Sony Cybershot USB cable covered by the warranty?

\015 I got this camera (and obviously the cables it came with) for Christmas, 5 weeks ago. Today I plug it in and the USB cable seems to have gone bust. Otherwise it's the camera, but I don't wanna think about that right now. Anyway, after chatting online with tech support for about 15 minutes and trying every possible solution, she suggested I buy a new USB cable. Now, maybe I'm just sticking to principle too hard here, but I feel it's not on me to buy a new USB cable to replace one I've had for 5 weeks. I get that they're cheap, and I COULD get one if I have to, but I'm stubborn. I have the warranty next to me and its not specific enough either way. Here's a pdf of it: http://www.docs.sony.com/release/Warranty_214863512.pdf\015\012What are your thoughts? If I'm wrong I'm wrong, no worries. But this tech wouldn't give me her id, saying they don't have them, and I also never received a transcript of the chat. I DID take screenshots, at least. Just seems fishy.\015

Well, I don't know what you mean by the cable went "bust". I do know that pros don't bother with the cables...they use a card reader to transfer their pics to their computers. Try it...you'll like it.
