Hi to everyone at the forum,

I hope you guys can help me out by letting me know what type of cable this is and what it is used for.
I have recently found this cable in a box that was in my basement, but am unsure what type of cable it is.

Kind Regards and thanks already,

It doesn't really help to leave it in the poly bag but as far as I can make out it could be one of two things:

a) coaxial 5 volt power plug drawing on the USB's voltage. 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)

It is a PC to device connector - could be use in external drives, cameras, cellphones, etc.
