Hello,

What Operating System version are you running in the old and in the new computer?

If you are running Windows XP, then you can use the "Transfer my files and settings" built in feature.

You can learn more in:

Hope it helps.

Best regards,
Eduardo

I want to transfer all my word perfect files from my 2000 computer to my laptop, however, i dont have a clue as to how to begin. HELP!DIAN


there are a bunch of ways you can get this done ... depending on your computers ...
Does your computer from 2000 hook up to the internet? If so, you can e-mail yourself the files through whatever e-mail program you have. You can "attach" the files to an e-mail and download them that way. Depending on the number and size of the files, you could also copy and paste the text into e-mails ... but this would require you to copy and paste them back into documents on your laptop when you are done. You could also use a file backup service, uploading your documents there and then downloading them onto your laptop.
If you cannot hook your old computer up to the internet, then you still have some options. Do you have a CD writer on your old computer? If so, you can write all of your documents to a CD and then use that to put them onto your laptop (if your laptop has a CD drive). This would also give you a permanent backup for your files .. which is always nice. If your laptop does not have a CD drive, then you can take the CD to a local library and upload them to the internet and download them to your laptop that way. Just let the person at the information desk at the library know that this is what you are doing so they don't think you are uploading viruses or something (a lot of librarians get nervous when they see someone uploading a lot of stuff to the internet and it is easier to let them know up front than trying to defend yourself later -- I have faced this issue before ... ha ha ha)
If you don't have a CD drive on your old computer ... does it have a floppy drive? If so, you can do the same as with a CD, but using floppy disks -- newer laptops don't usually have floppy drives, so you would likely have to go to a library to upload them to the internet and download them to the laptop.
If you have a USB jack on your old computer, you can also use a USB flash drive to transfer the files -- just upload them to the USB drive, then hook the drive up to your laptop and download them. If you don't have a USB drive, you can get one for very little money (you won't need a lot of storage for word documents -- a 1 GB flash drive will be MORE than enough no matter how many documents you have)
There are other ways to get this done, but you will likely be able to use one of the above procedures to help you out. If not, please leave a comment and I'll do what I can -- please include some more information with your comment: 1. What OS do you use on each computer (Windows, Linux, Mac, Unix), 2. What drives does each computer have (CD-R, floppy drive, etc.), 3. Do you have a home network that is hooked up to both computers?

If you have found the drivers needed, put the cd into the computer and drag/copy them into your documents folder/desktop or wherever you want .
Run the drivers from there. NOT straight off the CD.
Alternatively... Copy them onto a USB pen drive

Plug into PC via USB cable.

Inside will be a folder called DCIM, open it.
Inside is a folder called something like 101PANA (mabye more than one)
If multiple folders, hold CTRL key and click on each one to highlight.
Right click on one of them, and select Copy.

You can now paste them to "My Pictures" inside My Documents.
And/or you can burn them to CD by:
Putting a blank CD-R into the CD writer,
Opening "My Computer", right click on the CD drive, select paste.
Windows will prompt you to burn them to disc (popup bottom taskbar, next to clock)
Cheers.

How can i download driver for maian Asus P5GL-MX


That's an easy one. Go to the AsusTek support pages.
The link takes you to the downloads for your board. Download and save them. I usually burn them to a CD or copy onto a flash drive. CD will always work but sometimes the flash drive is recognized by the new computer you are setting up.

Cd/dvd burning drive ''e'' does not identify an empty disk for burn


When your computer is in POST have you tried entering your CMOS to check that your system is actually recognizing that the drive is physical? If not try that and then check to make sure that the jumpers on the drives are set properly and then reinstall your software and this should correct your problem. Good Luck

NEC 3540A stopped reading blank DVD+DL


Hi JonPM
Burning a dual layer disk requires a functionality of the drive that is not used in the burning of normal disks. But before we consider that the drive may have a mechanical problem, lets clean out all your temporary garbage. Click on this link and download Cleanup 4.5.2 (http://majorgeeks.com/CleanUp_d4895.html

Instal and run the program. Once it has finished, reboot your computer and give burning onto the DL disk another try. Let me know what happens.

If your Computer has a removable drive, power it down (Off) and remove the drive, also check all the connecters. If it is internal you will need to open the case and unplug carefully and replug the Drive and repower the Computer and check the system for the Burner.

GSA-2166D recognized by computer but does not recogniz media?


Try removing the device from device manager, then reboot. Windows should then re-detect the device and re-install the drivers for it. If that doesn't work, try the device on another computer. If it still doesn't work, it's probably defective.
