Is it possible to use my USB connection cable from my printer to transfer files between my laptop and deskop? If it is can some one please tell me how to and if it isn't can you tell me what i need to do this.

I have used a USB Crossover cable to transfer data between PC's. Most of the cables you buy come with software as well and arent too expensive. Dicks Smiths etc will have these.

You can use a USB cable for a PC - to - PC connectoin, but I doubt your printer one would work. You would be better off buying a USB crossover cable to do the job.

The USB crossover cables work brilliantly - I even used to use one between my Apple G3 PowerBook and Windows box. The software for both platforms is on the CD. Cheap too.
