What would be the purpose in having one of usb to controller dongle adapters, besides for using a usb memory stick and keyboard? I can't think of a situation where I would want to use my keyboard for a game. Possibly for browsing the net on my XBOX, but I just use my laptop. I also see that you can use a usb stick for memory, but I have memory card for that.

So does anyone know of any other useful thigs these could be for? I have an opportunity to get some, but don't know if they are actually needed for anything.

No you dont need them but thay are nice if you want to type in the name of a folder fast or edit your file manager info, as you said online serching is better with the mouse and keyboard.
The memm sticks give you more space then a memm card.
But you dont need them and you dont need to buy them you can just make some for your xbox. Wink

That's what I figured, but they were only $4. That's worth the trouble not having to rewire the normal ports. Don't you agree? I'm with you, I think I can do without. I was just curous. Seemed like a good deal and thought they might come in handy.

I think I would use it to port over game saves if I was having trouble lol.

They are worth the money rather than hacking up one of your controllers.

No koots thay are not worth it in the long run to me.

And you dont need to hack up a controller if you got some old female usb ports laying around you can solder them to your controller input from the inside and use it as a controller port or usb port.
And you can use the memm card trick and turn your memm card in to a usb port.

thats what i did. I have a bunch of stuff lying around so i made an usb-xbox adapter, real easy. Plus i host halo & halo 2 tourney's and when i need a saved game variant i can jus use the memory card and swap xbox's. It comes in real handy for me.

Thats a good point. I did not think about it that way . Then again I am not great with soldering so I would likely go out and buy one lol.

Its not that bad to solder if you get a usb with wires on it then you just set the wire tip on the solder thats on the controller port and heat it till it sticks.
