Have searched but mostly male to female and very expensive. Should be less than $4 US.

http://www.amazon.com/USB-2-0-Shorty.../dp/B000G82JZK

A bit longer than what you want, but cheaper-

http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2

There is a ton of other places selling A-male to A-male cables, its just a lot harder to find the shorter versions.

If you can get away with shorter-

http://www.dealextreme.com/p/usb-a-m...le-adapter-745

Or you could always make one yourself....

Thanks, both look great. I have dealt with DealExtreme, they take a couple of weeks to deliver but are dependable.

I looked into building them myself but could not find the molded end pieces? I do build cat5 cables.

Thanks again.

No problem, glad to help.

Now thats even harder. I've seen them in a local electronics supply store, and there is a branch that from the US-

http://www.jaycar.us/productView.asp?ID=PP0790

I would be suprised if thats the only place, I imagine that any decent electronics parts stores could get them.

Not as cheap as buying the cables really, but if you want that 'perfect fit' its really the only way to go.
