Help rewiring/resoldering RetroUSB NES coord? Please?

Post by CKY-2K/Clay Man » Fri Nov 08, 2013 12:16 pm

So I found my RetroUSB cord completely torn out of the socket from the part that connects the USB to the NES controller.

I don't have money to buy a new one right now, so can someone help me fix mine? I broke open the back and there's 4 USB solder points. I figured out what they were

V-
V+
D-
D+

So the first two is ground, then voltage supply, and the second two are -data and +data right?

I looked at a color schematic for USB and tried to fix it but it just keeps saying the USB device is not recognized. The colors I set up from top to bottom were black, red, green, white.
My NES Advantage shown it was getting power through the LEDs though.

Can anyone help? Thanks.

Here to at least get an idea of how the NES works. I mean I know alot of the basic things, but this place'll help me grasp more how NES functions.
Major respect to NES developers.

TL;DR- you have green and white backwards.
