Appendix D: Using USB Devices for SID

The USB -> Xbox Cable

It’s a known fact that the Xbox console uses USB to connect its controllers, however with their fancy adapter that inserts into the Xbox it makes it hard to use a normal USB Device.

You can purchase this cable pre-made from the following stores:
Llama's Adventures (US Store) - Electric Quarter (US Store) - Midwest-Games (US Store)

Alternatively, you get this cable when you purchase the Mega X-Key.

For those of you that wish to build their own cable, below you can see a wiring diagram.



Preparing the USB Device to use with Action Replay

There are a few steps required here, but once it is all done your USB device will always be recognized as an Xbox Action Replay device. This was tested using a Xbox 1.6 and PC running Windows XP Professional.

  • Plug your USB Device into the PC and let it be recognized.
  • Right-Click on My Computer, and select Properties.
  • Navigate to the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.

Now, this is where the fun starts…

  • This screenshot shows the Device Manager, what we are looking for is the USB Mass Storage Device which you just plugged in to the PC (the line highted in Red in the screenshot). Double-click on it.



  • Navigate to the Details tab where you will find the VID and PID for your USB device. You will need to take note of these for later. The screenshot below shows you where you can find them: So in this example, the VID is 0781 and the PID is 5151.



  • The next thing you need to do is edit the xbreader.inf file (the Action Replay Drive rwhich can be found in the folder called Drivers where Action Replay is installed. I suggest making a copy of this folder and editing it rather than editing the original.

Open the xbreader.inf file with Notepad, and look for this section of code:

[_Devices] 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_05FD&PID_DBAE 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_05FD&PID_0316 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_045E&PID_0280 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_045E&PID_0381 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_0738&PID_4507 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_040B&PID_6520 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_05E3&PID_8001 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_05FD&PID_9011&REV_0100 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_05FD&PID_9001&REV_0100

You need to add a line to this section with the VID and PID you collected earlier.
For example, this is what I used for my Sandisk 256mb Cruzer Micro:

[_Devices] 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_0781&PID_5151 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_05FD&PID_DBAE 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_05FD&PID_0316 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_045E&PID_0280 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_045E&PID_0381 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_0738&PID_4507 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_040B&PID_6520 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_05E3&PID_8001 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_05FD&PID_9011&REV_0100 
%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_05FD&PID_9001&REV_0100
  • Navigate to the Driver tab on the window where you got your PID/VID information, and select Update Driver.



  • This takes you to the Hardware Update Wizard, where you load your modified Action Replay Driver into Windows. Use these options in this order to install the Driver to your PC.

- Do not connect to Windows Update to search for software, Press Next.
- Install the driver from a specific location, Press Next.
- Don’t search, choose a driver to install, Press Next.
- Press the Have Disk button.
- Press Browse to the location where your modified Driver is. Then Press OK.
- Select the MaxDrive Xbox Driver, Press Next.

The driver should now install itself to Windows.
Once the installation is successful, remove the USB Device.

Here are some screenshots of this process.







* Restart the Device Manager and plug in your USB Device.
It should now show up as a USBIO controlled device.
