I have an internal front panel USB cable that need 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 copper. I'll try any method that you know works.

Just to add what he said. Don't go splicing USB cables. You are likely to ruin anything that you hook up to it.

My thoughts too were to buy an extension.
However, I am confused as to your request. Are you talking about extending something inside your computer?
