Well, I'd have to disassemble the thing for pics. Will do for you, but only as last resort.
I think (no guarantee, though! -- no risk, no hacking fun!) from the fumbling around (officially known as 'testing') that the 1525 has the same order of pins as my 1526, and that the only difference is in pin/connector size.
You could try and wire an external USB plug to the wires that connect to the outer four pins:
From camera board end to center the pins are: |
GND -- Data -- Data -- Vcc -- four more (for the built-in microphone?)
The first four are for the cam, they are standard USB (I tried them soldered to a standard USB A plug -- worked);...
they go to the USB plug (standard USB color code, same order): *
Black -- Green -- White -- Red
If that works, connect them to the M9 cable:
... they go to the Mini 9 cable colors (In the same order) |
Orange -- Red -- Brown -- Black
* To be on the safe side, test whether it is really Red really that has +5V. There are non-standard cables around and the voltage on the wrong pin may fry a chip.
