there are two usb ports on the front of the xbox just to the right(or below, depending on how you have your xbox sitting) the disc tray...they are hidden behind a little folding cover but you can just push it back and plug them in...the cover is meant to keep dust and stuff out...there is also a port on the back of the xbox that you can plug them into...

I see two memory slots under the disc drive and then a port where I used to plug my wireless charger into. I cant plug the controller into either of these as the end of the cable is round. What am I doing wrong?

Do you have your 360 standing up or laying flat?

The 360 controllers are usb, if the plug is round they arent 360 controllers

Sounds like you're missing the USB end of the wire.

They're called breakaway cables.

ebay 1 [ebay.com]

ebay 2 [ebay.com]

The gamestop isn't available online, but you might be able to find one in a store. The amazon is from additional sellers. The ebay ones are just two examples. Just do a search for "breakaway cable xbox 360" and look around. Hope this helps
