USB powered computer fan for Xbox360

I'm building a Gaming computer desk and have built a place for my xbox360 to go under my monitor which will require fans to keep it xtra cool to avoid the dreaded red rings of death. I would love to be able to get power somehow from my 360 i have a 120mm comp fan and tons of extra USB cables. I seen a post where someone used a batt operated fan and connected it to a USB. Will the same concept work? Do i risk damage to my 360? Thanx! Ray

How To use a Xbox360 controller on a PS3?

So guys, I was wondering there is any way to use a wired Xbox 360 on a PS3, without any adapter? Maybe unlocking the PS3? Searching the web I found some ways to use the Xbox controller on a PS3, but all of them have to use an adapter.

PLEASE HELP guide me on how to fix my xbox 360 disc drive

A few months i changed the disc drive in my xbox360.Everything was great, it played all the games ect. Until last month, when i saw an article on the xbox magazine#127 that picked my curiosity. I bought the magazine went home and put the xbox game disc in. At first it read;"" Update In Progress. Applying Update"".  10 seconds later, it read: ""System Update Failed.   Status Code; 22FB-335A-B800-0402-C000-0001"" Since then, every time i turn it on it says the same thing and freezes on that screen I went online and over the phone with xbox and the answer i got was to "buy an other one" If someone can help me, i have the 360 open and ready to be worked on. Thank you very much to all!

How to Avoid the Red Ring of Death, and other Xbox 360 Problems

I don't have an Xbox 360, and I probably never will, but for anybody who owns one, their worst nightmare is the Red Ring of Death. There are several causes for the Red Ring of Death, this forum topic is here for people to post how they have managed to avoid it and other 360 problems, including overheating. If I get enough ideas, I may post a Collaboration. If you post an idea, make it as detailed as possible, and if you can, with pictures.

How do I fix an XBOX360's laser diode lens? Answered

My brother has 3 XBOX360's (don't ask me why), and he says two of his three XBOX360s are broken because the lens of the laser diode (or whatever it's called) is broken. Is there anyway to fix it without getting a new XBOX360 and try to keep it as cheap as possible. Aslo, we do have a source of soldering and both of the XBOX's are opened up and have no casing on at this moment (but we still have the casing, just in a box in our 1st floor).

Is it possible to split the picture from a game console, so that it plays on 2(or more) display (tv,lcd)? Answered

I want ot set up a system to play games on my 360 with my friends that will allow us to use 1 xbox360 to display on 2 or more tvs. Or can a console display be run through a computer? I know that it can be done with computers and i have seen "walls" of tvs in clubs that all have a combined picture, but i am trying to do this relatively cheap.  the "cardboard on part of the screen" idea has come to mind but i was hoping for something a little higher tech.   My team has split the gaming market, one of us has a ps3, myself an x360 and one a wii.  Thank you for your input and any help that you might be able to give me.  Happy Holidays.

A Puzzle featuring Xbox 360, a powerbook g4, and Connect360

Hi Everyone,I use a 12" powerbook g4 as a wireless adaptor for my xbox 360 (as shown here: I would like to use Connect360 ( to stream music and movies from my current computer onto the xbox 360. However, connect360 cannot see my xbox 360, and I suspect that is because it looks like a powerbook on the network, not an xbox 360, because it is using the powerbook's network connection. Is there anything i can do about this? This seemed like enough of a tweaking/hacking how-to that someone here might like to try it, or at least have ideas of how to go about it.Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Instructable idea: the Frankenbox 360

Ok, I'm working on something, and before I go through the trouble of writing an -ible for it, I would like to get a good idea of what kind of interest there is in it. I recently came into a free bricked xbox 360 (shocking I know, those are SO hard to come by.....) so, I have harvested a few parts, and am modifying my old xbox that had a bad habit of overheating by putting another of the larger heatsinks in xbox's over the gpu, changing the shape of the fan duct to accommodate the larger heatsink, and will putt the cd drive on top of the case, run the wires inside, and hook another set of the original fans to a 12v power supply and mount a switch on the case. This thing will be hideous, beautiful and will tell heat just where to go. :) So, What does everyone think??

