    USB XMDirect adapter DIN cable pinout

    bought a used XM Direct USB adapter, and I think I received the wrong 8 pin cable, cause when I plug in an XM direct, I blow a fuse.

    I checked the pinout of the cable I have and its not pin-pin.

    Anyone know if it should be, or know the pinout?

    Thanks in advance.

    Is this what you are looking for? It is the 8 pin cable but for serial connection.

    yep, checked that.

    When just the MP3Car USB adapter is plugged in, no problem. However when I connect the XMDirect, fuses give out.

    The 8 pin Din cable I received does not connect 1-1, 2-2, etc. So I'm trying to find out if the cable should
