Follow up question: Aside from the longer cable I have now just lying on the floor and getting in the way, would their be a response time improvement with a shorter cable - say 1.5 feet vs 6 feet?


not that you'll notice

You'd be talking very few nanoseconds.  Here's more than you'll ever want or need to know on the topic: https://bit.ly/38mnIOm  >!

It should be mentioned... (besides the fact that it only takes 2ns for bits to travel the length of 15 feet of USB) that a Nano Second... measured as the distance it takes light to travel... is 8 1/4 inches. In other words the delay involved between 1.5 feet and 6 feet would be roughly the time it takes for light to travel about 1 foot.

Whoops. Sorry man. They are right. You have the mini and the one Brobin suggested would be right.

I forgot I use the RPi 3.

Only because I didn't want my stuff on WiFi. I use the Ethernet port connected to my switch and then placed the RPi inside the rack enclosure. Works great!

That's simular to what I originally had just not a micro end so I needed a adaptor.
For my PI Inside Cm15 I just soldered the Cm15 connections to the Pi test pads. (no external wire hanging off the USB port)

brobin,
That one looks like the one I was using. Micro USB to USB B.
I didn't remember where I got it but you jogged my memory.

My current cable is about 6 feet long.  When I set things up a ear ago I had it in a different location so wanted a longer cable.  Now I only need about a foot.  But I can't recall the specifics on what I need for the connections - is it a USB A to B like this one?

Cable Matters USB 3.0 Cable (USB 3 Cable, USB 3.0 A to B Cable) in Black 3 Feet https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C7RUWCU/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_i_DcYiEb2YW62J3

I used one like this - available in various lengths and straight, left or right angle. No OTG adapter required.

Ok. I will need to do another search on Amazon for one with a micro connection.  Thanks for clarifying.

Here's the link to installing Pi Shrink this image compression utility  https://github.com/Drewsif/PiShrink If you want any further info on this just post back here. You can of course clone your SD while it's running on your Raspberry Pi but that's for another post.
I can varify that this tool/script works, It is what I use to shrink the PiX10Hub image for downloading from A Linux machine.
I've not tested it on a running Pi but given how well it works on Linux it should work fine provided you had enough free space
