  1. Hi all, thanks fro reading.
    I have 2 pc's both running windows 7 ultimate 64bit and i want to connect them via a usb cable but i have read that it needs to be a special data one with a microchip in the middle of it.
    All the ones i can see on the net all mention working with certain OS's except W7 so please can anyone direct me to a usb male to male data cable that is compatible with my OS cos i am out or ideas for looking.

    Thanks for any help, much appreciated.


    P.S. would be nice if its a UK based retailer as its where i live, but if needs must lol
