My Cubieboard2 and power supply can do funny things.
Everything works fine, but if I use an USB extender cable, Cubieboard can't power on my SATA HDD. It sound like the hdd tries to spin up, but can't reach the normal state.
It isn't good. Cubieboard's power cable is really short.
I'll try it with another extender cable, but it is possible, that I will need to buy a larger power supply. (I have a 2A one)
