Communication stops because 10m cable is way beyond recommended 5m limit (for USB 2.0 (USB 3.0 recommends 3m cable)). What You should do is use USB hub in the middle of two 5m cables. Or You can look for USB-over-WiFi solutions.

You can use a USB 2.0 extender cable, such as typically used to connect Kinect devices to Xbox consoles.
These are available at Amazon UK, which I presume you can order from in Greece.
