I need either a cord or just an adapter that is **male on both ends** and goes from 9 pins on one end to 15 pins on the other end. Any idea where I can find something like that? I have the Timex Data-Link watch which requires a CRT type device for transferring data from the computer to the watch. Timex also sells an adapter for laptops because the laptop screens aren't able to transfer the data because they're LCD. The problem is: The adapter I bought from Timex is **female** and has the 9 hole configuration in the plug end. The computer plug is also *female* and has the 15 hole configuration.
I've emailed Timex, but I couldn't find such an item on their site. I've also checked here locally, but there aren't that many electronics shops around this area. If you can help with an online vendor's URL or a manufacturer's name (and/or URL)who makes these that would be great. Also, do you think it would be ok to use the adapter between the two devices? I'm not really sure, and I don't want to ruin either piece of hardware.
Can anybody help? Hope so!
