    I've seen a lot of these sorts of videos for an Xbox 360, but all of them involve soldering wires and such to the DVD drive, which I've heard people get banned from. So a thought struck me; could you wire the LEDs to the USB ports in the back of the Xbox? That way Microsoft, assuming they do monitor Xbox voltage (which i dont think they do, but being on the safe side) wouldn't know what was plugged into the USB port, the LEDs would be easily removable, and you'd still have some fancy lighting. Do you think this is viable? Also, where did you get the LED strip?
