    If you modify something your void the warranty for it.  Also, the old xbox controllers have a different button scheme than the 360 so I do not believe it would work.

    He wants to put a 360 wired controller on an original XBOX. There's no longer any warranty on an original XBOX and a wired controller is not only inexpensive, its warranty is only 90 days.
    Also, the old xbox controllers have a different button scheme than the 360 so I do not believe it would work.
    It's not just that. The original XBOX controller is essentially a USB hub with three downstream devices - two MU slots and the controller itself.

     

    Not sure why he'd want to use a 360 controller with an original XBOX. S-type XBOX controllers are pretty common and less expensive than a wired 360 controller.

    i read that LB and RB work as White and Black buttons when playing original xbox games on the 360.  plus if you already have a wired 360 controller then why would you want to buy anything extra.  some people just like to try things.  i found a pinout for usb to xbox1 and i am going to try and do exactly what the original post is asking.  i will connect the 360 controller to an old original xbox.  i'll post back when i have the results, but i have a feeling it might not work.  worth a shot though as the wiring is very simple.  it would be the same as using that adapter.

    They are not interchangeable they both go into USB ports but totally different.
