USB A Female to Mini 5 pin (B5) Male Adapter

For connecting onto a type A male end of a USB cable to convert it to a male mini B 5 pin connector.
The adapter has a female Type A on one side and a male Mini B 5 pin on the other.
Please Note:  USB devices generally consist of host devices such as computers which usually have type A ports and down stream peripheral devices such as printers, cameras, etc, which use a Type B or some variation of mini or micro type B.  When connecting two devices together it is important to have a host on one end and a downstream device on the other.  The host device initiates communication, so if two downstream devices are connected directly to each other without a host, they will just sit there waiting for the other to initiate some action which will never happen.  If two host devices are connected together, they will generally conflict since appropriate drivers to control another host are not available.  The only downstream device that will connect directly to another downstream device is a hub or a device acting as a hub through which the secondary device can access the host through the first.

Pros: Sturdy.

Cons: I couldn't get it to work.

I couldn't get my USB flashdrives to fit into the usb end. Don't know if it is the adapter or if it just doesn't work with normal usb flashdrives.

Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 4814. This adapter should fit the USB flashdrives. Unfortunately, it appears as though you may have received a defective adapter. If you would like, I can help setup an RMA for a replacement. Just let me know if you would like to proceed with the RMA. Apologies again for any inconvenience and hope this helps!

One of the little side parts was slightly bent to the inside. My husband bent it back (after I had written the review) and now my flashdrives work. I appreciate your offer, but all is well now!

These work great (in conjunction with 7532 / 49ft 15M USB 2.0 A Male to A Female Active Extension / Repeater Cable (Kinect & PS3 Move Compatible Extension) ) for DSLR tethering. We use Canon 5D mark2s and mark3s, with Capture One versions 6 and 7.

Works Plastic coating is thick

Pros: Works 4-pin

Cons: Plastic is thick around the mini USB end.

If you want something that converts USB A female to USB mini B this item does the trick.

As mentioned in the cons section the plastic coating was so thick that it prohibited placing in the recessed slot I wanted to (automotive application, likely unusual). Using a razor blade to cut away the black plastic fixed that. I'm happy with this product as a result.
