Hi there

Like to ask again,

Is there someone out here who knows how to wire a mini 8 pin Din (mac) to a 4 pin USb.

Is there a scheme for it ???

Tnx John


USB can't just be pin-adapted to other signal types. The 8-pin DIN on an old Mac is an RS422 serial connector, so you need a protocol converter chip that will give your USB-equipped computer such a port.
