    This may be a bit of a long shot but here we go...

    Basically I'm looking for a short (as in about 15cm/6inches) MALE MicroUSB to MALE MiniUSB cable to connect my Galaxy S3 phone to my PS3 pad. Currently I'm using a short OTG cable and another short FEMALE USB to MALE minUSB cable to get the 2 devices connected. Although this works, it's a bit....clunky and upon browsing the internet today I found this:



    The cable there is EXACTLY what I need. Doing a search on eBAY and Amazon has so far been unsuccessful and I was hoping maybe someone on here has a bit of experience looking for rare cables and suchlike and would know where to look.

    And I'd just like to add that I already own the S3 specific version of the GameKlip and I've already contacted the guy who makes them asking about the cable and am awaiting a reply.

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Close, but that's a female miniUSB connector.

    Thanks for looking anyway.

    Hmmmm....The site has a second photo and it looks like it's a fairly long one (about a metre at a guess).

    So far I've found a 25cm one on the US eBAY site and it's cost 1.31. It's shipping from Hong Kong so have no idea when/if it'll arrive or whether it'll actually work.

    Thanks everyone for looking tho and if you have any more ideas, post 'em here :-)

    AFAIK, to make the phone appear as a USB master to the pad, it'll need to be wired as an OTG cable at the mini-USB end. Just a random cable with the right connectors may not work.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Just lop off the middle section, wire it back up yourself, wrap some electrical tape around it, done.
