I'm trying to build my own dock for my iPod Classic, but I'd like some help with the electronics.
I'm going to get RCA output, that won't be a problem.
The thing that's going to be difficult is the female 30 pin connector I want to add so while my iPod is plugged in, I could plug in a cable from my Pc and sync music or maybe charge it.
The idea is that my iPod will be connected with the male connector on top of the dock. And on the side there will be a female connector, but just for syncing and charging. Now I did find a site with a pin out for the male connector, but not for the female connector.
So my main question is:
- Is the thing I want possible, because I know in some tutorials they say you need a 68k resistor, but that's just for iPhone and iTouch.
If you need more info, just aks and I will supply.
Scratch the photo, I looked at the pinout at this site: http://pinouts.ru/PortableDevices/ipod_pinout.shtml
And as of now the pins I think I need are; 2, 3, 4, 16, 18, 23, 25 & 27. Could anyone conform that those are the pins I need for audio output, data transferring and charging the battery?
