USB Cable

Anyone know where I can source an original Olympus USB cable for my E-M10 II, or does anyone have one they'd like to sell me?

It's the one and only thing I can never find when I need it! Bought one from eBay, but needless to say it doesn't work (very loose in the camera socket and rattles around/falls out) and is on it's way back to the seller.......

EDIT: OK, cancel that. After locating the pristine box for the camera, the original USB cable is in threre in it's original sealed polythene bag! It works fine as well. Does updating the firmware wipe out MYSETS? If so, I need to get filling in a spreadsheet first......

When you use the Olympus Udater Programme, you have an option to save all of your settings. And to re-load them.

Updating firmware usually does that for you anyway. I say usually because there was an update that did not. Back up anyway is my advice, as said there is an option there........

I don't think the backup option applies to the E-M10 II but will check tonight. Thanks.
