Maximum length of USB extension cable? (For USB 2.0) I run the USB cable away from the machine and plug it in something to the other end. How long can a maximum cable be and how it's called officially when abroad would I like to order it (because maybe it's cheaper)?

16 feet is considered to be the maximum but you can extend it by plugging the "cold" end into a powered hub where you can plug in a further 16 foot cable. You can extend using further hubs to a maximum of 5 hubs.
