Closed USB3 Tags: Extension USB3 Cable USB Components Product Last response: January 12, 2012 7:23 AM in Components Share PrvtChurch January 11, 2012 7:43:40 PM 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?
