Subject: Re: Archos USB A-Male to A-Male against USB Law !!!
From: Chris Muth (rockbox_at_muth.cc)

Hey,

Take a look at the device.
A USB "B" connector would fit on the board where the current "A" resides!
You might have to take your JBR's face plate to fully realize what I am saying.

You can get A-A cables at just about anyplace that caries a nice selection of USB cables.
