Default Need Something To Send Data From One PC To Another

I need a cable or some sort to quickly plug one end in to my desktop and the other into my laptop to send data.

Ideally what I need is a external hard drive as im just sending the data that I will put on to my laptop to a new PC.

But I have reached the limit of my spending for the new PC and I dont want to spend £25 on a ExHD (as the cheapest one is).

So will this do the trick?

Thanks.

This is what you need.

Currys PCworld an Currys digital have them for sale at £29.99 although its not listed on the sight due to a ****up on the stock file (I sell around 30 of them a week) you can get them down to around the £25 mark if you up for a little haggling.

no its not male to male jack's will just fry you USB ports. The cable i have posted is different it acts more like a network.

Google USB networking an you will get the idea.

All that you need is an RJ-45 (ethernet) crossover cable . Make a LAN between the two PCs, and then you can quickly and easily transfer the files.

If you need help, post in the networking forum.
