Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Wiring of serial port for video device connection

Trying to replace the serial connector on the wire that connect the foot pedals to the steering wheel for an XBox game. My boy cut off the old 9-pin connector and I picked up another one at Radio Shack, however, I'm not sure where the 4 (red, green, white, and black) wires go in the 9-pin connector. It appears that looking inside the steering device (as much as I could do), that there are four wires connecting to the four ports on the 9-pin and maybe one more wire connecting to the one of the 5-pin side of the connector. I don't know if this helps, however, thought I would share it. Thank you.

Xbox Controller to USB Conversion


Did you know the Xbox controller has a USB interface built-in? How would you feel about playing your favorite PC games, with an Xbox controller?

Here is what you will need to get the job done:
  • Xbox Game Controller
  • Male USB Connector
  • Wire Strippers
  • Electrical Tape

1. Using a Male-Female USB extension cable, cut off the male USB adapter, along with a foot or more of cable.

2. You will need to cut off the connector on the Xbox cable, too.

3. Cut the Xbox connector off right at the base, leaving you some room to splice on the USB Male connector.

4. Now strip off about an inch of casing from the end of each exposed cable that we’ll be connecting. There will be a lot of thin silver wires and foil wrapped around a few smaller, colored wires. The silver casing is the shielding, just trim it back enough to expose the colored wires.

5. Using your wire strippers, pull away the casing on each of the colored wires to expose the bare wire.

6. Splice together each wire of the USB adapter to its matching colored wire on the Xbox controller. The Xbox controller has an additional yellow wire, which you can ignore. Use electrical tape to cover up the bare leads, or heat shrink tubing.

7. You should now be able to set up the device and start using it. The first thing to do is to download the XBCD drivers (download here), and run the installer file.

8. Once the drivers are installed, plug in the controller and it should detect and install the drivers for “XBCD XBox Gamepad”. Now go to Programs -> XBCD -> Setup Utility and set up your new gamepad!

Hi! What cable/adapter should I buy so I can use foot pedal in my laptop using USB? Foot pedal is 9-pin, used for transcription. Thank you.


Hi,

The following link should meet the requirements assuming your existing cable is defective.

Wiring separated from 9 pin female Rs-232c serial adapter


strip off an inch on both ends of the wiring you are trying to connect. Connect each wire with the same color. Example if the 9 pin side wire is yellow/blue then the other end needing to be connected will need to be yellow/blue. Twist them together and use a terminal splicer to fastened and protect them from touching each other. Do this until all wires are spliced together color for color.

Steering Wheel


It seems that you have a huge problem. This wheel only connects to a 15 pin game port, newer computers do not have the game port. You have to buy a 15 pin to USB converter, about $30.

And with no pedals?
