Customer Question

I just purchase a used Sony DSC H-300 Cyber Shot camera. It did not come with a USB cable. I am trying to find out what kind of a USB cable it takes. I purchased a micro UDB cable, but the connection to the camera is still big and will not fit. Any suggestions?
JA: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: DSC-H300, 20.1 Mega Pixels 35X Optical Zoom, 25mm Wide Angle Screen. The serial number is(###) ###-#### The camera itself works fine, but I have to have a way to download pictures.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I just received the camera yesterday. I bought the micro USB cable last night and it doesn't fit in the slot. That's all I've done.
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, that's all.
