    I've got a thrashed usb connector on a white extended wired Mac usb 2.0 keyboard...

    anyone know if these are easily fixed or not? I guess I'd need a new usb cord into the keyboard. THANKS

    If you're handy with a soldering iron, USB cables are very easy to repair (they're 4 wires, IIRC). You just need a spare USB end from an old cable or device.

    I've turned a bunch of 4 foot cables into 6 inch "pigtails." You can even do it without solder using electrical tape, but it's much more professional looking with solder and shrink tubing.

    PM me if you want help.
