With cables only?
1. Create a two computer network with a "crossover" network cable. (Not a regular network patch cable or straight-through cable.)
2. Create a network with a router. (That's two network cables and a router.)
3. USB data transfer cable (Not a regular USB cable).
I prefer #2 for versatility and faster speeds than USB.
You could just burn the files to CD/DVD. This will also serve as a backup of those important files.
I had some problems with my laptop and then i bought an external hard drve so that i could restore it. then i copied all this stuff into another laptop and got rid of the external hard drive.......now that my laptop is back in action after restoring ........is there a way out that i can transfer data just through cables from the other laptop to mine without using an external hard drive????
Please help me ........your help would be greatly appreciated.
