Re: Using a USB extension cord

Jim Stutsman

In theory, yes. (I want to live in Theory - everything works there!) However some devices are not "hub friendly". I have used a hub to connect a single machine, but not multiple. A lot of it depends on the software in the computer. It looks for a specific identifier to locate the machine in the USB hierarchy. If both machine are the same, say 15000 and 15000, you might not get the one you want when connecting.
