So after learning that some 9 pin cables have wacky pinouts with pins sometimes mixing with other pins and crossing over and sometimes not even going through to the other side and poo poo and also buying these cables for my diy project and learning that they're effectively useless to me...

Is there any 9 pin cable out there that just has pin 1 goes to pin 1 on the other side for all 9 pins? Hell I'd even take a pinout where all 9 pins just go to the other side without any funny business beyond a mixed up pinout because I can work with that. If anyone knows what I'm looking for please help

I for one cannot believe there aren't many options for outdated tech cables

That might work. I'm needing a F/M cable

I didn't think to look for extension cables so thanks for that

I appreciate the responses. One side I soldered and the other side I used screw terminals and this cord is bridging that gap. I just received an extension cable that I'm going to try today which hopefully solves my problem.

e: extension cable worked like i needed it to, thanks
