Re: Programs for CP9xx / rewiring cables

Hi Davis, Hi Per.

To sumurarize, please find below the usb/serial Nikon connector pinning.

I suppose we only need to connect the 3 first pins (starting from the upper left). The second gnd is probably interconnect with the other inside the coolpix.

David i'm really interested by your idea to have a dual usb - serial cable.

On my side, i'm thinking about a solution to create an "home made" connector with only 3 pins and certainly a design a little bit worth than the Nikon one.
If i find something i will give you more explanations.

Great picture of MrBlueTit on the ruler!

By the way, the plug on the camera end of the USB cable does
have all the pins and solder tags in it so after some removing
of the inside epoxy/plastic/glue stuff it should be possible to make
a dual purpose cable. I will post some pictures when I'm further
along. The outer "pretty" plastic shell can be split on one side
and opened like a clam shell - it is some inner molded plastic
"tar" that is a bit more troublesome but I'm making progress.
