Team Avalaunch Xbox360 SATA Adapter

Posted by Xavier Ashe on April 3, 2006

Here are some shots we received of another Xbox 360
Harddrive SATA adapter currently in development by the guys at Team
Avalaunch(info).
The small PCB will allow you to connect your Xbox 360 HD on your PC
without removing it from its case. You'll notice that for the
connection to the Xbox 360 HD and for the PC SATA data-cable they used
simple tracks/lines on the PCB. For the power there are 2 options:
either a mini-B USB port (like used on PSP or many digital cams for
example) so you can power the Xbox 360 HD with a cable from your PC's
USB port (data will still go over SATA, this is no SATA-to-USB device)
or you can power the HD via a standard 5v pin (like you can find on
many electronic devices like the connector to recharge your PSP for
example). There will also be adapters for both small and large HD power
connectors to get power from the PC PSU.
The public/retail release
is expected just after easter. There's no final price yet, but they are
working on getting an as low as possible retail price.
