No, it won't. The socket on the scanner is not a mini-USB.

And you will need to use a serial port on the computer, not a USB.

Or a USB to serial adaptor from the computer.

The Uniden USB-1 cable has a USB to serial adaptor built in, and the Uniden connector on the scanner end.

I use this from radio shack with the proper cable to the scanner. Gigaware 6-ft. USB-A to Serial Cable : Gigaware Cables | RadioShack.com and it works very well.
