so. i purchased like 4 usb 2.0 cable extenders for 6 feet.. when ever i plug them into a device, windows says usb has malfunctioned.

what should i do?
alot of people say i need a powered usb hub because the usb cant get enought power because its going very far and it loses the power over the 6 foot.
any recommendations on which hub i should get. ps i live in canada.

or if u hav any other suggestions besides plug it into another computer

I have heard that USB 2.0 does not like cables that are longer then 10 feet... i have gotten a bit longer than that but dont expect too much. what are you trying to do?
