Call me mad, but I simply want my USB cables to be arranged in the way I wanted. There is this connector which is quite unknown to a lot of ppl, and I cant seem to even find a proper name for it online. Wikipedia says it is called "AGOX 8 pin", while some China distros say its "Ultra Mini 8-pin USB". I dunno which is right, especially when I see "Citation Needed" next to the "AGOX" name reference to the connector in Wiki.
But! Both my camcorder and Sanyo S6 camera use this connector. Sure Im supplied with a long USB cable with video and audio out (thats why got 8 pins so many), but I want it to be an adaptor instead, just like what I did to my micro USB connector.
Since not much info can be found online, i spent quite some time and effort poking fine wires into the AGOX connector with a DMM to find out which pin is which. If you are interested, this is the pin-out info:
Pin Connections for AGOX to USB, Mono Audio Out and Video Out Pin 1 - USB Pin 1 Pin 2 - USB Pin 2 Pin 3 - USB Pin 4, Audio Ground,Video Ground Pin 4 - USB Pin 3 Pin 5 - USB Pin 4, Audio Ground,Video Ground Pin 6 - Audio Sig Pin 7 - Video Sig Pin 8 - USB Pin 4, Audio Ground,Video Ground
Pin 1 - a Pin 2 - e Pin 3 - c Pin 4 - g Pin 5 - b Pin 6 - f Pin 7 - d Pin 8 - h N/C - i
Note that Pin 1 refers to the rightmost pin when viewed from in front (imagine u are the receptacle and this connector is coming into you) or the leftmost pin when viewing the back (where you will be seeing the connecting poles)
