Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works with streaming video We run a streaming video signal over it with no apparent loss of signal. Great solution for extended length USB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as advertised This is a great alternative to a series of hubs and shorter cables. We use it to put a web cam a long way from the computer. I might need another one because we need to get further away still, but daisy chaining these is supposed to work, so it is about as low-maintenance as I could hope for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Web Cam extending I used this product in my home and business to extend my webcams from my PC. I connected 2 together inbetween cam and my PC with no visual loss of quality. Worked perfect even after the cam manufacturer told me it couldn't be done.

I have a Microsoft LifeCam. I tried using a 80 foot cable but it did not work. I only need about 40 feet. Will this cable work with my camera?

Can I use this to connect an external HD with a Blu-ray player to stream movies from my drive? If my external drive has additional USB ports on it, could I use a M2M USB cord to connect to this so I don't even have to unplug the HD from my CPU?

Asked by: Pariah
Our product allows USB 2.0 standard data transmissions. If your devices allow this type of transmission for video playback then the cable should work for you.

Will this Active extension cable send "touch" functionality from a PC to a IFP at 39'? I normally use a 16' usb A to B from IFP to PC to give IFP touch functionality.

Asked by: jason the USB
This will work the same way as the other actives and will send 2.0 signal the full length of the cable.

I want to connect to and provide power for a camera with this cable. Does it transmit power?

Asked by: David
Yes it does transmit power. That adapter will consume 100mA of power to boost the signal. So it will potentially have 400mA of power left over to power a device.

I believe my computer is asking for a driver to use this cable because of the booster. Is this correct? Windows isn't finding the driver automatically. I found USB cable drivers on your site but can't identify correct one if needed. Thanks

Asked by: Ted
This is a plug and play device. It uses the USB generic hub that is built into the Windows OS. I would recommend trying a different USB or possibly a different computer to see if the USB extender is functioning correctly.

Is this cable compatible with Windows 10? We recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Since then our printer, which is connected to existing USB repeater cables, does not work. I suspect the cables are not being recognized by the operating system.

Asked by: Len
Yes this will work with Windows 10
