Ok here is your USB leason:

There are 3 normal versions of USB cables 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0 (there is 3.0 now also) so that covers the versions

Now there are:
USB-A to USB 5 Pin Mini-B
USB-A to USB 4 Pin Mini-B
(there are also some odd sizes for special uses, but these are the normal type)

You need a USB v2.0 - 5 Pin Mini-B to connect your precedent to your computer for data transfer. A 4 Pin Mini-B or 5 Pin v1.x will most likely allow it to charge, but will not transfer data.

So basically just use the wire that came with your phone or buy a Samsung USB cable. Just because a USB cable worked on some old phone of yours does not mean it will work on this phone. It will most likely be a USB v1.0 or v1.1 and will not allow you to transfer data.

Hope this helps,
