First of all, I'd just like to say, awesome mod!

Second of all, I wonder if you could just use a generic sansa view line out cable (see link below,) cut it open & solder in a 3.5 mini jack?

AV Composite Cable for SanDisk Sansa View Series from Overstock.com

£5 for a cable would be darn cheap and a lot simpler for noob DIYers...

Finally, I'd love to see some more comments on how it actually sounds!

I doubt it will have the extra pins inside that you can solder with. To cut cost, generic cable usually comes only with the pins in use but not more.

your right clieos, actually I took apart a generic charger that someone gave me for my ipod and after opening it up it only had the pins for ground and power. Not only that but the other slots were covered in plastic. So basically even if I had extra pins, they were completely useless.

Anybody using e5, are you using v1 or v2.

I am using v1 with E5, cmoy, and XM3. v2 for 3MOVE and T4.

Do you remember how big those caps were pdupiano (or have a part number from somewhere)? Trying to get an idea of what will fit in the connector...

So this does work with the Sansa view? I got a 8gb View in a Woot BoC with a jacked up HP out so this may be a fun little project to revive an otherwise useless toy.

I pretty much ordered the smallest size caps I could find on mouser (electrolytic)

My guess is not. Sansa View already has a dedicated line-out on the dock that you can buy a readily-made cable (which also has a video-out as well). You don't really need to make the LOD for Sansa View.

The smallest (and currently still in production) bi-polar electrolytic caps I can find is 11mm x 5mm (length x diameter). But for better capacitance value, you might want to look into 11mm x 6.3mm as well, though I am not sure whether it can still fit inside the dock.

I've no chance of making one of these myself, it's just too small and 'fiddly' for me!

Anyone want to sell me one?

I just ordered parts enough for three (in case I screw up... lol) If I have left-overs I'll make you one if you're still looking. There was one for sale in the FS forums earlier this week too, might want to look in to that.

Got my parts and finished an LOD (without breaking anything!!). Like pdupiano, I got a large iPod connector and put the caps inside the casing; I wasn't confident I could get the resistors into the connector, so those went in the Switchcraft plug.

Sadly I clipped the cable a litttttle bit short and/or underestimated its stiffness, so it won't bend quite far enough to let my Fuze/Pico sit on top of each other... have to use a rubber band on the U-bend part to hold it close enough or theres a ton of torque on the jacks. But thats what I have spare parts for...

Anyway, great guide! I'll put up pics as soon as I can steal a camera from somewhere...

Amazing!!!
Can it be use with a e2XX V2 ?

This will answer your question:

The problem must be that pin 22 on the E200 series does not have the 1-3 volt needed to enable pin 7. When I have time, I'll see if there is a suitable pin to use on the E200 series to feed pin 7 from. If there is, it will be a simple change to the original DIY cables to have the pin 7 jump go to the correct pin instead of pin 22.

ClieOS,
I was wondering if you could tell me what pins to use to make an Ipod to Fuze cable(or if it will even work).There are several ipod hookups in the market place and very few Fuze.With a female Ipod end connected to a male Fuze end it could open the possibilities out there.Thanks for any input.
