USB cable length and samsung printer

Hi Experts

I have been experience this problem recently.

I have got a USB printer when I connect it through a new 5 m USB (non brand name, and not faulty) cable it didn't work but when I connect the same printer via 1.5 m it works.

I tried the same printer on desktop and laptop

Is the USB cable quality an issue ? mean If I got a quality brand that problem shouldn't happen ?

I had been experiencing similar issue with other USB devices when I used USB extension cables , laptop or desktop couldn't recognize USB devices (USB stick, printer, etc)

Regards

  1. Yes, that cable is bad or simply poor quality. USB should be good to about 8 meters with a good quality cable.
