    xoom only works with USB Cable that came in the box

    Does anyone know why the XOOM only works with the shipped USB cable? I can use the cable that came with the XOOM with my ETC EVO, but I can't use the cable that came with the EVO with the XOOM, what gives?

    Other "cheaper" cables may or MAY NOT work. It is the same with my Droid X. Weird thing is I have 2 cables from the same company I bought at the same time. One works one does not. Wacky huh!?!

    I have a retractable cable from ReTrak and it works fine on my Xoom.

    DEBIAN DOG: How are you using "the 'bad' one for charging only" when you can't charge a Xoom with a USB cable...only the wall wort. Or were you referring to your Droid X?
