USB cable

Hi guys,

I've found that most micro usb cables don't work well with the reader. I'd like to buy some spares. Does anyone have a link to ones that work and charge properly from the PC (I'm in the UK)?

Thanks!

Strange, I used a coworker's Samsung Galaxy S cable to do some file copy without any problem (however, I didn't used it for charge).

I have found in my collection of cables that some work better and some not so with my Sony Readers. I seem to have the most problems getting my 950 to recognize that its plugged in unless I use THE cable that came with it. The others are not so pickly.

I have bought from Monoprice before and the USB cables they sent are just fine with my 650.

I cannot say if they ship outside the USA or not. But give them a try and see if they do.

out of 3 that I have, only one for a mobile phone works. It's like some can't carry enough power.
