Is there anyway to connect a Macbook Air (11-Inch, Late 2010) to a Macbook Pro in target disk mode?

The Macbook Air does not support Thunderbolt and also does not have a FireWire port. It just has two USB ports and a mini display port.

There is no way to use the target disk mode without Thunderbolt or FireWire cable. It wont work on USB or mini display ports.

If the USB port on the Air supports USB 3, you can use two adapters to use Target Disk mode over Gigabit Ethernet (USB->Ethernet and Thunderbolt->Ethernet) - but otherwise, you're out of luck.
