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?

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

Inside door number 1 where Carol Merril is standing.

They're called breakaway cables.

http://www.amazon.com/MADCATZ-MOV...B00009W5WB

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
