Can I make a USB port on my Linux computer look like a mass storage device?

I’m running Kubuntu 12.04 on my PC. I want to make one USB port on my computer appear as if it is a USB mass storage device to other devices. In other words, something connected to this USB port will think my whole PC is just an external HDD or a media player or some other USB mass storage device. Is this possible? If so, how would I do it?

Here is Solutions:

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.

Solution 1

You really can’t unless you have a special USB chip that is able to switch from being USB host to USB guest. While such chips are often present in mobile devices, on a workstation it generally doesn’t make much sense (and so it isn’t there).

I have a hunch that you might be asking a wrong question though.

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
