I couldn't find a detailed specs on the connector, but it must be an
amazing little piece of circuitry. Do you know if the connector has any
special drivers needed? If it doesn't, that may mean the connector
handles all the interfacing and buffering needed. Which is pretty
cool. :) If that is the case, it should work fine with the USB port.
This would be interesting - one of my friends may know. He loves ripping
things apart and modifying stuff. :)
