Cable seems to work fine. However, the USB plug end is very hard to push in. Afraid it might damage the port on my computer. Tried it in several ports and compared to other cables. To confirm that it is the cable and not the port.
Apple products are notorious for being difficult to find a non-apple cord, etc. that will work as well as one of theirs. I was elated to find that this would allow data xfer but oddly enough it won't charge my ipod. You'd think that would be the easier of the two functions for a cord to perform.
