Quick start guide
The USB extension cable may be used if the USB ports of your computer are at the back of the cabinet, but then again, the short length of the cable doesn't make much sense. It is useful though, when you cannot plug the X-Fi Go! due to the adjacent USB port being occupied. You may be wondering as to why there is no software disc included with the bundle, but we'll explain that later in the review.
