A USB 2 cable will be made to slightly better specifications. It probably wouldn't make any difference in normal use. But if you got a very fast device using the full bandwidth of USB 2 it would. It's a like IEEE 1284 cables and "printer cables". You must use the 1284 cable with some printers. For other printers, it doesn't matter.

But when it matters, it matters. :D
