USB A male pins from 1 to 4
and USB A female pins from 1 to 4, but must be from 4 to 1
CORRECTin a pc with multiple USB ports are they just Daisy Chained together without independant siginal buffers isolating devices connected to the computer?APPROVED

2008-12-16 23:08:13rev. 2INCORRECTi would recommend going to www.usb.org and pull the actual document, the whole issue revolves around how you orient the connectors, looking at the USB 2.0 documentation it clears up some of the issues. (be careful, they are viewing the pins from BEHIND the connector, so you would have to invert them to get a pinout image from the front of the connector. APPROVED
