    11 pin USB : compatibility question

    I just received a desktop cradle for my new touch diamond, but I see it has standard mini USB (7 pin ??) and not the special 11 pin htc version.

    I believe that this will not work for audio, which uses the extra pins, but is it ok for charging and data transfer?

    Or should I send the item back to ebay seller ...

    Look again! The HTC (sprint version) has a different design. 1 end is straight. I found out the hard way. My battery got very warm hooked up to pc for file xfer. Not sure why the redesigned the mini usb...lame.

    yeah the design is different but a standard miniusb cable still fits.. not a problem at all... i use the charger from my moto when im at work and the htc charger when at home.. also use a regular miniusb for my data transfers as well as activesync.. havent had any problems as of yet

    I actually just registered to find out if I could use my old Sprint Moto Q data cable with my HTC Touch Pro. I just tried it, holding my breath. It works fine. I'm not sure about any heat issues yet.

    I have an old auto charger for my Q too. Would that be safe to use as well? I'm more nervous about charging than data transfer, I guess.
