I haven't had much exposure to Windows 8, and while doing some research I came across a usb transfer cable that says it's designed for Windows 8. So that leads to my question, does Windows 8 require a certain type of cable to do transfers? If so, what type of usb, or even firewire, cables work for Windows 8?
And if that really is the case, how does Windows 8 recognize what kind of cable is attached? I thought any type of cable would work with any OS.
