Does the one your looking for look like half a hexagon on one side like this: http://img.diytrade.com/cdimg/112060/4830565/0/1196751400/ETM-1302_usb_A_M_to_B_M_print_cable_1_8_m.jpg

\015\012Is so you need a printer usb, you can get them at any store that sell printers. Or does it look the same on both ends like this:

\015\012
\015\012You can also get these at your local retailer. they are regular USB cables.

\015\012If it is a much smaller connection on one end it is a mini USB and you can ask for regular usb to mini usb at the store.
Check Dealextreme.com for a wire that looks like your old one. They're based in China so it takes about two weeks to ship, but shipping is free and the prices are dirt cheap. I've used them a few times before.

It would be too complicated to ask for you to describe the plug to me, so good luck :D
