    Probably not.

    You could pick up a USB cord at any electronics shop, or even a department or drug store.

    Like big mike said, it's better if you go to an electronic shop. I'm sure you'll find it.

    Why do you need the USB cord....no memory card reader?

    Is your camera your only usb device? I have some from prior cameras, gps, mp3 player, palm device....they come with so many things. Heck, post a wanted on your local freecycle board, someone should have an extra. (My hubby wanders off with mine. I bought a sparkly one and he never touches it now :))

    It's just a standard A->B USB cord. Pretty much every device that uses USB in existence comes with those silly things.

    BTW for those commenting on flash readers... he has a D80. D80 runs CF. CF uses pins. Popping CF cards in and out is a scary scary thing. Pull one of those pins and you're in for an instant 'spensive repair.

    If you are going to Radio Shack, just get a memory card reader instead.
