An easier way, if you have a burner, is to transfer them that way. Any cable connection would require a network setup. If your older PC has a network interface card, this is very simple. You did not mention the OS of your two computers and it would be necessary to know in order to give specific instruction or provide pertinent links.
Just bought a new notebook computer and am trying to transfer files from the old desktop to the new lappy. I saw in the start menu for the new lappy there is a "files and settings transfer wizard" It only seems to operate through a serial cable though. I have about 25GB of music files to transfer as well as pictures, etc. Will I be waiting forever if I try this through the wizard using serial ? I also have a USB cable and was wondering if I plugged that into both sides if I would be able to just copy - paste certain files as I go along. Not sure if I would have to set up a network to do that or not. Any help would be much appreciated.
I have a USB cable, but t
