Default Simple custom configurations, Hard to find info

Hi! I'm just trying to put together a simple shielded coax cable with 1/4" mono (ts,tsr?) on one end and USB on the other. Can't seem to find even a simple schematic showing me how to splice my own. I know usb adapter cables are relatively inexpensive, but I'm sure I have all the right parts and would care to assemble my own. Thanks!

What are you trying to do?
USB has 4 wires- GND,+5v, and two data wires.
Google 'USB pinout' and you should find what you need....

You can't just wire a jack plug to a USB plug, the commercial 'leads' actually have fairly complex integrated circuits built-in to them.

That's why you can't find a schematic, because it can't be done, and you certainly don't have the right parts.

I think what you want to do is feed it into the sound card line in or microphone input. jer
