I have a USB extension cable that came w/ my keyboard and mouse, I have it on my desk to plug in Thumbdrives, etc.

I am planing on getting a USB3 thumbdrive to replace my Painfully slow 16GB sandisk Cruzer. I was wondering if I plugged in that extension cable into a USB3 port would the drive work at USB3 speeds?

P.S. Any suggestions on 32GB+ USB thumbdrives?
