The cable you linked to should be fine. The one Luis linked to has a ferrite choke on the cable to block electrical noise.

All of my camera cables (3) include that choke...that's how I distinguish them from other USB cables I have.  More Info.

I've got camera cables with and without.

 

I've also used alternate "without" cables interchangeably with the "with" version and never seen any difference in behavior or photo quality.

good morning my dear friends,

 

i thank all who replied to my earlier post

 

the suppled usb cable that came with my canon powershot a 1400 doe not have that ferrite chocke

 

i have found this cable from amazon

 

https://www.amazon.com/Canon-PowerShot-A1400-Digital-Compatible/dp/B00BUAKGUI

 

i am not sure if this cable is a special cable only for canon powershot series or if it is a standard cable usb mini like this

Both your links are a standard USB A to a mini b connector. Any of the cables you posted will work.

i thank you so much dear friend johnc_21 for the reply

 

now, i have realized that the cable must be usb type a to mini type b cheap or expensive, and i also assume that this cable is compatible with other brands / models 

 

i thank you once again very much

I have said this before elsewhere, but you do not need to use a cable between the camera and your computer. Just pop the SD card out and plug it into your computer. If you use a laptop nearly every laptop has an SD card slot. Plug the card into this and use Windows/File Explorer to transfer the images directly to your hard drive. If you have a desktop or other computer without an SD slot then use a USB card reader and do exactly the same. Card readers are widely and cheaply available.

 

This method also has the advantage of not running down your camera batteries.
