Actually Sony said, " use the supplied cable ". Which can be understood as " only use our cable " or " use a cable like the one supplied "

OK, I'll buy that.

You'd be amazed what people can jam into holes they are not meant for.

Back in the days of parallel ports, I had someone zap my computer because they were fumbling around with the cable, plugging it in when it was turned on, and crossing pins while fumbling for a connection. Not too expensive to get fixed, but was annoying. Anything that can make connections foolproof is OK by me!
