    (Sansa Clip Zip mp3) mini USB cable replacement question

    I lost my mini USB cable for my Sansa Clip Zip Mp3 player so i need a replacement. I've check Amazon.co.uk and I found this:

    Mini USB Data Computer PC Sync Cable Lead For SanDisk MP3/4 Players

    It's only £1.99 but delivery fee is £10 so kinda expensive, now I can find cables cheaper in Denmark but I'm not 100% which will fit the mp3, there are different mini USB connectors, right?

    here is a list of cable, using Danish vendors if anyone can tell me which will work?

    This one is the cheapest on the list
    CPU: Intel i5-3570k (4.5GHz) MB: ASUS Z77 Sabertooth (uefi 2003)
    GPU: Asus 280X TOP (1130MHz/1750MHz) RAM: Corsair LP/LV white 8GB 1600MHz
    SSD: Samsung 840Pro 256GB + Crucial m4 128GB (040H) PSU: Seasonic 620M CASE: Corsair 500R (White/Black) Monitor: 1440p BenQ GW2765HT 1080p LG 237L-BN IPS

    As long as it has the right connections(A or B) there shouldn't be any problem, it is just a USB cable.

    If you're not in a hurry, I order most my tiny cables and other non-important stuff from Dealextreme. The reason for not being in a hurry is that it ships from Asia and generally takes a week or two to arrive at my place in the Netherlands.

    But, the costs are insanely low and shipping is free to anywhere in the world on any order, even if it's under a dollar in total.

    Just make sure not to browse around the website... they have so many useless but fun items that I generally can't leave the website without having a 40$ order.

    According to this thread The clip Zip uses micro USB and not mini USB, so yeah not 100% sure what to get. It's hard to tell what fits. Only reason I know/think the one on amazon will work is because it's got the name of the player in the title.

    Yeah you'd think... I would say it looks like micro USb then?

    Haha, I see your problem now yeah. It's definitely micro though. Mini has a very weird and distinct shape. (I did.. kind of cheat by holding my phone with micro usb next to the image. )

    Micro usb cables @ DX.com

    looks like this should do the trick then:

    USB-A til USB Micro-B

    According to this thread anyway.

    Good thing I didn't get the one from amazon, that was for the Sansa Clip+, why can't they just use the same connection

    Thanks for the help!

    It's about $4 i Denmark with shipping but I'll get it quicker, thanks for the links to DX though.

    Even though I didn't order the cable from this place you mentioned DX.com I just wanted to let you know I ordered a few things like an HDMI cable and a replacement for my Zalman clip-on mic that isn't working anymore, I got this instead for $2.31 you can't complain and the reviews are good. Great website and the free shipping, even if slow, is awesome.
