Frank-  If you don't find what you need there, check out

They have every kind of chord and cable imaginable and I have found
their prices very reasonable and customer service is excellent.  You can
also initiate an inline chat with then if you have questions and they
will respond knowledgably.

Finally found what I wanted.....


I purchased a new portable 500-gig Seagate  "GOFlex" drive that has a 
USB 3 connector.  The computer end looks just like USB 2 except little 
three pronged indicator has an "SS" before it which is the symbol for 
USB 3.  But it was the other end which plugs into the drive that I had 
not seen before.  It is a "micro-B" connector.  The problem is the 
length of the cable that came with the drive -- it's only about 10" long

and my new computer has a USB 3 PCIe card.  I didn't have to go around 
to the back of the computer every time I plugged or unplugged the drive 
-- I needed a longer cord.  So far, I've only be able to locate a 3-foot

one in stock anywhere, but that's long enough.
