Can I replace a faulty hard drive ribbon cable?

I have an xbox 360 s that will not read the 250 gb hard drive that came with it. I've tested the hard drive in another unit and it is functional.

Since the console itself is functional, as is the hard drive, I'm guessing that it may be a faulty hard drive ribbon cable. Does anyone know a. where I could get one? b. How intensive the replacement would be? I'm not an expert by any means, but I am capable of basic computer repair/part replacement.

Disclaimer: I don't know the machine.

Looking at pictures:

It's a tedious disassembly.

You get to the drive-works here:

Sometimes cables get tarnished, just need a wiggle and a stern glare.

The drive is standard SATA data+power, the motherboard end of the data appears to be standard SATA but VERY short, and the power side runs off as 4 yellow wires to a propietary plug.

The optic-drive cables are readily available but does not use quite the same connector.

The length and the non-standard power end mean you should be looking for a part made FOR this machine and for the hard-drive. However I'm not seeing any for sale. Good luck.

Uh, the console should be covered under warranty - no xbox 360 Ss are over a year old.

Just send it back.

Unless you took it apart for some reason.

Just a project piece.

Brianne, if you are not going to send if for "Console repair needs to be completed at our Microsoft Service Center" from here http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox... if it is still covered under warranty, then I think it is time to take it apart :-). Who knows what you will find. May be just a loose connection. I am sure we can find a HDD cable if you need it.

Finally found a website that sells the cables! consolewerks.co.uk However. Something that just occurred to me. The xbox doesn't even recognize the 4 GB of internal memory that comes standard. Am I possibly off base about this cable issue altogether? Maybe I should just open it up and take a peek. Sigh.

yup, that is what you should be doing. Right now you are guessing about what to buy. Take a good look at things first, then determine what to purchase. Otherwise you are creating a money pit that quickly will become an economical fiasco....:-)
