    USB cable needs some kind of locking thing

    Is there anything on the market that will lock the connector to the computer?

    Mine always comes loose over time, which locks up the carputer until it is jammed in again.

    superglue? honestly, i dont think there would be, as theres so many different moulded plugs out there. what usb device are you using to make it lock up the pc? i thought if it came loose, you would just loose ability to use whatever is plugged in.

    I use a dedicated USB cable for the Audigy NX, when it comes loose, it will lock up the carputer.

    hmmm guess it's hot glue then.
