Supported cables for USB cable connection

The following cables have been tested by us and/or our beta testers and are guaranteed to work. Please do yourself a favor and order one of these if you want to use a cable with Total Commander. For other cables, make sure that you can return them if they do not work. See the end of this page for a list of cables which do not work.

Note: The Windows Easy Transfer software is required on Windows XP. If it isn't included with your cable, you can download it from Microsoft directly. The driver is included in Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. Unfortunately older Windows versions are not supported. See the frequently asked questions (FAQ) page for known problems (e.g. with Windows XP 64 bit).
