    F_Audio Line In to Motherboard - Cable & Question

    Hi all,

    First the quick easy question, I want to hook up a 3.5mm audio line in jack to our VIA EPIA-EX series motherboard. In the manual there is this pic (attachment 1)

    I believe we want pins 2,6, and 10
    2=AUD_GND
    6=AUD RET_R
    10=AUD_RET_L

    Now the tricky part is finding the internal cable that is 3.5mm Female to individual jumper connector. I believe I have found something close here
    http://www.frontx.com/cpx092_2.html
    this cable will not work because the 3 pins on my mobo are not adjacent, if the connector was 3 separate connectors that would work.

    Does anyone know a good source of these internal audio cables? It looks as if i may have to scrounge the local electronics parts store or try to salvage parts from an old comp.

    Thanks
    Jaime

    the metal pins/terminals are removable, just release a tab on the side and they pull right out of the connector. if you have a 2x3, 2x4, or 2x5 connector from something else then you can use that instead (a standard 2x4 or 2x5 USB header connector will work). if you don't have one then you can buy a connector by itself (the website you linked sells them )

    alternatively, you can also use the terminals independently (without the plastic connector). just put some heatshrink over the terminals you want to use so they don't touch the adjacent pins.
