    I recently brought a 15m usb active extension cable, I tried to run a blue snowball ice microphone to my computer with it. When I plug it into my computer it receives power but the computer won't detect it's there. There is a repeater in the middle of the cabel (7.5m), is there any way to make it so the computer will detect it's there? Thanks, would appreciate any help!

    USB 2, but then why do they put a repeater at 7.5m and not 5?

    dont know I'm afraid , perhaps the manufacturer has found it works at 7.5m OK - but your cable does not
    and the spec and the site i linked to shows whats required
