Making this cable looks very simple and straight forward to me. I've made thousands of similar cables in the past as a part of my work duties, and I also work on electronics and computers as a hobby.

Unfortunately I don't have a crimper for this type of connector, so I'll have to buy one.

I've just priced out the pins, connectors, tools, and cable for this. I'm willing to make some extra cables to recover the cost of the crimper, supplies, and my time.

Does $10 per cable + shipping costs sound reasonable?

Assuming there is some interest, and holiday shipping traffic doesn't ruin things, I'll order the parts and have them in sometime next week. I have some time off between Christmas and New Year, so I should be able to have parts out via USPS sometime during the first part of January.

I'm looking at getting enough parts to build five 3 foot cables right now, I'll hold off to see if anyone else wants some before I order.

I realized that some people might want to send me a message offline or PM and may not have an account here, and I don't really want to keep checking in here either. farkinogre at gmail dot com will reach me if you're interested in a cable.

Hey Don have one of my flashed cameras acting up with new input. Not rebooting or full pink screen but half the screen looks scrambled with pointing at snow with above mid level contrast and brightness setting. Again this camera has the new code. Just started past couple of days.

Any ideas?

What camera model?

Did you check what the DSP chip was? Prior to doing the update?

Got the 8910W from Amazon and it seems to be rebooting when pointed outside sometimes. Manufacturer date June 2013. Has anyone tried contacting Amazon about this? I know they'd send me a new one, but it seems likely that it would have the same problem. Is there a specific manufacturer date after which works properly? Has Amazon fixed anyone's camera like Foscam says the "retailer should"? Thanks.

Meaning?

If you mean that the DSP chip is in fact the V399 DSP Chip? I would attempt to re-flash the DSP. I would also, as the instructions state. Make sure that the camera is not plugged into the cameras adapter and outlet, when doing so.

I flashed my camera today and it works perfectly now. Thanks for the information needed to do it.

Just out of curiosity, what is the "correct" way to attach wires to the tin pins securely? I was able to get it done by squeezing hard with needlenose pliers, shoving them into the holes on the molex connector, inserting the connector into the camera's board, then inspecting very carefully to make sure there were no shorts before plugging it into the computer. It was pretty hinky, but it worked, but I had to hold it very carefully to make sure it didn't short while it was flashing.

The "correct" way would be to purchase the connector with the wires already attached, then splice the USB cable to it.
