Is there a difference in the USB connectors that are used to connect an iPhone to a Macbook Pro?

I recently bought a few of the inexpensive connectors online and I'm sporadically receiving the yellow exclamation mark error screen on my iPhone and sometimes won't connect at all with iTunes.

I'm trying to figure out if this is the cheap connectors I purchased or could there be a problem with either my iPhone or my Maccbook Pro. Both are under a year old.

If there is a difference, what are the best connectors to purchase?


MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.2)
