Wasn't sure which forum to put this on. It is networking, sort of. Anyway, . . .
I have just bought a netbook, and now want to transfer data to and from my PC. This will happen on a regular basis, and I don't want to use a USB memory stick for this. I want to be able to connect directly, and pick up files and transfer in either direction using USB. Can I do this ? Can I make my own USB crossover cable, or are they something special. There are only 4 wires. I was thinking of disconnecting the two power wires, then crossing over the two data wires (green and white). Will this work ? Anyone done this ? Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
