    Yup, you can either buy one or make your own. Its not hard at all, and the result is amazing. Its a great controller and it works rather well on the PC. It has a few other advantages as well. Highly recommended.

    Its a simple case of wiring the Xbox pad to a standard USB connector, they use basically the same wires :)

    Then its a case of finding some Drivers for it. Ive got some that work pretty well, all the buttons function and you have FF too, but there quite old so I dont know if there is a newer set out.

    You can use it to transfer files from a PC to your Xbox, such as save games etc.

    May I suggest, if you don't want to risk damaging a controller, you consider buying some of the cheap cable extenders, and cut them in half. They are only 3 for £5 and means you can still use the pad on an Xbox.
