I recently came into possession of a Sony a6000 mirrorless with many accessories. The one thing that is missing is the data transfer cable for downloading photo's from camera to PC. For reasons known only to Sony, the data xfer cable port and the battery recharge port are two different size mini cable ports. I have the charge cable. Does anyone know where I can get info on the appropriate transfer cable? I've tried various web sites but seem to get bogged down. Looking forward to some shoot time soon.

the charging port and data transfer port are probably the same port. the other port you're looking at is the hdmi port you use to hook your camera up to your tv.

it's a standard micro usb to usb male cord. your can buy one in a lot of stores or order online. you probably have a ton of them lying around the house since they came with most android devices for about 10 years until they were replaced by usb-c. but if you have to buy a cord you'd be better off buying a card reader instead. it will transfer the files quicker.

Thanks Nokk. I appreciate the input. I think we have the correct cable nailed down now. If not, I can pull the SD card and dump the files to my computer. This is my first mirrorless, but I have over 50 years with SLR's, both film and digital, Blad's, and large format studio cameras, as I worked as a professional studio and location photog for many years, so the basics more or less apply. I am amazed at the clarity of the Sony images, and as this camera is 6 years old, I can only imagine the improvements made in that time. Thanks again for your help. Hopefully, I'll be able to capture some images for posting that do this forum justice.
