2. While you may read about moving the hard disk, remember that this is not without risk.
3. You've revealed you never did have a backup. What was the plan when the hard disk stopped spinning or the machine vanished? I hope today's plan works better!
I have recently assembled a new computer and I need to get my music off of my old comp. I found out that you can use a serial link cable to connect two computers. But the only problem is that I only have one mouse, monitor and the old comp. no longer has a cd rom or a floppy drive. I was wondering if I could plug the old comp. in link them together and draw the music off of the other hard drive.
If you cannot do this or you know how to do this or you have a simpler solution, please email me at
