Best USB for Berkeley USB Converter

I have acquired the famed Converter and am trying to enjoy.  a difficult time finding an USB for it.   However, the converter isn't recognizing some of my better USB cables.

Which USB cable are you using with your Converter?  Is there a way to get the converter to "recognize" my USB cable?

Make sure your cables are usb 2 or 3 rated. Plug it into a usb 2 port on your computer and remove anything else that's plugged into usb2 ports. Use usb 3 ports for all other usb devices.

Check to make sure your drivers and firmware are current.

Sometimes usb devices don't connect properly if you make any changes. Install a problem cable and reboot your computer and converter.
