The StarTech USB2HABM3RA cable has the necessary connectors, though
it's 3 feet long. I bought one from NewEgg, but they are currently
out of stock.
- What version of the DR-135 do you have? And can you send a picture?
You do have to angle the board a bit, but I haven't had a problem with it.
I remember doing a new board layout that was about 1/3 smaller and had
the USB connector on the side, but I can't remember what happened to it
- I think I had some prototypes produced, but it's been a while. I'll
have to check into that.
