Default Where can you buy a USB OTG lead?

Does anyone know where you can get a USB OTG lead (preferably in Europe)? Is it just a USB cable with standard wiring?

If you can't buy these, can anyone tell me the USB connectors used? One end is a standard female port but what connects to the A2?

As far as I can tell it's a standard small 4 pin USB connector...
You could try and make one by connecting the two pin-for-pin.

Good luck.

I don't get why the connector looks a different shape to the regular USB connector on the A2...

it's a mini-A female USB port. It's usually use for USB OTG. It's a USB standard port but very few devices uses it. I've been trying to find a spare for mine since the first day I got my A2 but still couldn't till today...

So what connector is the female USB-charging port on the A2?

And can't you just buy a male connector from an electronics shop or something?

Default found one!

I've found one:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...fvi%3D1&_rdc=1

I contacted this seller about another cable that I thought might do the job, and they steered me towards this one for the cowon A2. The shape of the smaller plug is not the same shape at the OTG socket, but it works anyway. It arrived today and has been tested with a large video file transfer from a USB stick.

Hurray!

I found this other one on the bay.

Althought the shape on the OTG socket is different, it works (I've tried using the standart usb cable with my friend's A3, and it works)

HOpe this helps.
