Topic # 94016 4-Dec-2011 13:07 Send private message

Have been working on setting up my iTunes server (usb2 eMac).

Looking for a local retailer with white USB 2 mini cables (iTunes library stored on these). I am surprised to find this difficult.

I have already got a white power cable and white Ethernet cable.

Thoughts?

Jon

Have you tried www.cdlnz.com - most of their cables come in different colours :)

Just checked, no coloured cables...

Dealextreme looks promising, and some of the guys have commented on them being good, but a bit unsure of them.

I have one mini white here but it's power only. I have two micro white here from my Kindle and HTC smartphone - I have plenty of other micro USB so wouldn't be a problem to spare those, but it's not what you need/want it seems.

Tried that before I started a new forum topic.

Given this topic is the top hit on googleit this obviously isn't a common request.

My spray paint suggestion was very tongue in cheek hence the emoticons.  Though done with the right product could be a good solution.

For an even better idea you could paint your flash eMac black.  Tongue Out

Seriously though it is quite frustrating when the stuff you want like this is hard to come by.

Sorry I wasn't more specific. The warehouse one is not really a bright white like a iPod cable, more an off white/light grey to me. I will see if they have any at my local to inspect as the photo might not do it justice.

Remember, the mini I have is power only, no data. The micro ones are micro USB.
