uSDC20D computer on sense details
I have the uSDC20D for my laptop. Is it possible to use a modified USB cable in order to provide the computer on sense signal? Is there a better, more recommended approach for getting this to work with a laptop?
From the instructions:
The Computer On Sense cable consists of a signal Diode that connects from the controller to a 4-pin Molex computer Hard Drive or CD-Rom Power connector connecting to +12 volts. This is how the controller detects the computer is on so that is doesn’t inadvertently turn on/off the computer when it is already on or off. It also allows “Power Down Mode” to be very short. The diode’s polarity points away from the uSDC.
Can I get more details about the specifics of this diode and how it's supposed to be hooked up? I've learned a lot in my trials/tribulations in my install, but this one has me vexed.
