this is one of those threads that someone will obviously reply to that any USB cable will work.... but oddly enough, only the USB cable that came with my FB+ has ever worked for me.

Wasn't it because the USB isn't routed all that well and that's why you have to keep cable lengths short? Maybe a ferrite would help, too.

Here is what I found. I emailed Richard Hutchinson when I acquired an extra original flashboy that didnít have a cord. He said any high quality cord would work. In my experience this is true. I tried both the cord that came with my other flashboy and the cord that came with my newer flashboy plus and they both worked. Then I tried some cheap ones that came with my sons two power wheels cars and they didnít work and another random one didnít. I grabbed a nice one that came with my wifeís Cricut machine and it worked and the one for my gps worked.

The one that came with my PS3 has always worked fine for me.

Not all USB cables are created equal. Cables that are intended solely for charging may only have 5V and Ground wired, which is probably why those Power Wheels cables and the random one didn't work. I expect the ones for the newer Flashboy, Cricut machine, and your GPS worked because those devices can/need to communicate with a PC or another device.
