OK just to clarify,

The drive will only work when plugged into a USB extension cable, it will not work when i connect it without the USB extension cable.
The drive comes with a USB 3 connecting cable that plugs into the drive and then into the Mac, but using this method does not work.
To get the drive to work I use the same USB connecting cable that came with the drive and instead of plugging it directly into the mac, I have to use a USB extension cable and plug the drive into that and then plug the other end into the Mac. It will now work as normal.
So the USB 2 extension cable I only use to get the thing working, it should work without it but it doesn't
