    I get an error on almost every block. What is the problem?

    Cable setup is messed up somewhere. Wires touching, points bridged, and so on. Triple check everything and make sure nothing is touching each other. If you soldered the wire into the hole on the motherboard then flip it over and make sure that they are not bridging each other on the bottom of the board.

    Are the resistors soldered directly to the motherboard?

    Also is the diode soldered directly to the motherboard? Is it facing the correct way?

    Ok, now did you solder the resistors to go inside the hole on the motherboard or did you just put a ball of solder on them and solder it ontop of the point?

    You need to use resistors. Otherwise you are putting the 360 and computer at risk of damaging each other.

    But do resistors fix the error problems?

    Give me a sec I will post a pic of my set up

    Most likely yes it will fix your issue. You do not have the lpt cable setup correctly which is why you are getting errors. Set it up with the resistors and diode and you will be set.

    Not sure if its ok to use that. But from the picture it looks like you have the diode on the wrong spot

    Yeah its hard to see but I double checked it and it is. So can you buy an lpt cable with db25 end that will open?

    What I did was cut a lpt cable. Then used a multimeter to find out what wire goes where and then cut the unneeded wires. Then put resistors on the end of the wires except for the one that needed the diode.

    Don't think you will find a cable that lets you open the end of it anymore.

    Do you think I could cut the lpt cable housing so i could just match the wire to the corresponding pin?
