UPDATE: i got the stuff in the mail yesterday. the ide cables are the exact length of the oem cable and look great. they would especially look good in a clear or translucent case. i haven't tried them yet(i intend to soon) so i don't know about their performance. the new feet are made of a flexible plastic so they won't have the anti-slip properties of the rubber feet. they also have no adhesive on them so u will have to supply your own.  the controller to usb adapter is a VERY snug fit in the controller. it works but it will be very hard to remove. i tried removing it with needle nose pliers but stopped trying because i was afraid i would damage something. i'll try to give an update on the ide cables when i install one. they appear to be the perfect replacement. if u have any questions then please feel free to ask.

Here is how my eBay 80way IDE cables look and notice the 4 pin power connector now has the wires exiting downward from the chinse Sata2Ide with a 3D printed insulator.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

UPDATE 2: i just installed the new ide cable and it works perfectly. highly recommended. it is identical in length to the oem cable.

hey dave. i was actually thinking about tagging u in one of my updates. i highly recommend these chimeric ide 80-pin cables. i stretched it out beside a stock ide cable and it was identical in length and spacing of the connecters. i also think the dark gray color looks better. it seems to have good flexibility too. the new feet and memory card port-to-usb controller adapter work very well too.

      i have recently been playing xmen: legends on my hard modded xbox. this is the 1st time i have done this. i have played this game through many times and i have noticed a couple glitches that i have never seen before. this is the first time i have ever played it from the hdd on a hard modded xbox. this is also the 1st time i have ever played it through on a v1.4 xbox. most of the times in the past were on my v1.6 and once on a v1.0. both used the disc. so i'm not certain if it is that i am playing it for the 1st time from the hdd or that i'm playing from a v1.4 xbox for the 1st time. thoughts?

      I've got a 1.1 XBOX, made October 2002. I soft modded it using Rocky5 files and then did a TSOP flash with EVO X with F & G. All went well and I next tried to upgrade the HDD from the stock one to a Segate 2TB after upgrading the IDE cable to 80 wire one. I tried the first adapter from the top of the picture you see below but the XBOX didn't see the HDD, so then I tried the second adapter (middle one). The XBOX saw the HDD and HeXen 2018 loaded up from disc, it installed all the dash/app files, then usex XB Partioner to split F & G into equal sizes 926GB (approx if I recall from memory).
      At this point everything was going well and the XBOX would boot fine into dash, I even managed to transfer some games and then started installing XBMC and some emulators, during this the XBOX seemed to freeze and not respond. I rebooted the XBOX but it kept giving me error 7 and sometimes error 9. I tried everything possible including formatting the hard drive on the PC and reconnecting, tried other hard drives but all gave the same result. I then tried the first adapter from the top and the XBOX would boot but won't run anything from the DVD drive.
      Finally I bought the third IDE to SATA adapter, third one at the bottom of the picture and this arrived today This sadly has not changed the outcome and I continued now to get error 7 with all 3 different adapters
      With all this mentioned, the XBOX boots fine into dashboard with the original hard drive and current EVO X BIOS flash. I've also tried all jumper settings on both second and third adapter that has jumper pins.
      At this point I'm lost to what is the problem, could I just possibily ended up with 3 bad Chinese IDE to SATA adapters? I've ordered StarTech.com 40-Pin IDE PATA to SATA Adapter Converter and this will land in the next day or two for me to test.
      Any input on this would be appreciated.

      So, I'm an old man and I can't remember how I flashed this XBox years ago. I have an Aladdin XT Plus2 with Evox +3935 and M8plus_16 fan 40.06 (not sure what size bios that is). I wrote a 2TB image to a drive and get an error telling me to upgrade to LBA48 ver 2. Can someone point me in the right direction. I do have FTP access to the box.
