which usb cords to use ?

I want to transfer about 300 pictures to My Ladys laptop.. but, I'm not wanting to go the e-mail route. There HAS to be a way to connect our computers via USB plugs, but... How ? male/male plugs, or male/female ? which type will work ?

Males fit into females.

But I expect you knew that.

The USB plugs on my machine are female.

Which would indicate a cable with 2 male protrusions.

But I have no idea if that would work. I'd think so if it is simply a matter of cable matching. Look at your inputs (pardon the expression) and get the opposite cable.

USB to HDMI cords: is there such a thing?
I was trying to connect my laptop to my HDtv but I realized that my laptop doesn't have an hdmi port (which was irritating), so I was wondering if a normal usb cord would suffice, or if there was a usb-hdmi cord? sorry if this seems very basic... :o thanks in advance!
