Hey guys,

I need to get a mini-USB hub for a PC so I can connect a miniUSB male connection to my PC (like you have on smart-phones etc) anyone know if such a device exists - or where in NZ to get from?

cheers

So what you want is a mini-USB to USB adapter? Lots on TradeMe. Also depending where you are you should be able to get it from Jaycar or (at a price) RS Components. Dick Smith should have it, but not sure. Keep in mind there are 2 types of mini-USB plugs but there is a generic socket available that takes both plugs. You should find all the info on Wikipedia.




You can never have enough Volvos!

What I am after is very tricky to find - I have had no luck at DSE so far.

The adapter is refered to as  "A" Male to Mini "B" 5 Pin Female
