How to convert an iPod 30 pinn connector for use on a Sansa Fuze

I got a Sansa Fuze yesterday (Second-Hand) & I noticed that the interface is the same as My iPod Nano's 30-Pin USB Data Transfer/Charging Cable connector.  "Yes-Yes I know They Are Not The Same!"  However Only the Pinouts are different, Not the connector itself.
Or am I wrong about that ?

I was thinking if this is true, then it shouldn't be too hard to rewire the 30 pinn connector, as it's probably just two-to-four wires that are assigned differently, Correct ??
Or am I wrong about that as well ?

Before the flaming begins.
Please know that even though I'm new here, I am well aware of the fact that I should just go buy a new USB cable for My Sansa Fuse at Walmart, however I was hoping to learn how to rewire an Ipod Nano USB Data Cable over to a Sansa Fuze USB Data cable.
Thanks for any insight & direction with this issue


Yes, from what I understand the connector is the same. So in theory it should be possible to rewire the USB cable. Why don't you give it a try?
Better to understand a little than to misunderstand a lot.
