USB Extension Cable
Does anyone make a USB extension cable? I have a camera with a non-standard connector (Kodak DC260). I would like to plug it into any of seven workstations in the office without having to crawl down behind the CPU's. I could buy enough cables from Kodak to leave one plugged into each workstation all the time, but the proprietary Kodak USB cables cost $20 each. A standard cable and a hub per workstation would accomplish the same thing, but would probably cost more than the Kodak cables.
An extension cable for $5 or so would be ideal. Who sells them?
Opinions expressed are not necessarily those of my employer...especially regarding working conditions.
