Hi, you'll need an A-to-B USB cable. The type A connector (the long flat one) connects to your PC, and the type B connector (the squarish looking one with two cut-off corners) connects to the printer. The cable should look like this one:

It should be USB 2.0 rather than 1.1, and it should be long enough to reach from your computer to your printer, with a little bit of slack.

Hope that helps!

You will need a USB cable to connect the printer to your computer. The USB has Type A on one end and Type B on the other. You can purchase this from any electronic shops around your area or you can also call Lexmark Technical Support to request for one. Lexmark printers that are capable of wireless connection have a Wifi light (usually found on the upper right corner on its front face). But before you're able to connect wireless successfully, you will still need to connect the printer to your computer temporarily with the usb cable for configuration. Hope this helps.

Nothing happens when i plug my usb cable into my computer with the tomtom ONE

start tomtom home if it does not start automaticlly when you turn on your tomtom and connect it to your computer..if you dont have tomtom home, you can get it HERE.

if its still not connecting try another usb cable although im not sure in that one disconnects from the home dock on the 910

( i assume your using the home dock because thats the only way a 910 will hook up to a computer)

I just bought a new DELL computer with the windows vista program. I alredy instaled the software for my Lexmar X1240 printer with the 1200 series disck. I can not print because each time I try to a window...

This is from the Lexmark Support page:

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model. (From Lexmark Support)
· Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

Here's the support page:

We recently bought a LexMark printer, but we noticed the USB cable was missing, can can we do?

You should immediately take your receipt back to the store from which you bought the LexMark and tall them your box did not contain the USB cable that should have been there. If you have a reputable dealer, they will give you a new cable and then they can go back to LexMark and obtain a replacement for their store.

I suppose if that doesn't work, go to LexMark's website and post a request to them. They will, in all probability, provide a cable to you at no cost.
