[ask] data cable for firmware upgrade

The bundled data cable for sansa clip plus is very very short, I always use my creative zen touch’s data cable to transfer songs to the sansa clip plus, since it’s longer, and use the same interface, which is mini usb, so when it comes to firmware upgrading, should I use the bundled cable or just any other cable such as my creative’s cable ?

Use the longer one. It is the exact same either way.
