OP never said it was USB 2, only stated it was USB. Posted a link to a USB 2 extension cable.

What model mac and OS are you using?

The only thing I can think of, is the connection on the iMac is tighter with the extension cable plugged in and not with the EHD cable plugged in (you would have to get another USB 3 cable to test this).

iPad 2 iOS 8, iPhone 4s iOS 8, iPhone 6 iOS 8.
