All it is is a printer usb cable.If you own a printer you own one of these cables.

Jeep---any luck getting your cable---My firestorm did not come with one either--I bought one from a friend that works on computers for 2 bucks--but I still don't know how to download sounds :confused:

Brykespapa - go to this link

http://www.gofoxpro.com/resources/program2.php

install the programming utility and follow the instructions on the page.

in a nutshell, you connect the usb cable to the caller and your pc. turn on the caller and fire up the software if it doesn't come up automatically (I don't recall) then do a backup which will copy all the sounds on your caller to your pc. you can edit the position, add/remove sound files with the programming utility. once you have your list the way you want it, you will need to sync your remote to the caller by connecting the audio cable from the aux port on the firestorm to the remote and there will be a msg on the remote to turn on the caller.

I am telling you from memory and this info may not be 100% correct. let me know if you can't figure it out from what I told you and I will make some changes to mine and document it better for you.

you don't really have to use the utility to copy and delete files. when you plug the usb to between the caller and the pc, it gives you another drive letter just like a camera and you can do it all in Windows Explorer if you like, but you still need to sync the remote to the caller when you get the files on the caller that you want. hope this helps!
