Hi everybody!
Being a proud owner of a new imac (yep, switching from windows, first time to have a mac) I must admit I really love this stylish piece of hard and software.
No big trouble yet except one really annoying problem:
I bought a 5 m active USB extension cable to connect a printer but I can't get it working! The cable works fine when connecting a printer/ext. hdd/mouse, etc with my windows laptop but the mac does not detect any devices connected via the cable at all. Connecting devices directly to the mac's USB ports works fine, connecting the same devices via the USB extension does not work.
Any ideas? Thanks for the replies!
