Connecting a USB?

How would you connect the wires from a USB (female) with wires that are red, black, green, and white, to a 5V boost regulator that only had three legs - Vin, Ground, Vout?  It's not for a computer so I don't think we need the green and white wires, but I could be wrong.  Which wire goes where?  Thanks!

Facebook Connection

Hi guys, I think I might need a little help linking my instructables to my facebook.  I have tried using the button several times, 10 I think, and I have made sure I carefully put in the username and the password correctly, but whenever I click sign in it always gives me a blank screen?  Anyone else having the same problem, and does anyone know of a solution or a different way to connect the instructables and facebook accounts?  Or is my facebook connected and I just cant tell because of the blank screen?  When I log onto facebook seperatly it doesn't show in any way that I am connected to instructables.  All of your answers would be helpful.  Thanks!

Gas connections

Hey Guys.  I have a laser tag project that I am making. Now I want to put high pressure air recoil on it. With the HPA being in the magazine and the recoil being a blow back valve in the gun. The issue I have ATM is the connection between the gun and the magazine. I basically want it like a butane connection. I can't find anywhere that shows designs or standards for this though. Or anyone who sells these parts. Also I don't want to use a gas magazine as I have custom magazines and guns. Cheers.

Connect a Sketch Answered

This is a People counter, well hope to be if working.ha. Lazer across a doorway hitting a LDR. The 4 digit 7 seg display counting up 1 each time a person breaks the beam.  As of now i  have a counting sketch from the Sparkfun example. It is counting up 0 to 999 and at the same time i have an LDR reading to the serial monitor and blinking the LED on pin 13. But they are not "interacting". I am trying to get the beam breakes from the LDR to advance the count by 1 every time it is broken. In the loop function is the mills that was advancing the counting. I have changed it to   displayNumber(counter).  Among other things.But i haven't been successful in having the LDR advance the count. The sketch is still missing some "stuff". What could i change to have the counter advance by 1 every time the lazer beam is broken?    Thanks W /* 6-13-2011 Spark Fun Electronics 2011 Nathan Seidle This code is public domain but you buy me a beer if you use this and we meet someday (Beerware license). 4 digit 7 segment display: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9483 Datasheet: http://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Components/LED/7-Segment/YSD-439AR6B-35.pdf This is an example of how to drive a 7 segment LED display from an ATmega without the use of current limiting resistors. This technique is very common but requires some knowledge of electronics - you do run the risk of dumping too much current through the segments and burning out parts of the display. If you use the stock code you should be ok, but be careful editing the brightness values. This code should work with all colors (red, blue, yellow, green) but the brightness will vary from one color to the next because the forward voltage drop of each color is different. This code was written and calibrated for the red color.

how do i connect thermo switch with ele. radiator?

First things first notice: Iam in Europe so it's probably a bit different than in USA. I have electric radiator in my room. i bought thermo switch but i don't know how to connect it between the socket and the radiator. I must mention that the radiator had already same thermo switch before but it broke down after 5 years and I didn't write notes how it was connected. I already blown 4 fuses during the attempt. The wire has blue (P?), brown (N?) and yellow/ green (earth) wires. In the switch there's sheme sticker -> www.shrani.si/f/C/Nr/42sKtVVC/thermo.png. notice i have a plug and wire from the radiator both with mentioned wires. I checked blue wire and it's live (P??). Green-yellow wire is earth.. iam sure. so how do i connect the plug and the radiator??

Connecting a soundbar to a tv?

Me and my family recently purchased an Auvio soundbar from radioshack. It came with an RCA cable to hook up to our TV. However, my TV uses an "S/PDIF" jack for audio. I don't know where to get one of these, but it's been really inconvenient having to switch the RCAs to whatever component I'm using at the time instead of just hooking it up to the TV. What should I do?

xbox connection difficulties

I want my xbox360 to work on my sony pmf 42x1 monitor using the hdmi cable.  I purchased a adapter (hdmi to DVI) from the shack.  But when i hook it up i get and error from the sony saying  "not in range".   Can i adjust something on the monitor to allow it to receive the xbox signal?  The only video input i recognize is the s-video.  I included a pic from back of sony pmf 42x1 monitor. thx,  d
