DIY iPod LOD Cables

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I just finished last night making my first Ipod LOD cable and thought I would share how I did it..

 

I used 28 gauge Silver wire that I think is under sized so I use two strands per lead..

It is 16 strands per wire so I have a total of 32 :)

 

I use green, yellow and purple which is New Orleans Mardi Gra colors

 

I bought the iPod connectors at

http://www.chargeconverter.com/shop/connector.htm

 

3.5 stero pins and 68K OHMs Resistors are from

http://www.mouser.com/

 

Wire is from eBay

Siver Wire Telflon coated

 

 

Pins Out resource for connectors

Good post - I like the image of the orientation of the connector and pinout diagram.  You can take your ground away from audio ground and attach it to the pin 11/15/21 bridge FYI - some people like this as it makes soldering a bit easier since pin 2/3/4 are so close together.

 

Also why not add this to the Wiki so it does not get lost.  There is a post in there about how to make a LOD.

Is it true you can attach the ground to the 11/15 pin bridge? I have heard this before but in all the tutorials people have typed or pictures they have uploaded they have used pin 2 for the ground. If the ground does operate from pin 11/15 it'd be much easier to solder.

p.s and also, if im making a dock connector for my itouch or anyother ipod excluding the iphone i dont need the resistor?

p.s also what type of pin do i need? all the ones i look up look like adaptors of 1/8to1/4 can i use the smaller plug? do i have to have a big plug? and can i see a link to a good one because i just dont know what to buy.
