      This is a cable with 2 Type A connectors (the common large flat connector). You plug one end into one computer, the other end into another computer. There is a processor and some flash memory in the cable itself, so when you plug it in, it launches a non-install application (that is, it runs from the cable and does NOT install anything on your computers). The application shows a split window, with a File Explorer-like interface in the top and bottom. Top shows one computer, bottom shows the other. Drag and drop stuff back and forth between the computers. Simple! Easy! Fast! And a LOT less hassle than going back and forth with a USB Flash Drive (especially if you have a Large quantity of data to transfer, or if you are updating and moving files a lot.) I use this at client sites - many clients don't want non-company computers plugged into their networks, and even when they permit it, then establishing a connection to another computer (as opposed to simply getting to the internet) is a problem. This cable makes moving projects from my work computer to client system a snap! Great device! Goes in my computer bag as a permanent addition! Directions say it works PC-PC, PC-MAC and MAC-MAC. I have only used it PC-PC so far, so I can't vouch for the other arrangements, but I have no reason to think they would not work just as well.

      I bought this cable to transfer my files and settings to my new computer. The set-up was easy and within a couple of minutes I was looking at all the folders on both computers. All the info I read including the brief instructions, said the transfer would be automatic! It would transfer all files, list programs to reinstall, and provide links to other internet programs I had installed on my old computer. Great! But all I saw was every folder I had on both computers. And it stopped. After much searching, and climbing the chain of Microsoft support personell, and a subsequent link to yet another website, I found in the fine print at the back of the FAQ's that if you are transferring fron a 32 bit system (windows XP) to a 64 bit system (my new windows 7), the auto transfer won't work, and you will have to manually select which files to move, and hunt for what ever programs you want to reinstall - the 64 bit version of course! It would have been a lot less frustrating if I had known that up front, say an FYI on the product packaging or at least in the instruction FAQs. The manual transfer worked fine.

      This is not a basic transfer cable, be aware that it has built-in software that precludes it being used in a conventional manner. Also be aware that the built in software may or may not work on your Windows 10 computer. Out of 5 I tried it on the application repeatedly crashed on 3 and worked on 2. Unfortunately the 2 it worked on are not the ones that I need to transfer data between so it was a complete fail. Better yet, the software on those 2 computers did not recognize a connection so oops, even if they had been the right ones it would not have worked. Only buy it if you have time to try and return if it fails. Do not buy it if you just need a basic cable as it only works with its own software as far as I can tell.

      My husband bought this to charge his portable charger. He wanted something longer than the mini cord that came with the portable charger. We attached the USB to the charger then attached the USB on the other end into a plug. Plugged it all into an outlet. No charge. We attached it to power up from my computer as I do for my iPhone at times. No charge. We hoped it was the cable and not the new portable power charger. My husband pulled out the mini cord that came with the portable charger and it worked fine. Must be the cable. I asked for the packaging so I could return it for him. I read the box. The cable was NOT FOR CHARGING!! The cable is for fast efficient movement of information from one device to another. The double USB cable is not defective. The moral of the story is to be sure you know that you're buying. Read!!

      I recently upgraded to a new desktop tower. The old tower was still working, but I needed to move up to a faster computer with more memory. Once the new machine was set up, I plugged in the transfer cable to both computers and was transferring files within minutes. The cable comes with built-in software that displays both computers on one screen. You just select what files you want to transfer, select where you want to put them on the new machine, then transfer. You can even click and drag if you like doing it that way. I didn't want to transfer all the files and this cable, with its software, made it easy to select only what I wanted on the new computer (the old computer will still be used, but in a lesser role). This cable worked great for my needs.

      Have you ever tried using those Seagate or Western Digital mini hard disk drive that you have on your MacBook and connecting it to Windows 10 PC? I tried 2 of them & I thought for a moment they both died. W10 can’t even detect a hdd was plugged in. I learned later that Macs can read hdd intended for windows but not the other way around. This Insignia Transfer cable solves this problem & it automatically loads it’s own program to both machines. No need to download anything just plug and play. Now, you can transfer files, photos, documents etc between a PC & Mac and vice Versa. What a life saver!

      Bought this cable to transfer data from XP Professional to Windows 10. Software loaded fine. Drag and dropped worked. I just kept getting errors if I tried to drag and drop more than 50-60MB of data. Less than that worked well. But the whole reason to get this cable is to move large amounts of data at once. Insignia tech was useless. Maybe the problem was because the XP had USB 2.0 and the Windows 10 had USB 3.0 ports and XP couldn't keep up. Either way, this cable was useless for what I wanted. Oh, and Best Buy's ridiculous 14 day return policy meant I'm stuck with it. It makes a unique leash for walking my dog though.

      There was nothing wrong with the product itself

      When I told the Best Buy *employee* that I needed to transfer pictures to and from a digital photo frame, this is the product he showed me. However, I was completely unable to use this, because this product is specifically designed to transfer files *between two computers*. I could do nothing with this device and my digital photo frame. A little product knowledge or technical knowledge on the part of the Best Buy employee would have saved me some time and frustration. I assumed Best Buy would have a simple USB cable. I did not bother to try and exchange the device but simply returned it. Maybe I will have better luck elsewhere.
