K4NT: Special USB Cable?

Does the Kindle 4 use a special USB cable at all?

I tried connecting it to two separate PC's recently with other generic Micro USB cables and it sent the Kindle into a loop of displaying the 'Connected to USB/Charging' screen and turning back on again. This was accompanied by the usual noises that Windows puts out to signify a USB device has been connected, then removed, then connected, then removed and so on ad infinitum.

I then used the USB cable that was supplied and it worked perfectly fine.

The cables attempted to use work for other devices with a Micro-USB port and the other end was plugging into a port directly on my PC, i.e. no USB hub.

Any ideas?
