The cable and software provide a complete solution for connecting an older PC (with no USB port) to a new PC (with USB port) in order to transfer files or to synchronize a desktop PC with a laptop PC.


The Keyspan USB Parallel Transfer Cable has an MSRP of $29 and is available to resellers at Ingram Micro, D&H, and Wynit; and to consumers at,CDW, PC Connection and other leading computer products resellers.
