Regular mini-usb cable fits

When I first got the Imagio I looked at the connector and realized it was proprietary and different from a normal mini-usb connector. I went on Ebay and ordered 2 data cables that were listed to work with the Imagio. I was puzzled when I got the package and the 2 cables were standard mini-usb cables. I was even more surprised when I realized they fit and work fine in the Imagio,

Re: Regular mini-usb cable fits

The first thing I noticed was the odd shaped connector on the cable and decide it was different that normal mini usb. Guess I'm the only dummy that did that lol

Well yes it is shaped different, but if you notice it's just a mini-USB with one corner pulled out and squared off, so a normal mini-USB will still fit as you mentioned. Otherwise it's no different.

Re: Regular mini-usb cable fits

Haha... yes, any normal Mini-USB connector will fit. The Ext-USB connector is pretty much an extended version of that standard, just with some extra pins for additional features.

I learned this the hard way when my friend and I were trying to find a USB cable for his touch diamond (before I'd ever used an HTC phone), we went around to lots of places looking for a USB cable before giving up, only to find out later that a basic cable works just as well.

It is a proprietary plug that is designed to fit a standard mini-plug usb also. http://wiki.xda-developers.com/index...agename=ExtUSB

Nope, I did the same thing. Went to ebay and paid $3.99 for the cable, when I had a bunch here already.
