I wasnt sure where else to ask this...
A while ago I bought a USB type A to USB type A cable thinking I could use
it to link to PC's. Its an easy enough thing to assume but fortunately,
before I tried it, I found out that this could fry the sockets at each end.
I reckon this cable should be supplied with a warning.
So I'm left wondering what else could this type of cable could be used for.
Does anyone know?
Re: What purpose is USB type A to USB type A cable intended for?

If it's a Type A Male to Type A Female it can be used as an extension.
If it's double Male, I don't know of a good use for it. However, I know
there were some motherboards that had a USB connection specifically for
connecting 2 computers together. I forget what its designation was, but
it would not work for any other purpose. Apparently the lines were
crossed similar to null modem cable.
