View Full Version : Can you identify this cable?

25-04-2008, 09:46 AM
I have a cable, 1.8 m long, male connector at each end. The connectors look like VGA, but only have 11 pins. There is a label on it that says "I/F cable 3138 118 73410". I did a search on that number and all it turned up was an item on German Ebay that looked the same.

Any ideas?

it could be serial port cable that was present on sound cards, for joystick.

It is too substantial and has too many or too few pins for a serial cable. Aren't serial cables either 9 or 25 pins?

A picture would help a lot.
VGA cables often do not have the full complement of 15 pins, as not all are used.

If this reference does not have it, then the cable does not exist :)

It is actually a vga cable. It certainly worked between my laptop and an external monitor. I suspected it was, but was put off by the number of pins. Clearly Terry, you are the man.
