USB Cable issue

I have a cable I brought for my tablet that works, and a brand new Amazon Basics USB 3 cable which doesn't. I have a feeling the problem is that the USB 3 cable connector I push into the camera is 'taller' than the other one.

Has anyone else had this? Wondering if my best option is to return the cable and buy a different one, or shave the plastic connector.

I've shaved the plastic housing on several cables. For me, it's easier than returning and buying replacements that may or may not have the same issue.
