AmazonBasics USB A to Lightning Compatible Cable

I ran into an issue using the AmazonBasic's USB A to Lightning Compatible Cable with the latest iPhone 5s. My music and video got deleted from my phone when I left it connected to the computer overnight. The data wasn't gone from the phone as it was still using the disk space.

I am not sure exactly what happened, as the cable was working find for a couple of weeks. I don't know if Apple did an updated that changed the Lightning code to make this cable in effective.

Recently I notice an alert on the phone that said, "Accessory may not be supported." So I am guessing that this cable is no longer a charging and data transfer cable.

I solved my missing music and videos issue by connecting the iPhone 5s with the Apple cable that came in the box. Within minutes iTunes recognized the issue and put the music and video back.

My advice would be to get the cable to use as the wall charger and use the cable that came in the box as the computer charger.
