Problem with USB Hack Project.? Answered

I am basically trying to create an adapter USB to Mini USB. 
I stripped the wires, and then continued to try to connect them using alligator clips. Then i connected one end (mini USB) to my PC.
When I cut the wires on the mini usb cord i only saw 4 wires. So i proceed to connect them to the other corresponding wires on the other usb cord.
My PC does recognize that there is something plugged in, it just comes up as unknown device, and i am not able to get into my external HD.

Can anyone shed some light into this?
(up to date drivers have been previously installed.)

It's great that you tried to make your own cable, but it would probably be best if you just bought one instead. For starters, you are creating a large gap without proper shielding from interference. Secondly, many devices that utilize high-speed digital data transfer require that the individual wires be twisted together in a certain pattern. Lastly, jumper leads are also acting as antennas and causing the data wires to interfere with each other or surrounding electromagnetic interference. When making an Ethernet cable for example, if you untwist the wires more than a couple centimeters when adding an end on the cable, the cable will not work.

Anyways, you can get a Mini USB- USB cable for $1 at the local dollar store :)

If not, just about any wal-mart or radioshack would have them (for around $6)
