Hi all! Minor issue, the cable I received with my sound saber via the checkout selection process does not fit the soundboard interface slot. It seems to be a different type of connection cable required, can anyone feed me some aid? The cable US sent me seems to be a micro USB and not a mini USB.

Cables can be confusing. I'm glad you got it sorted out though. Smiley

Even if the cable for the charger had fit the usb connector on the card, it wouldn't allow you to access it. That cable only allows power for the charger, not data, so you would have needed another cable. Most stores carry affordable cables of various types, plus some devices you may have already will work.

Example: I had an old MYBook that used a mini usb cable and it works perfectly fine with my Obsidian V3 & V4 sound cards.

On a similar note to this, does anyone know if the diamond controllers use a different size? Because the one I ordered ([=https://ultrasabers.com/product/mini-usb-cord/]This one, which says it's compatible with obsidion sound board[/url) doesn't fit... :/

Answer: Whether it's supposed to be different or not, the size USB required for diamond controller is NOT the one listed om the site as working with the obsidian sound board... Not gonna lie, kind of pissed I spent money on it when it's the wrong size... I have literally nothing to use this cable for. I ended up going through the cable adapters that came with my Jedi Challenges headset to find the right size...

It uses a micro-USB like this one which much newer than the mini-USB: (Only the Diamond controller has this footprint)



Here's the mini-USB which is what you have: (The Emerald driver and Obsidian Premiums have this footprint)
