Hi All

 

Trying to save a little money..

 

I have a miniusb cable with a female end and a spare Arnova cable. Is it possible to take the female of the miniusb cable and replace the male usb end on the Arnova cable with it?

 

If so what is the correct way to rewire it as am aware that it has to be reversed to work correctly??

Regards

Lohtse

I already answered on this other thread, but I am copying it here, so we can follow:

 

I found this thread on XDA on how to make an USB host cable:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1214241

I'll try to give it a shot and make some more documentation when I have time.

I'll open one of mine soon and will compare.

is it worth the hassle?
the thing is just 2 bucks
http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-Female-5Pin-Mini-B-Plug-Gender-Male-Cable-/330469347232?pt=AU_Components&hash=item4cf1820fa0
and if you really want to save - you can just use the regular mini b to male a that comes with the device with a gender converter for just 1.45
