I am working on a project that requires a 5 pin connector but it seems like the USB cable is causing some issues. I am using a microUSB B male-male cord to transfer some power and data. Through further research, I am seeing that Micro USB B may be more complex than a simple 5 wire cord. I found the following quote online:
"Contrary to popular belief, D+ and D- operate together; they are not separate simplex connections."
What does this mean? Is there a way I can use this cable as 5 separate lines?
