If you don't mind the expense, try something like this:
Hi all, my laptop recently went to that great junk yard in the sky! The hard drive on the laptop has got all my photos, music, documents etcc... how do I get all that stuff onto my new laptop?
I don't want to transfer over the whole drive, no need to copy over the old o/s, as the new laptop has that.
I really just want the photos, docs etcc....
the old hard drive is not damaged, any help would be really appreciated, Thanks very much
