USB cable fault ?

  bob308w 13:00 08 Aug 06

When printing photo's using Adobe photoshop album starter ed.3.00 I occasionally get the message that there is a connection fault and to check cable. Entering the photo again (without touching the cable) usually works. My question is; would a more expensive USB cable make any difference to this problem? Also, what IS the diference between a £5 USB canle and a £12 one?

Probably not a lot - it's what customers are prepared to pay in many cases although, obviously, there's quality and quality.

It's the same with Scart cables...-)

I have never found any difference in performance between cheap and dearer usb cables. I doubt your intermittent problem is actually due to the cable unless one of the connectors is actually loose.

Thanks for the advice, will look elsewhere for cause.
