    Wacky idea for USB without dock

    I have no idea if this would work but perhaps someone with more technical savvy could weigh in.

    Would it be possible to attach USB devices using just the standard proprietary data/charging cable and a female to female USB adapter (like this: For only $0.73 each when QTY 50+ purchased - USB 2.0 A Female to A Female Coupler Adapter | USB 2.0 Adapters ). I don't know, it seems simple enough (and pretty inexpensive). Is there any reason that wouldn't work? Has anyone ever tried it with this or other tablets?

    A few people have tried, me including and its a no go - you need an adapter that ASUS sells to convert the port, its not a simple case of having the correct cable unfortunately

    I am highly trained in Electrical Engineering. once I get the Dock Cable, I will buy a second cable; take it apart, and figure out the wiring.

    I will post if there is a soldering fix you can do your self, though im sure buying the converter is much cheaper.

    With these converters its just extremely small, usually 1/2" - 1" cable crossed to be pinned properly on the other side for specific usb conversion, though depending on how they wired it, its all up in the air.

    I know that on the Ipod cable, we can use the USB cable through a car receiver, and I am most definately going to be trying to rewire to use android phones and tablets throught the USB receiver to listen and control... Honestly its just a matter of wiring it properly.

    Ill see what I can do and advise.
