I found a USB cord and found out that The black wire in the controller is ground.
I put the two together and connected the others and IT WAS READ BY MY PC.
I just cracked my classic controller open and noticed a wiring scheme similar to USB, with black, white, green, yellow, and red wires.
My theory here is to wire it like you would an xbox controller for USB connection (ditch yellow and connect the rest.)
I don't have any extra USB cords to splice at the moment though.
If this is old news just lock
