    USB chords are male on both ends unless you are talking about extension cables.
    What's the cable for?
    There is only one type of "Mini b 4 pin usb cord". Male/female ends only matter if it's an extension cable. Then it would be called a Mini b 4 pin usb extension chord.
    And there's not really any other way to tell you the difference between male and female ends other than asking you to think about men and womens sexual organs.
    One goes inside the other.
    ;)

    Well the USB connection fits into a hole in the computer case and the camera connection fits into a smaller hole in the camera case. So they are both male. But they always are.
    You have already nailed the description of the cable you need with the thread title.
    Ask for one of those and you'll be given the right cable.

    Not all cameras use the same mini connector, you need to get the one that actually fits the camera.

    Well see i asked office depot what kind i needed but all i remember them saying is not in this order but theese words min b 4 pin ....so i put it together to make sence and thats how it made the most sense but i know that they are vary in diffrent genders of the chrords (lol) so i was tryin to figure out ..if maybe the femal was meant a little end i would get the female and if i male means its big i wouldnt get it .cause the slot is real little cause i also remeber the store clerk said thats the smallest slot he've seen...they had one but it was lik 24 dollars for a 10 foot
