|I'm interested in solving this for experimentation/learning only. I obtained one of these junkers:|
I have no cable, and the camera uses the same USB connector as the computer does, in other words, "type A" at both ends. I don't know if the cable is hard wired, has some sort of data/level converter circuit, or what. How do you "reverse engineer" these?
I've done some playing--two way radio programming, fer instance, with RS232/serial/parallel/etc, but USB is a black art to me.
One added twist, is since I know not what kind of power actually goes to the camera from USB, and the camera IS POWERED from USB during data transfer, it makes probing the thing difficult.
