How to identify USB connectors.

I wanted to order a cable to connect my old KORG Midi controller to my new MacBook Pro. One end needed to be USB-C, and the other end needed to be an older USB connector that I wasn’t sure of the name of.

Here’s a great chart from RS-components in Australia that names all the USB connectors to help you easily find the one you need.

My MacBook Pro has a USB-C female socket.

My KORK nacocontroller has a Mini-B female socket.

So I did an ebay search for USB-C to Mini-B male cable and found it straight away!

You could buy it from RS components if you live in Australia. Thankyou RS Components for the chart!
