Default Re: usb cable question

The rectangle end is a standard 'A' connector and the square end is a standard 'B' connector.

'A' type plugs and 'B' type plugs. So you want a USB 'B' type extension cable.

Edit

Doesn't matter which end you extend. A 'A' or 'B' type extension lead will do.

Actually it does since the usb cable I am looking to extend needs 2 A ends and 1 B end.
