    try it. you'll definitely fry your usb ports.

    male2male cables should really just be sold to people who know what they are doing.

    Even if you managed to connect the two, both of them would be operating in Host Mode. For this to work, the computer would have to run some sort of software that mimics the USB drive (Device Mode).
