Yup, you can connect to computers using USB. But it has to be a special networking USB cable. Never connect a regular USB cable between two computers, the result may be one or two fried Motherboards.

You will need a cable such as this: USB 2.0 Network Cable

Using that cable I showed you is the only way you can do it using the USB connection. Other than that, you can use an ethernet cable, but you'll still have to set up a simple network between the two computers so they can share files.

If it's too much hassle for you to set up a simple network, then you can always burn your data to cd/dvd and transfer it that way. I like this option because it gives you a permanent backup of your data. Could be a hassle if you have like 40-50gb of data to transfer, but if you have like 5 dvd's worth or less it's a good idea.
