    Smartboard USB lead

    Hello all,

    On the back of a Smartboard there's the main circuit board which powers the LED (Red, Orange, Green), but also where the USB cable connects via a USB type A male to type B female as illustrated below:

    Typically the wire is approx. 20cm in length, but all I can find is the above image which won't fit.

    You'd then plug in a standard USB type A male to B male, or in other words a printer cable. If anyone can find a USB type A male to type B female, there's a virtual pint waiting for you!

    Or just make your own. Cut the ends off the cables you need. Solder and heatshrink.

    Thanks for all the replies guys! I did think about a USB type A male to type A male. In theory this should work, but the only way of disconnecting is from the back of the PC itself. A small compromise I suppose
