Need a replacement USB cable for Wacom Bamboo Fun

I have a first generation Wacom Bamboo Fun Tablet, model: CTE-450
Tablet and pen are fine, thank goodness. The USB cable is broken from being twisted at a stupid angle too often. If I knew what I was doing, I might be able to strip the wires, patch them up and swaddle it all in electrical tape. But I have no idea what I'm doing, so I'd like to track down a new cable in case I make things worse.

If I recall correctly, the Bamboo Fun is discontinued. The main Wacom site's first gen cables are out of stock, I looked. I don't have paypal either. Why must the internet make finding accessories for computers so difficult? xD

So, if anyone could direct me to a site/store that sells first generation USB cables? Much obliged.

If you're not able to buy one, you can probably find somebody who will repair it. That's what I had to do with mine, because Wacom doesn't make cables for the Intuos3 anymore (and the darned thing isn't even removable to begin with :shakefist: so even if you do manage to find a new cable, you still have to solder it in place).

If I can ask, what's it called and where did you get it? My cable just broke too :(

Yeah, crazy huh? Have a root around a computer shop and see if you can find a match? :)
