Can anyone suggest the part to replace the serial ports on my XBox 360 Phat (Falcon)? The interior pins are broken. Searched DigiKey without success. The USB ports are the silver rectangular box at right front of the following picture. Much obliged.

surely they have them, they are available through any electronics parts distributor ... a very common replacement part

obviously you didn't search too hard ;) :)
here's one version from them

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I already have parts such as you suggest. What I need is that entire silver rectangular housing holding the dual USB ports. It does not appear that I can open that to get at the interior. There is a plate on one side that can come off with some persuasion, but getting at the parts inside will be quite a challenge. Anybody have any experience with these things?

The USB metal enclosure is designed for microsoft. I doubt you will find any with the same size metal housing. You can of course replace them with standard USB replacements as linked to by @davenn but they will have a smaller metal profile/housing.
Buy a broken xbox board from Ebay if you want the exact same USB profile/housing.

This is cheap as chips. Just message the seller and ask if the USBs are intact.
