For about fifty cents US I picked up a used mac pro M7803 keyboard (carbon color). I plan to use it with my iMac 27" - as I'd like to have the option of a non-wireless keyboard that has the number pad. However the main USB cable that connects the keyboard to the computer for both data and power was for whatever reason snipped off pretty much right at the base of the keyboard. (see pic below) I figure it can't be rocket science to fix it... it seems it'd be as simple as opening up the keyboard and taking a look at where/how that USB cable attaches and replacing it. My guess it's probably soldered right onto some bit of circuit board just inside the case. If I was lucky it's set up with some sort of connector and I could just unplug it and insert the new cable... but something tells me it's not that sort of set up. I've found a useful page that details resurrecting a Mac Pro keyboard from a soda-spill-death... by opening the case and cleaning it all out etc. But there isn't any mention per se of the USB cable or it's attachment. My questions for anyone kind enough to drop the info on me are: 1) anyone ever replaced the main USB cable on this type of keyboard? 2) will any USB 2.0 cable work for this or is there something more I need to know about the main USB cable that connects this keyboard to the computer? 3) Also attached are what I've found so far as the spec for USB 2.0 cables is this standard also for Macs? Thanks in advance for all replies.
