Well there are 2 other ports on the 360. two in front and one in back. you could buy a powered splitter to run more than two usb devices on the same hub.

I have an xbox 360 theres power to the lead but no power coming on the xbox itself,any ideas please?

Check for a broken USB port. There are 2 in front and 1 in the rear.
If there are any broken prongs touching it will not power on....assuming you are getting power beyond your power supply.

Is the light changin colors on your power supply brick once you press teh power button?

2 problems loss of power a xbox 360 console

Check to see if any prongs are touching or bent in the USB ports. When the USB port prongs are bent they sometimes wind up touching the receiver tips of where the USB makes contact with any devices that you plug in. If they are bent just bend them up so they arent touching the metal receivers and that should solve the no power to xbox360.

My Xbox will not turn on AT ALL.

Well the first thing you do is buy a Zebra named Ted. Once you do that you also buy a llama named Tina that will be Ted's friend. Then you lather them both in a mixture of baby oil and hot sauce, and slide them inside your xbox!!! It will work!!!

Usb replacement for the xbox 360

To save you all the bother of replacing the usb ports, did you know that there is another usb port on the back of the console above the ethernet port, I would just use that one.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

I cant get a connection with the xbox and the standard controller

The usb ports are soldered onto the mainboard and would require quite a bit of technical knowlege to replace. You are stuck with wireless controllers and batteries. There are charging stations for xbox 360 controllers on ebay. Most 360's have a USB port on the back above the network port. You could charge with that one. Good Luck

My xbox 360 isn't tuning on i press the button and

It might do when you say you have broken the USB port there could be a short which is preventing the Console from turning on. Mske sure none of the pins are touching one another but make sure you turn off the console so you dont do any more damage,.

Front usb port of xbox looks broken, unit does nothing now

Simple. Just solved it with advice from this site. If you see any of the gold prongs touching the side (or possibly each other) then find a thing tool and try to hook the gold prongs so they point direct upwards. how bad they get bent doesnt matter, just get them all standing up and not touching the sides. you probably cant use the port again but atleast it turns on.

My xbox won't turn on

hey guys i was freakin out because i had that same problem.  i didnt want to pay an extra 1000$ just because the stupid repair guys wouldnt tell me the answer.  So look inside your broken usb port, there should be like golden prongs in there.  if they are bent, straighten them and you can turn your xbox back on.  Now this might not be the case with you, but that is how i just solved my problem.  if you have any questions ill try to keep posted and see if i can help further. also you can get me at my gamertag for xbox live.  its volcomxskater37
