Copying files from one computer to another.

I have a Desktop computer with WXP as OS and it has 2 USB ports. I would like to copy everything from the hard drive of this computer to the Laptop hard drive.
I wonder if there is a USB to USB cable that can connect both computers, and will enable me to copy the content of the desktop hard drive to the laptop hard drive.


Thanks

Please pay good attention to what they say about the kind of USB-USB cable you should buy: a bridged one, not an A/A one.
