Knownothing is on a distinguished road

I was on the phone with apple and was told if I wanted to get information from my mac (which is having problems and will need to be returned to factory settings), I will need a firewire cable that is 800 to 800. So far I have only found things labeled "Firewire 800 cable" or "FireWire 800 to 400". My question is, is "FireWire 800 Cable" the same thing? And if not where could I find the real thing on the internet?

Here's a fw 800 cable

For only $5.50 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 9 PIN/ 9PIN BETA FireWire 800 - FireWire 800 Cable, 6FT, CLEAR | 9 - 9 pin IEEE-1394B Firewire Cables


Generally speaking though, something labelled fw800 (only) should be fw800 connectors on both ends
