How to wire a usb to ps2 extension cable strikes back 2?

What is that about, I am not allowed to edit my own post?


Goal: Making a usb female to ps2 male extension cable.

Info.: Using a ps2 cable removed from a keyboard. At one end of the cable is a male ps2 connector. The ps2 cable has 5 wires. One non insulated wire which is ground. Please go to http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/9b/PS2_connector_close_up-numbers_PNr%C2%B00054b.jpg
for pin locations.
Green wire is located at 2. Yellow wire is located at 3. Red wire is located at 4. White wire is located at 6.

Go to http://ntcdistributing.com/bigprod/ura-1001-clear.jpg for usb pin locations.
Name the 4 straight up pins from left to right 1, 2, 3 and 4. The used female usb connector looks like the pictured one.

Q1: How do I wire green, yellow, red and white to pin 1, 2, 3 and4?

Q2: What about the ground wire?

Thank you.

  1. What is your REAL goal?

    PS2 and USB are not compatible protocols. Yes, some USB keyboards and mice come with a short USB to PS2 adapter, but those devices are made to sense when the adapter is being used and they automatically switch to using the PS2 protocol.
