I have attempted to extend the USB cable for the low-light USB camera, but without success. I can extend the power wires (black and red), but when I extend the white and green control cables, I no longer have contact with the camera on my computer. The cable I have tried extending the USB camera cable with is a standard USB cable (2m) and a 15cm cable with the same thickness as the USB cable, but none seem to do the trick. The cables should not be broken, as I’ve tested with a voltmeter to verify that signals can indeed be transferred on the wires. Does anyone know why this does not work? Do I need some special cable for this, or is it simply not possible to extend the cable length for this camera?
Some additional info: My computer is an Ubuntu 16.04 (Kernel 4.15.0-30-generic).
