Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless. I bought this to connect my Surface (which has only 1 USB port) to a USB hub. I wasn't bothered about the file transfer - I bought it as it was the only male to male in the Maplin shop. I could not get the USB hub working with this - I tried everything (I work in IT so I know what I'm doing). Looks like the file transfer capability interferes with the Surface detecting the hub.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and reliable Worked well for transferring files between two Windows 7 PCs, saved using a memory stick. Would have been ideal if you could drag and drop files onto the app to transfer them, or mount the remote PC as a drive in My Computer. But the supplied software was simple and reliable.

I used this on windows 7 PCs and it worked well but I have not managed to get it to work on Windows 10. The software starts and then crashes immediately, do you know if I can update the software to make it work with Windows 10?
