    Need help with usb mini-b connection

    I had a logitech orbit mp up until my dog chewed off the mini-b usb plug. I'm getting around to try to fix it now, but I hit a snag. I threw away the remnants of the green ribbon thing that connected the camera board to the usb plug. I've been scouring the internet trying to find something that might indicate the pinout for this thing. I figure I could buy this - http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/pro...oducts_id=8401 and get it sort of working again if I could figure the pinout.

    Does anyone have any insight? I've attached a picture of the guts.

    It looks like this page has what you need:

    That image appears to have six pads on it. I'm used to a 4 or 5 pin device... Probably best to trace the paths.

    See, that's the thing that has me stumped - the 6 pads. I've tried tracing it, but I have to admit that I really have no clue about what does what. From what I can tell, 3 and 6 connect in the back with a capacitor between them and 6 being at the end.

    Code:
    |1-2-3-4-5-6|
         |     |
         O-C47-O
    That's sort of what it would look like if you were looking through it, not necessarily with it flipped over. The O's are the holes that pass through the board and C47 is the cap.


    Jes1510, I had been to that site already and couldn't find anything to clear up the 6-pad nonsense on this board. Thanks for looking, though!
