Introduction: Clean and EASY Conversion Original Xbox Controller to Usb

Picture of Clean and EASY Conversion Original Xbox Controller to Usb

Hi!

The original xbox controller is very well made, and it has a usb 1.1 tip, but with the shape to work only with the xbox console. 
Like many others, this is a guide to put an USB tip on that good controller, so you can use on your pc/notebook. BUT, here is the great news: this time you WILL NOT NEED SOLDERING! The final result will be very clean, look very well made, and your controller will not be open/modified. You will work just on an external piece.

So, how to do it and what you will need:

* a little scissor or something similar 
*  the xbox 360 USB Breakaway Cable ( less than 3 dolars on ebay, doesn't need to be original!)

How to do it:

After your breakaway 360 cable arrive, you will notice that the breakaway cable IS VERY SIMILAR to the original xbox controller breakaway cable, and just need a little removing/sanding on the plastic side borders (I did it with a little serrated scissor, but a normal scissor can do it too).
You will sand for about 1 milimeter on both sides (as marked on the picture), and you should sand until it fits on the controller.

Works on Nyko Airflow too !!
