I want to feed USB data through a glovebox, using binding posts seen in the first picture. My thinking was that, in theory, the USB cord is just made of four wires (one for power, 1 ground, two for data). I tried cutting the cable, and soldering the four wires to banana plugs as seen in the first picture. These plugs can be plugged into the binding posts to make contact with the other side of the post and connect to the usb.
So, when I plug my cable into my computer, it gives me USB malfunction. Although this may be a stupid question, what is potentially the issue causing this malfunction?
Other than my lack of knowledge about how a USB actually works, two obvious issues include using different banana plugs on each wire, and horrendous soldering skills.
