CTX 3030 USB Data Cable Missing

Post by detectorman5050 » Fri Nov 02, 2018 7:48 pm

I've just realised that the CTX USB data cable is missing from the box. Can't go back to the seller now, as I bought it months ago.

Can someone please confirm the it's just a standard USB A to USB B cable?

If so I can get one for a few quid.

Thanks.

The online shops seem to think so. :D

Good idea, will check my printer cable first. I really could do without adding yet another cable to my ever growing collection!

[EDIT] Printer cable is a perfect fit. ::g ::g ::g

This might help another CTX owner. My machine was also missing the USB charging cable for the WM10 wireless unit.

I have found that the USB cable from an external computer DVD/CD drive did the trick for the above.

So before running out and buying a cable, a good idea is to rummage through your drawers first. ::g
