I'm curious as to the length of USB cable that can be used with CCP. I wrote the El Segundo techs in Nikons online KB and received this reply - "CCP will work with the supplied USB cable and we won't speculate on other cables."
If you or anyone else get a longer USB cable to work, I'd like to know.

2. I want to build a cable longer than 5 meters, why won't this work?

A: Even if you violated the spec, it literally wouldn't get you very far. Assuming worst-case delay times, a full speed device at the bottom of 5 hubs and cables has a timeout margin of 280ps. Reducing this margin to 0ps would only give you an extra 5cm, which is hardly worth the trouble.

There are other solutions if you absolutely require it, sing a bridge or two pc's with usb/ethernet adapters-but this is more complicated than most want.
I used 10' extn with std 6'cable and NC4 with no issues.

I use a 15 ft USB extension cable from Fry's Electronics with excellent results.

CCP doesnt come with a cable. so youd use the 6 footer that came with the camera.
