Hey guys, idk if this is the right place to be asking about this, but I am making a handheld Raspberry Pi retro game console, and I made a custom controller with a Teensy++ 2.0. This board uses a Mini USB cable to interface with the Raspberry Pi. I wanted to solder it directly to the Pi's USB 2.0 port so that I could save space and so I wouldn't have a USB plug sticking out of my Pi at all times. I programmed the Teensy, and everything works great, but when I wire it directly to the Pi, the controller is not recognized. I'm not sure why that is happening. Below is a picture of my soldering. I'm also using the same cable I used to program the board, so I know it should work. I might just have to buy another cable or get a Mini USB breakout board.
