The D800 cable is USB 3 for much faster file transfer to a USB 3 computer than older style USB 2.

USB 3 needs a "full size" USB connection with the USB 3 notch at the camera end.

The Nikon cable has an extra plastic part at the camera end to prevent the cable from accidentally being pulled out. At first my cable was not 100% reliable but since using it about 7 times it works perfect every time.

Producing good quality photographs, or being good at sport or art, involves a little more than buying appropriate equipment. Practice, some learning and perhaps natural talent often play a bigger role than the equipment in your hands.
