Default Wired xbox 360 controller for original xbox?

Is there a way to plug my wired xbox 360 controller for windows into my original xbox that my friend just gave me?

Yeah, the original Xbox uses basically the same cords as USB, but with a different plug. You can easily splice the 360 wire and a regular controller cord together.

Like this, except you're splicing USB with the Xbox, not the Xbox with USB:

Only splice the end connector that has the USB on it.

Then you can buy an extension cord that plugs into that for $5 instead of buying a whole new controller.

No...I meant he could just splice the one he already has, and then buy one of those to replace it.

But that would work too.

Nope. I tried. I bought one of those Xbox controller port to USB adapters and tried it on my Xbox 360 pad and it doesn't work. The ring of light on the controller flashes once and it goes off. After that, nothing happens.
