    The cable to charge & download photos from the Olympus Tough 8000 camera LOOKS like a regular USB cable. But it isn't. It's a "multimedia" cable, and if you lose the original you will be crippled until you get a replacement. This is the replacement cable that you need. It doesn't help that the camera uses an XsPeed data card too. So you'll likely require this cable for downloading photos to your computer as well as charging the battery while it is in the camera.

    I bought this for my Olypmus stay tough camera and it was not the proper fit for my camera as was recommended. The cord still allows a charge for my camera but it has to be in the right position without moving for it to fully charge.

        Comments about CB-USB6 USB Cable for Select Olympus Digital Cameras:

        On unpacking my Oly E-P5, I ignored the included USB (threw it into a drawer somewhere). I have many standard USBs and thought "just another" no big deal. Wrong, this is a proprietary USB that is unique to Oly cams. You will need it for downloading firmware updates. Don't loose it or you will have to pay $ + shipping to get a new one. Note to Oly: Next gen cam should use WiFi for firmware updates.

            I lost my usb cable for the OMD EM-5 and needed to replace it for firmware uploads. I purchased this cable and, as you would expect, it works just fine as it is made by Olympus. You can't go wrong with this cable.

                  Lost my old cord and a replacement seems easy until you try the remaining 30 cords you have at home and none fit. More than a review in regards to product this is really about B&H customer service. Recently I have made two separate trips and the service and knowledge of the staff is amazing.If in need skip the rest save yourself the time and hassle and get what you are actually looking for..

                    This is the Olympus cable for about half the price. I've used it many times to transfer photos from my E-510 and it works fine. It's great to have a second one in addition to one with my desktop PC so I can keep one in my laptop case and not forget it when I travel.

                                        Don't buy those cheap Olympus knock-off cables as my Olympus PEN could not connect through those. As sad as it is that Olympus decided to choose a proprietary USB cable, this one works and lets me upload photos and update camera firmware

                                                I bought this for my Olypmus stay tough camera and it was not the proper fit for my camera as was recommended. The cord still allows a charge for my camera but it has to be in the right position without moving for it to fully charge.

                                                        I called Olympus Customer Service. I needed this cord for my Olympus 7040. (MY NEW PUPPY CHEWED THE ORIGINAL) Olympus told me that they were out out of stock until the end of the month. However if I needed one sooner they recommended I call B&H or [...] not only did they give me the part numbers, they also gave me the correct phone numbers for both stores. Thank You Olympus that truly is Customer Service.

                                                            I bought this as a replacement for the original cable for an 850sw, and it works perfectly. Probably could have bought a cheaper, off brand version.
