Ummm Oh my god!


I have a digital camara, the USB chord got cut, i tried splicing it...no luck.

Ok, i'll go the their website and order a new one

I spent $80 on the camara...the USB chord is half the price.

what am i missing here?

$44! https://emporium.olympus.com/innards...sku=200776-410

I'd be better off buying a flash memory reader for my PC...

Talk about squeezing the balls of the consumer.

Anyone know where i can get one from other then olympus? i'd think they are a fairly standard thing...maybe i'm wrong though.

It should have no problems. It doesn't have the shielding toroids on the original, but will work fine.

I'm just not sure if there is some built in hardware/software in the end of that stock cable...i guess i'm really not sure whats in those things anyways?

I ordered the $2 one, hopefully it'll work.

The usb cable from newegg that is $2 is an A to B cable. The one for your camera is Type A to a Mini B. Just get the flash card reader. You can find them for like $10.
