Name this cable/connector! [56k Warning]

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok, so my Dad gave me two big boxes of random cables which I have no idea what most of them are called or used for. I'm going to post them up for sale on eBay to make a bit of cash but I need to find out what they are called first! So, I come to OCN with a little game and a chance learn the name and use of some more obscure cables. Name this cable!

To keep this thread clean, please do not quote the whole post but rather post "Mystery Cable #2 is blablabla" or if you must, only quote the picture of the cable you are referring to.

PS: If you want to buy any of these cables you can PM me. I also have many DVI, VGA, PSU, USB, Serial and Parallel cables.

Have fun!

Unidentified:

Mystery Cable #3: - DB9 to ?



Mystery Cable #9: DB25 with missing pins to ?


Mystery Cable #10:



Identified:

Mystery Cable #1: - LPT to Parallel


Mystery Cable #2: - LPT to LPT


Mystery Cable #4: - DB19 to Composite/S-Video


Mystery Cable #7: - PS/2 to DB19 (both input and output)



Mystery Cable #8: - SCSI (Centronics 50-Pin)



Mystery Cable #11: - SCSI (high density DB 68-pin to high density DB 68-pin)

Just by the look of them and keep in mind they are all really really old cables.

Mistery cable 1 and 5 are old printer cables
Mistery cable 11 is a zip drivr cable
Mistery cable 4 is a serial to audio cable same with mistery cable 7
Mistery cable 3 looks like its a serial to coax cable

Hmm, now that I recall I think the first one is LPT to Parallel used for old printers and the second one is LPT to LPT.

I thought the last one was SCSI also but I thought it had a plastic piece in between the pins.

Thanks! +Rep

Hmm, maybe it doesn't like the image host I used. I rarely post pictures so I'm not sure what is good or not, sorry.

That my friend is rogue software... You need to scan your PC immediately and remove any traces before you go logging into stuff.

Malwarebytes scan does not pick it up. That warning only popped up (first and only time) when I went to look at cable #3. This is a bit ironic as in security class I present the viewpoint that clicking on links in forums presented a good level of risk but no one agreeded.

#10 appears to be a micro ribbon 36 style Parallel port, which might go to a printer you might use with an IBM XT's MDA.

Alternatively, either 9 or 10 would plug into a computer and then connect via the other to a printer, like maybe a dot matrix printer?
