usb extension cable

  Jule 10:56 09 May 2006

i have recently bought a digital camera and would like to connect it to my pc as well as directly to the printer. at the moment i have to pull the tower out each time to reach the usb port and would like to know if there is an extension lead i can buy to connect the usb port at the back and which will remain free to use from the front to make it easier to connect usb cables. i would appreciate if anyone can tell me what exactly to look for.

Note that cameras as well as scanners and some other things can be very temperamental about being operated via a hub - powered or otherwise. Best to connect direct via cable - even and extended one. Cheaper too!

Sorry that should read " - - - an extended one."

Seems to be a lot of spare "d"s around today.
