I checked the pin connection between the USB plug and the Centronics 14-in connector and it appears that the +5V USB pin is not connected to any of the Centronics pins. The ground, D+, and D- pins are connected to the 11, 8, and 6 pins, respectively.
Is my connector faulty or is it normal to disconnect the +5V pin? There is a gray wire from one of the bundles coming from the Mini-din that is obviously disconnected, but I assumed this is simply an extra wire from a stock part.
Bogusness prevails. Any suggestions?
