A friend of mine needs to transfer the contents of a hard drive on an old PC to a portable HDD. He isnt very technically minded, and lives miles from me, otherwise I would slave the hdd and do it that way. He does own a portable HDD, but obviously this has a usb lead which is not compatible with the old PC, since it doesnt have a usb connector. Is there a straightforward way of connecting the two, say with a serial to usb connector, or similar? Any advice would be more than welcome! Cheers!
