I am in a place where I desperately need a USB 3.0 Micro B cable and can't get one.
Is it possible to use two Micro USB cables to establish a USB 3.0 B connection? The idea is to use one regular Micro USB cable for charging and one for data transfer. As far as I can see, the micro USB 3.0 port on my HDD simply contains two identical Micro USB ports with 5 pins each.
One Micro USB cable fits fine into the Micro USB 3.0 port and does power on the hard drive (I've tried it). Of course, the second Micro USB cable would have to be cut to fit into the port. I plan to connect to two USB ports on my computer. Will this work?
