There are "laplink" cables for USB. They have two type A connectors and a 
piece of hardware between them, which acts as a USB network card to both 
ends. So you plug it in and get a new network interface (e.g. usb0).

The rest is identical a normal network card - set IPs or let avahi-autoipd 
do the job and share your files over network.

I seriously doubt there is a hardware and a driver which would do what you 
want. It would have to emulate a hard drive hardware and a file system 
whithin for your directory structure, not to mention the hardware part. 
I've never heard of something like this.
