Wii alternate USB pinouts

Post by Animedude101 » Wed Jul 16, 2008 1:39 pm

Hi everyone i was replacing my Wii Usb ports (because they were broken) and in the process i sorta messed up the pinouts for the data + and - so if anyone has any ideas on if there are alternate USB pinouts then it would really help.............

sorry i wasn't being specific what ment is tht the data traces are gone and does anyone know where on the motherboard they lead to

Reversing Data + and - shouldn't damage the console, just wire them back to the proper orientation. If it isn't working after re-wiring to the proper orientation, check around for micro-fuses that could have blown.

Data - is always the side next to +5v. No matter what the application, USB pinouts, given a particular connector, are the same. (It wouldn't be too universal if it wasn't, right? ;))

sounds like he lifted the traces or something. Can you just follow the traces? You could stick your mutli meter on it in continuity mode and check each connection...

FAIL

Seriously, then you can use your eyes and carefully follow them. Or invest $10 and get a cheapo Chinese digital multimeter.
