Besides their only a couple of quid on ebay so why not pick one up ;]

    Which question are you answering? the one about connecting my hdd to pc or xbox? Because I don't really need to connect it to xbox I can just stick it in. I'm trying to put the emulator partition on a third party drive.

    Both.
    Official ones tend to be the best for both connecting to PC (with various tools) and HDD-XboxHDD transfer.
    Less of an hassle.

    But feel free to try of course.
    I'd still suggest getting a transfer pak, saves you a lot of trouble ;]
