It's my understanding that when hooking the audya 4 to computer your supposed to use the weird little plug on the back of the computer (for installing update) rather then the normal usb ports on the front.......... yes or no?

Assuming that is true, I went to buy a cable to do this today and the only thing I found that looked like that was called a
"printer cable". Will that work or is there some other more special cable to go in search of?
