My old computer is a HP Pavilon running Windows XP Home Edition SP2 (32-bit). My new computer is a Dell XPS running Windows Vista Premium Home Edition (32-bit). I wish to transfer quite alot of files from my old computer to my new one (Documents, Games, custom-made art, etc.) There is too much data for my 800MB CD-Rs and I am all out of DVD-R(W)s. My sister has a USB key but it doesn't hold as much as a DVD-RW would (4GB) so it would take many tries to get all the data onto the new computer. I tried the Windows Vista Easy Transfer Wizard. I lack an Easy Transfer Cable, any external media devices or a network; so none of the options were applicable to my situation. I hope someone could outline a way I could accomplish this transfer without having to buy any of these things. My friend gave me a computer "interconnector" (its a cable that I plugged into both PCs ethernet ports) and he said that it would do the job of transferring the information from my old PC to my new one. I'm not sure how he intended me to use this "interconnector". He mentioned "Sharing" or something. If anyone could please explain how to use it I'd be grateful. I googled "Computer Interconnector" and found nothing relevant. I'm not sure if that's the actual name of the cable or what. My harddisk is about to fail in my old pc so I hope I can get a speedy reply. I have quite a lot of data from over the last 5 years on my HP so I hope it doesn't fail on me before I get an answer to this problem. Many thanks in Advance.
