Old original USB cables will not work as well as new cables if used in a 2.0 USB port. So, yes, there is a difference. I don't think you could go out and purchase a 1.1 cable anymore though, as there is no point. A 2.0 cable will work in both 1.1 and 2.0, but a 1.1 cable will not give you the high speeds even though you can use them in a 2.0.
