I have a male to male usb cable and when I link my laptop to the pc I cant' see the folders in the respective machines.
USB memory stick pops up with no problem as a removable drive.
Do I need to adjust some settings to get my pc to view the laptop?

This doesnt work. You need a specific specialised USB cable. Just use standard network cables (Cat 5) and set up a network. Doing what you have done can potentially burn your USB ports into not working at all.
