game controller works w/ 1 15ft usb extension, but not 2 15ft cables
i'm running xp w/ service pack 2, and have a Gravis GamePad Pro usb controller.
the controller works fine when plugged directly into a usb port. it also works fine when the controller is plugged into a 15 foot extension(i am estimating the length).
but, it doesnt not work when plugged into 2 15 foot extension cables, i get a error message saying "usb device not recognized. one of the usb devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and windows does not recognize it"
both of the extension cables are usb 2.0 compatible, i purchased them for the same place at the same time.
all of the connections are good, that was the first thing i checked.
and so you dont have to ask, i am running the extensions because i want to play some of my NES an SEGA roms that are on my computer in another room
i would appriciate any help
