USB Cable Not Recognised?


Recommended Posts



I got a 10 metre USB 2.0 cable for my printer and i hae connected it to my computer running Windows XP. It says that the USB is an unknown device. I think i might need some sort of driver but that seems odd for a simple USB cable.


Info for USB Cable:

USB 2.0

10 Metres

Male A - Female B


Thanks for any help,

According to this the maximum is 5 meters without a hub:



Was the cable custom made?