I broke my 360's power birck

Ya the title says it all, I fried a power brick, I was playing around and I must have shorted something I shouldn't have. It was very strange Instaid of the normal routine where bridging the 5vSB and PwrEnable starts the brick and un-bridging them turn it off. It stayed on and now the 5vSB line no longer produces any voltage. I can start the brick with an external power source to the PwrEnable line, but since the brick is under 0 load it immediately shuts off to protect itself from overloading. Plus It is a huge inconvenience to use an external power source to keep the brick on. My suspicion is a regulator very close to the 5vSb line, I think I may have fried that but I'm not entirely sure because I'm bad with regulators. Does anybody know a possible solution to this?   P.S. Don't give me a reply saying "buy a new brick" because that isn't the kind of person I am and I have a hunch that there is only one or two components that are bad so I'd like to save this brick if I can :)

The massivly long details for Chromehounds: Tribute Edition

Unless you've seen my original post, go to These are my basic ( and many ideas about the game) IDEA 1 : Rebuild::: ---------------------------------------------     I will probably start with this then move to idea 2, or I could base the project on the original and release the beta, then I'll add an expansion to include the original tutorial missions in the final. --------------------------------------------- IDEA 2: Sequeal::: ---------------------------------------------    This would be based 20 years after the Neroimus Wars, about 2040 (something like that, still working on it). Rafzakael has stopped operations leaving mercenaries scattered throughout the region. The peace that lasted after the wars was short lived, due to imperialistic moves by all three nations. The second Neroimus War starts after Morskovian forces attack a Sal Kar Village and a Tarakian patrol receives an incorrect order and destroys a Morskovian patrol. New advances in technology allows hounds to be stronger, take more damage, but these changes are countered by even more powerful weapons. Features: - Unidentified Weapons (M99, MSK-X0, Ghalib) can end up on the same battlefield and are a tad more common. (still once per war) - Experimental weapons will actually work - In ranked matches it's possible to lose parts (up for debate) - That stupid news feature it shows at the beginning will be accessible only through a menu. - Some current day weapons (Railguns, guided missiles, etc. But these will be limited by extreme weight, power, and cool-down time). - Some requested parts (TBD (to be determined)) - "Modded" parts (trade offs on certain parts; higher power for more heat, or more damage for less range and such) - Preserves tactical feel and maybe some HUD modifications - PC only for the time being. It's a major pain to get stuff on the Xbox. - A website where people can share their hound set ups and download them to the game. - New stat system for hounds and parts. - Multiplayer (can't give many details yet, probably LAN at first, but I'll see what I can do with UDK) - Variable weather on some maps - Also some new multiplayer maps. - Maps will still be basic to help out lower powered computers - Low spec mode will be able to be used. - A Java based utility app will be included(includes squad rankings, scores, parts that you have, also includes a builder so you can build hounds while the battle is finishing). - Online sync for parts so cheaters can't get free parts. - Possibly some kind of tournament that's run (maybe ever 2-3 months, to be voted) - "Death Cam" lets you watch your allies while your dead, rather than running around with a useless assault rifle. - Other ideas/ concepts can be requested and voted on, and any of these ideas can be voted on also. --------------------------------------------- That's about all I have for now, it will be about march when I release the final (sooner if I can get community help). --------------------------------------------- Help wanted:: --------------------------------------------- - Screenshots - 3-d models - Voices - Sounds - Maps (made in UDK please) - Ideas/ concepts - Storyline - Practically anything else attributed to the game. --------------------------------------------- Websites:: --------------------------------------------- - (great for part/ game info) - The main site for now. - Secondary site for updates - Yet another site I post on. ------------------------------------------- Whew.... /rant  -Nerdman234 Chromehounds is not my original idea, Sega and From Software created it. I am merely recreating it.
