    Default I made a cable for BB Logging

    I made the cable to NOT need the converter.. The cost was around $8.00 to make. It already has pins 2,3 reversed and has the rj11 connector for flashscan v2.

    Is anyone interested on it? it uses generic materials but I really think its worth it instead of the gender changer and all the cables. Its short about 6" to 1'.

    What you guys think?

    Is the FlashScan end an RJ11 or RJ25? It is a 6-wire right?

    I am pretty sure you dont want to use just any "RJ11" cable, because while some do have 6 pins, only the center 4 are fitted... whereas an RJ25 (can be the same physical plug as an RJ11, 12 or 14) should have all 6 fitted. It looks like we do need the 6th pin too according to Ira.

    Check this out: http://www.zytrax.com/tech/layer_1/c...bles_jacks.htm

    You said that pins 2 and 3 are swapped? I think you want to change that. Ira (EFILive dealer in CA) pin'ed out a stock EFILive RS232 cable for me in another post and he said the pins that are swapped look like this:

    DB9 - RJ25
    2 ----> 6
    3 ----> 5
    5 ----> 2


    Edit:: Correction: That should say:
    D9 RJ12
    5--5
    3--2
    2--1

    What about making a phono-jack to RJ12 cable that will connet directly from FlashScan to the LC1 serial jack. Shouldn't be too hard.

    I have several network cables laying around my house. I also some phono jack cables from various things. Can you show us what pins on the RJ12 cable need to go to which part of the phono? I'd rather go this route than mess with gender adapters. A little soldering never hurt anyone.

    RJ12 is numbered 6 on the left and 1 on the right when holding the plug with the gold pins facing you and facing upwards.

    Correction: That should say: RJ12 is numbered 1 on the left and 6 on the right...

    LC-1 phono jack, has ground at the base, pin 3 at the tip and pin 2 in the middle.

    Remember to cross 2 and 3 so that you will end up with:
    RJ12 pin 2 goes to phono base
    RJ12 pin 5 goes to phono middle
    RJ12 pin 6 goes to phono tip

    Correction: That should say:
    RJ12 pin 5 goes to phono base
    RJ12 pin 2 goes to phono middle
    RJ12 pin 1 goes to phono tip

    Regards
