Hey there guys, im going to be brief .... u see im looking for a usb connector to hook up my main monitor of my computer with and old laptop
using this software http://xphelpandsupp...or_software.htm
from wat i know i need a usb connector to connect one outlet to my computer and the other one to my laptop, so ive been looking for one and i just found
one called USB data transfer which is to transfer data from a computer to another one and i was wondering if i could use that one for maxivista software

Hi,

I have to say I hadn't heard of MaxiVista until I read your post - I've only ever dual connected monitors using a hardware option. However, the software seems an interesting option. To answer your question it would appear the software uses a network connection to transfer the required data and so there are several options. The website suggests the best option is a Ethernet cable but if your currently using that for the internet then you'll have no choice but to use another option such as USB. The correct USB cable is important and really the only thing you have to look for is a USB-USB bridged/networking cable. You suggested a transfer cable which is the same thing really. The only thing to look for is a "chip" in the middle of the cable. Basically, any USB cable designed for computer to computer data transfers should be fine. The following website shows the "chip" AKA bridge in the middle of the cable. This is what you should look for - any cable without this bridge is no good. http://www.hardwares...-USB-Cable/248. This article tells you more about connecting two PC's using USB: http://www.brighthub...cles/61866.aspx

Thanks,
