Not sure what a "simple cores cable" is but there are ways to do this. It depends on what OS you are using. Different cables are required for different methods.

If Win XP or before: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_cable_connection

for Vista/7: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Easy_Transfer

for unix/linux/mac: I don't have experience doing this on those OSs but there are probably ways.

Since these require special cables it may be easier and/or cheaper to get a thumb drive or external hard drive to do this with. A simple hub and basic cat 5/5e/6 cable can be used also.
