    USB related question

    I have to (soon to be useless) female USB ends, and wanted to make a two USB connection hub thingie (like newer monitors have on the sides) and was curious about it reckless to have two USB female ends that run/connect to one male end that's in the PC? (i took a little bit of electronics in HS, so i know what could happen if this gets done wrong)

    in-case that makes little to no sense...

    This well result (if done properly) in something that allows you to have exactly ONE device plugged in at a time. If you plug in two, bad things happen. You need some type of circuitry involved to handle both being plugged in at the same time.

    USB spec does not support that type of connection.
    Would not recommend it.

    Fusinfun, what kinda circuitry would i need? a chip? if i do need a chip, i just may use the spare pieces as a USB extension cord...unless someone can show me the circuitry needed and what not

    i have a wasted PS2 slim, so if anyone knows (for sure) that i would be able to get the necessary parts off of that, that would help (it's where im going to get my USB females ends from)

    You need whatever circuitry is inside of a USB hub. You're better off buying a standard hub and taking it apart than trying to wire up your own circuitry.

    Just go for the extension cable idea.
