Windows 7: USB Cable Question

USB Cable Question

This week I went down to my local PC supply store to pickup a USB Cable. When I got home with it I realized it had a male connection on both ends, not what I wanted. I got to thinking about what it could be used for and could not come up with a situation where I could use it for anything. What could this be used for?

An extension when having a male to female converter or adapter at one end. Generally when picking up any extra cable you want to know what is used for like a printer that also see a male plug at each end but one is smaller in size. The same is seen for usb cables for use with cell phones, digital cameras, and other hand held devices to connect to pc.

I wouldn't recommend doing much charging of devices like cell phones by usb however especially when having a hub in use. It seems the phones will pull a bit more where the ac charging adapter can handle the extra draw seen at times.

Sata Cable Question
I am going to buy some Sata Data Cables. The ad I saw said "Straight to 90 degree left". I had not thought about the direction in the past. I held up a cable and I guess it depends which way you are holding it as to if it is left or right. What is the normal cable, left or right?

SATA Data Cable Question
I just got some new SATA data cables. They have the lock on them which my old ones didn't. I put them on and I could still grab the sides of the cable and pull them off the drive. Should they lock and not come off unless I loosen the lock? Thanks, Coboc Model SC-SATA3-10-LL-BL-90 -
