micro to mini usb otg cable

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 

Anyone ever see a short USB OTG cable terminated in micro b to mini b to connect an android phone to a FiiO E7 at any length, but I'd prefer ~3inches?

 

I tried googling' it but I only come up with USB OTG adaptors for full size usb connector.

 

I tried this: http://www.amazon.com/Wilson-Electronics-Micro-Charging-Adapter/dp/B003NQ0QES/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1349738021&sr=8-3&keywords=micro+to+mini+usb  but the pin layout was not set up for USB OTG (it was set up for regular USB, so it would CHARGE small BT headsets from the phone, but not switch to slave/host for OTG.)

This one is 6 inches http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-Micro-b-male-Mini-b-male-data-cable-lead-adaptor-/251163641425 Similar thread here http://www.head-fi.org/t/628374/samsung-galaxy-s3-to-dac-usb-micro-b-male-to-mini-b-male We also saw something close http://www.erji.net/read.php?tid=1320392 Another alternative might not be that neat but they do provide options for 90-degree / 180-degree / 270-degree / 360-degree http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=15840769093

The part number for the new cable is 97730 and they have them on Amazon.

OK, 

Got my cable today, how do I make it work?

I tried both of my USB dac's that take this connection, and the 1st thing that popped up on my HTC EVO was the CAR Panel. I canceled out of that and opened the music player, hit play and only got sound out of the phone's speaker. 

Seems I'm missing a setting somewhere?

Loos like the software on my phone is too old to support this frown.gif

The LINDY 0.5m OTG USB Micro B (host) to Mini B (slave) can now be purchased on Amazon for $6. (Note: 0.5m is about 18 inches)

This puts it all in one cable and cuts out the need for an OTG adapter.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BU4ML1Q/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&seller=

 

Has been tested with a DAC on a Samsung Note 2 and the Samsung Galaxy SIII as well as other OTG applications and it works perfectly as an OTG cable. 

i contacted lindy international because unfortunately a si'm from belgium i can not buy from amazon.com

 

they told me the cable is not sold as a part of their stock anymore... -.-

 

if someone could give me a link from some other company that sells a cable like this.. (i'd prefer it to be shorter than 0.5m though... it's for a portable setup...)

Hope this might be of some help, just got around to listing them.

Hi!

This is a new cable from Lindy, works as OTG. The built quality could be better but works as intended and its relatively cheap.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BU4ML1Q/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

If anybody knows about a high quality option please let me know.

Any confirmation that this cable works? I just ordered the Lindy cable but I like that this one's so much smaller.

Ordered then. I'll see if either work between my Meizu MX and FiiO E17 via USB Audio Recorder Pro. eXtreme says it should, cables say they should, but I'll report when I have them in-hand at the USB Audio Android thread.

thanks, this is just the thread i was hoping to find here to connect my htc one to my fiio e17 without using a series of bulky adapters.  it'd be even better if there were a version with right angle connectors, but this should work... (not too excited about the $7 international shipping to US though)

 

edit:  i also emailed http://stores.ebay.com/shelia-ewholesale?_trksid=p2047675.l2563  with the suggestion of offering a 3" cable with a right angle micro to mini usb otg cable...
