1) choose any folder on my Windows laptop
2) connect my laptop to the other computer with a USB male A to male A cable
3) the second computer sees the selected folder on the Windows laptop as if it were a USB flash drive
Any suggestions welcome, if this can't be done strictly in software and there's hardware device that will accomplish the same thing. The main requirement is that the second computer should not need any software/driver installed and should see what is presented as a USB flash drive.
