I’m trying to connect 8 devices of WD, 1TB Portable HDD, USB 3.0 Compatible, ‘WDBPCK0010BBK-01’, to one computer with 8 USB 3 ports.
when I attach all 8 devices, they work just fine. but i need them to be connected via another cable, to put them somewhere 1.5 meters away, a usb 3.0 extender.
now, when i connect only one HDD, the computer recognize it. when I attach more than 2, the computer begins with not recognizing the devices, although all 4 are connected via different USB cards, which are all connected to the mother board.
Might the extender length is the problem, or is it something different, like the extender quality? 2 HDD’s works just fine with extenders, in the same USB 3.0 card or via two seperate ones.
thanks in advance,
