    6ft USB 2.0 Data Transfer Cable

    So you've got a large amount of data that you want to move from a Mac® to a PC (or between two Macs or two PCs). You could connect them to the same network, configure them for file sharing, and copy the files across the network OR you can just plug this Data Transfer Cable into a USB port on each machine and drag & drop the files from one machine to the other!

    This Data Transfer Cable provides the easiest and simplest solution for your file transfer needs, whether it be between a Mac and PC, between two Macs, or between two PCs. When the cable is plugged into a Mac or Windows PC it will automatically install the necessary drivers and software needed to connect the two computers.

    The end of the cable with the large connector is inserted into the USB port of the host computer and the other end is connected to the remote computer. The host can then see the remote as it would any USB drive or hub with multiple drives. Transferring files is as simple as copying and pasting, or dragging and dropping, using Windows Explorer or Mac OSX Finder.

    This 6 foot cable has a USB A male connector on each end and comes with a ferrite core to suppress any high-frequency noise or interference.

    Works when it wants to

    Pros: When it works it transfers quickly

    Cons: Doesn't work a lot of the time
    Could be a better interface but I've seen worse

    About 75% of the time it doesn't work. I tried transferring a video file earlier today and I got a message stating "Can't transfer...Unknown error". I either get errors or find out that some of the files didn't even transfer when it said they did. For anyone who wants to transfer a folder, make sure you check that all the files transferred! It's a real shame that it doesn't work that good.

    The data transfer cable that didn't transfer.

    Pros: Inexpensive

    Cons: doesn't come with any tutorial or instructions. Couldn't find a video to explain it..

    nothing but problems. First off it didn't come with any instructions, which computer is the host and which is remote. Which end goes to which computer. After a lot of playing around I managed to find the get the two computers up on the screens. Now what??? Again there wasn't a directory explaining how transfer the information. Isn't there a way to transfer all the files without clicking and dragging. By the way, I tried clicking and dragging with one file and that didn't work. I'm not a computer wiz but I'm not stupid either. If you can help me that would be great, if not, then I'll have to get someone in to do it for me. I thought that this would be quick and easy but it has just been a major headache.

    Data Transfer Calbe

    Pros: Worked great for me.

    Cons: Had no cons.

    This cable made transferring data from one PC to another SO much easier and faster. It installed software on both units so that I was able to temporarily move the information, reset the unit that had a problem, then move the saved data back afterwards.

    Works great but not on windows Surface

    Pros: Works perfectly on the Desktop PC transferring files from the old PC.

    Cons: Would have been nice if it would work on the Surface, I could have used it a lot more often. I guess it is not meant to work on Windows 8 RT.
    So if anyone is looking to use this on a Windows Surface, the software will not work on Windows RT

    Extremely easy to set up and run, got the job done on the desktop PC. Was really hoping it would work with the Surface.
    Would be 10/10 if it had worked on the Surface.
