Retractable Sync Cable

Does anyone know where to get a retractable sync cable at a decent price for the Touch Pro? I have a couple of mini USB retractable cables, but they don't allow me to sync or explore the device from the PC.
Thanks!

Re: Retractable Sync Cable

Any normal micro usb cable should let you charge and sync the Touch Pro fine. The proprietary shape is just to support the video out. I doubt the cable at that site's the proprietary plug and it's expensive for a typical cable.

Re: Retractable Sync Cable

Not so, I've had problems tethering with all of my retractable USB cables. You need ones with three wires (3 conductor) cables, not ones with only two.

I found one at Frys that worked. It was the Belkin 5-Pin Mini-B Retactable USB 2.0 Cable. Part Number F3U138v03-RTC

Office Depot or Staples might carry it too. You can see the three wires in the packaging.

Re: Retractable Sync Cable

I have 3 mini USB retractable cables, none of them allow me to sync/explore and $14 for a $2 cable seems ridiculous...will look for the Belkin.
Thanks!

Re: Retractable Sync Cable

Ah, thanks for the clarification. I had a feeling that a microusb isn't just a microusb cable due to the problems you were having, but that makes sense.

I second the Belkin. Got it at Fry's for really cheap. Works fine.

Just to clarify...I'm pretty sure that the TP uses MiniUSB not micro.

Re: Retractable Sync Cable

One of my favorite cables when I had my Titan was the Plug it BeetleSD for mini USB devices.
or
Plug it Classic for mini USB devices

These are not retractable, but they are very useful.
