USB Bridge Cables

USB was designed as a PC-to-peripheral communication mechanism.  Because of this design, it is not possible to plug a passive cable between the USB ports of two computers and transfer information.  In fact, doing so could damage the USB ports of your computer.  What is required is a special cable with a chip and active electronics in the middle of the cable.
This type of cable is known as an "
USB bridge cable".  The chip in the middle of the cable acts as a peripheral to both computers, and allows for peer-to-peer communication between the computers.
The USB bridge cables are used to transfer files quickly and safely between two computers via their USB ports.  Transfer rates of up to 900,000 bytes per second can be achieved, which is 9 times faster than typical parallel transfer rates and 45 times faster than typical serial transfer rates.

You can extend the distance of your USB bridge cable by purchasing USB Active Extension Cables (sometimes called a
USB repeater cable). The USB Extension Cable can also be used to extend USB device cables, which are used for connecting peripheral devices such as printers or scanners to your computer.

USB device cables cannot be used for file transfer between computers.

USB bridge controllers - USB On-the-Go chip enables portable devices to transfer data directly to another peripheral device without first having to connect to a PC.
