Arrow USB mini-b to mini-b

There was no good place to put this topic so this is what i decided on.

My question: How would one connect a usb mini-b to a usb mini-b? Males on both ends.
I've heard seen a wire like that, not sure of adapters...
Anyone ever encountered this?

A little confused.

Are you trying to connect two devices together via USB which have female USB Mini B ports? If so, what are these devices?

What are you trying to do?

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

the devices are a camera and a portable mulitmedia storage device (sorta like the epson p-5000 Epson P-5000, Overview - Product Information - Epson America, Inc. . However the storage device that i have doesnt have slots for memory cards so i want to see if this connection is possible.

aside from the connection being may not work.
is the port from the "device" that is like the epson, bi directional? Or is it only for output?

you can buy cable kits with interchangeable ends
