I have recently found this cable in a box that was in my basement, but am unsure what type of cable it is.

Some Lacie drives use this type of plug. It could also be the same but for a cellphone. b) proprietary mini-USB (can't see well enough to tell whether it's round or what) Related resources What type of Ethernet cable should I use? - Forum Insight hd cable , need to open case?
