Hope this is the right place to put this.

I brought the Printer of TM, the seller said in her auction the USB to printer cord is lost I thought no problem I could just grab another usb cord. Comes with everything else mains lead, CD drivers and USB to Camera cord.  Also I should of done some research before I clicked the buy now but no I do the research after I get the printer! I read a review that the printer chip will lock you out when ink is low until you buy a new Canon only cartridge this printer doesn't take refills!

So can I go and buy a USB cord any type as long as it fits or do I have to get the right type?

Any cord so long as it has USB A (most common plug)at one end and USB B (squarish with 2 beveled corners)at the other.

I use this CIS system (RIHAC) for my Epson printer, it works really really well, I highly recommend the product and their service. I don't print photos, just documents, but both are meant to work well. Ink cost is about 90% less than Epson/Canon.

The iP 4200 uses the same ink as my iP 4500, I stopped using the Canon ink once it was out of guarantee and now get my ink from Inkvenus in Auckland the ink cartridges have a chip and are fully compatible.
