    which type of usb connector is used for usb host purpose. I have one usb connector i have attached, this connector having only 4 pins, but as per usb host connection required 5 pins that is d+,d-,vcc,gnd and ID.
    so will it work if connect 4 pins (d+,d-,vcc and gnd)?
    or i have to connect id too?
