do you supply USB FEMALE to Car Cassette Player Adaptor, so that I can connect/play songs from my USB?

Does this have the circuitry to allow a standard USB keyboard to work with a PS2 output from a computer. Sometimes, the keyboard has to have the logic built in - in other word, some adaptors are 'dumb' and only work with a keyboard supporting USB + PS/2

Asked by: Ferret2010
This is just a straight connector with no inbuilt circuitry.

I have a six pin round purple plug from akeyboard with a power rating of 5volts=200mA. can this usb female adapter work?

Asked by: skypilot 6
This adaptor will change the shape of a PS/2 keyboard to USB, wether it will work or not will depend on the computer and operating system you connect it to.

Thank you for clarifying the description. Now, would you be able to tell me which mice in stock would work with it? I've used a similar adapter and not all usb mice would work.

Asked by: Adrian Jones

The description reads "This adapter will connect a USB device to a PS/2 input on a computer" & "This adapter will connect a PS/2 device to a USB input on a computer" Only one of these statements can be true. Is it the first, as the picture suggests?

Asked by: Adrian Jones
Yes the first statement is correct it will connect a USB device to a PS/2 input. I apologise for the confusion caused i will look at getting it amended on our website.
