Calculators Can you use any USB cable on Ti89?

  1. May 21, 2008 #1
    Hey guys,

    I have a ti89 but I lost the USB cable that came with the calculator. I am trying to transfer some data to the calculator, but can I use any regular USB cable to do so? Thats what I read when I searched, but when I use the USB cable that came with my digital camera it says "TI 89 CONNECTED, BUT COULDNT GET STATUS". After it says that on the Device Explorer, the TI 89 screen shuts off.

    Any suggestions? Should I try a different USB cable?
