    Has anyone ganged two powered USB cables together with an iMac specifically to communicate with a printer? I'm looking to purchase two cables but wanted to get feedback on any issues people have seen doing this.

    I have two linked together now, but I made sure the printer was in the first USB hub. I also have a Western Digital HD plugged into the second hub, and so far no problems. Not sure about other brands, but who knows.

    Thanks for the reply. What make/model powered USB cables are you using?
