I no longer use the ETHERNET CROSSOVER CABLE as most new machines have AUTO MDX (see google).
Setup and use of Windows Easy Transfer has no involved or "lot of" set up. We plug a cable from the old to the new machine, run Easy Transfer on each machine and enter some 6 digit number and then check off the items we want moved.
What could be easier?
I'm looking to get a new computer soon and I have a lot of files I want to move between my old and new computer (about 60+ GB worth). I was looking into ways to do that and found out about Crossover cables but then found out there's a lot of set up involved (i.e., "You can't just connect two computers and expect them to share files right away."). I'm wondering if the Belkin EasyTransfer cable is better because it does have a plug-and-play aspect to it? Thanks in advance.
