Thanks for the good words.

Liitle googling says:
DKU-2 is a straight passthrough cable, no chips or logic in it
whatsoever... just wires connecting the phone connectors to the USB
connector. This works for phones with native USB connectivity. DKU-2
is used for models with external memory (6620, 7610, 6630, 3230, 6230,
668x, 9300, 7710, 9500, 3200)

DKU-5 has a chip in it to emulate a serial port through the USB
connector. This is for phones without native USB connectivity. DKU-5
is used for models WITHOUT external memory (6100, 3100, 3120, 3200,
3220, 6610, 7210, 7250, 68xx, 6200, 6220)

So in fact there are two main differences:
 - each one supports different models
 - dku-5 will work with standard serial driver in the operating
system, dku-2 needs a separate driver to support it (one for Linux is
included in gnokii distribution).

take care,
