I recently upgraded to a D800 but I was disappointed with the supplied usb cable. It doesn't look like any other usb cable I own. Nothing like the popular type for my D600, so it does cause inconvenience when transferring files from different bodies.

Am I missing something, or is there a reason for the dual plug usb??

It is the USB3 standard that adds the other connector. This is not a Nikon specific connector

You can still use USB2 cables - just plug it into the smaller of the two connectors on the camera

USB3 has blue on the computer end inside plastic

I always thought the other connector on a D800 was an HDMI output port not a USB2 port.

Are you saying the HDMI port can be used for USB2 transfers using a USB2 cable, and have you actually used it in this way? As far as I know the HDMI port can only be used to connect to a display of some sort.
