I have an internal front panel USB cable that needs to be extended 12" to the rear of the motherboard to connect to the USB pin header. I need help from expert computer technician, or electronics engineers.

How can I splice the USB cable so that it will actually support the end device?

I want to extend the USB 12". If you have tried to do this and have been successful, I want to know what procedure you used. For raw materials I have a length of USB cable, 4 core 22 AWG stranded wire, 24 stranded AWG copper, and 26 AWG stranded copper. I'll try any method that you have used and know works.

If you have multiple cables you can link them together by getting little male-to-male connectors (a friend gave me a bunch of these and I use them to make header extention cables) and linking the cables. Radioshack might have these.
