I have an i960 coming and need to get a cable. On Canon's Web site, the
only hint at what kind of connector is on the printer was in one FAQ which
mentioned a "squarish" connector.

From this, I'm guessing that it's what the cable listings call a "type B"
(as opposed to the flat "type A" which I have on my PC and scanner).

Is that it?

It's exactly the same cable as used anything - type A to type B.

Hmmm... Mild embarrassment here.

I plugged in my USB scanner several years ago and never looked at it
again. For some reason remembered it as having a "type A" connector. On
reading your reply, I reached behind it and pulled out the connector and
find that it is indeed a "squarish" connector, so obviously a "type B".

Thanks ...
