80 wire 40 pin IDE


Recommended Posts

Bought 3 yellows ones on eBay - all garbage - can someone tell me where to buy ones that actually work?  Sitting in front if a modded 500gb SATA original Xbox that I can’t play on a bank holiday weekend is disappointing - any help greatly appreciated.

I am in the same boat.  I purchased a yellow ebay 80 wire ide cable ended up being 15" instead of 24" got refunded.  Seller says keep the cable.  I then figured might as well try re-crimping middle connector to ideal location as in link, https://www.reddit.com/r/originalxbox/comments/8dxepr/i_moved_the_middle_connector_on_an_80wire_ide/ .  Found out the middle connector has no metal terminals what a scam!  Maybe you have the same occurance.  I may have to resort to using a 18" startech ide cable and re-crimp to ideal location.

Will that 18 inch Startech cable fit in the original Xbox?

It kind of fits the problem it the middle connector is in the wrong spot.

you could wait for this one to become available but it might be awhile

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