Where to buy WASP Fusion flex ribbon cables ?

Post by s8n187 » Tue Feb 26, 2019 8:58 pm

hi guys and emu , i just pulled out my WASP that didn't work from about a year ago. I thought i would have another shot at getting it working. I have it connected to my GC with a MEGAdrive V3 , i was shocked it worked first go it seems i flashed it right and it was a cable issue. So now i have 2 working WASPS and 2 working MEGAdrive V3's , what i need now is new flex ribbon cables as the current ones are a bit beat up and one is totally gone. So yeah i need the shorter and longer ones , does anyone know a source where i can buy new ones ?

i have taken Diminuendo's advice and pulled the Drive Cable and used that , i also happened to be on Assembler forums and someone mentioned the specs for the Memory Card Adapter flex cable. So i went to element14 and found one , i have installed it and i have 2 GC's running WASPs. I will leave the specs for the Memory Card Adapter flex cable below for anyone having troubles.

No. of Cores: 12Core
Pitch Spacing: 0.5mm
Contact Orientation: Same Sided Contacts
Cable Length - Metric: 200mm

Wii Drive / Fusion ODEs are the same spec 0.5mm pitch, same side contact, but with 32 connectors.
