The shipping (either really slow or really expensive) on surface mount USB plugs appears to make actually fixing it probably not worthwhile. (Not much in the way of electronics suppliers out here.)

Just cut a cheap USB cable, and solder it on.

You're right, that wasn't a problem a useless old proprietary cable, a pairing knife, electrical tape, a soldering iron and 20 minutes couldn't fix.

I really do need to work on getting better tools for working with wires though.
