    old computer was built by ex-husband.

    new computer is a compaq presario sr5605f pc.

    I put the software disc in old computer and downloaded it.

    nothing is getting transferred.

    keep getting same old message that it cannot detect a connection with the new computer. the new computer will not even give me the "connect to old computer" option.

    Im ready to throw it all out on the curb and live without computers before I have a heart attack.

    When I plug in the cable, it is asking for software. However, the Dynex Windows Vista, Easy-Transfer Cable did not come with software. We have a Dell XPS 420 (Windows Vista) and Gateway Tablet-Style Laptop (Windows XP) Thanks! Laura

    The printer is a Lexmark X5650 All-In-One Printer. My OS is Windows XP. I have downloaded the lastest printer drivers from Lexmark, but this did not help. Thanks so much!

    this will have a lot to due with a usb driver that is needed for the cable. its either not installed or a setting is off somewhere. post the make and model numbers of the devices in question and the operating system on the computer and i will be able to help you beyond this.

You only need to install the CD stuff on your Windows XP computer. It installs automatically for Vista when you plug the cable in. This cable only works for transferring from an XP computer to a Vista computer.

Purchased a belkin easy transfer cable. When


One of the most common problems is the computer's operating system not recognizing the cable's drivers. This is most common with non-English operating systems. The quickest solution is to download the most recent driver.
If the Easy Transfer Cable isn't working properly, you can try a few things to fix the problem. Make sure that you have installed the Easy Transfer Cable drivers on your old computer with the CD that is included in the cable package. If you did not do this, close Windows Easy Transfer, insert the CD that came with the Easy Transfer Cable into your old computer, and then follow the instructions on the screen. When this is complete, begin the transfer process again.
USB ports might be another cause of the problem. When Windows Easy Transfer asks you to connect your computers with the Easy Transfer Cable, try plugging the cable into other USB ports on your computers.
A more complex problem involves the F5U409 USB PDA Adapter (The USB/Serial Portable Adapter) not installing properly. If the driver is unzipping, but the unit is not working, you need to manually update the drivers. They should all unzip to a file called F5U109 in the C: drive of your computer. Point to this file through the Device Manager to update.

Hope it helps.

File transfer with Dynex cable


USB transfer cables are quite special and not a regular USB cable.

A better (and cheaper) option is if both have network ports (Ethernet)

Then use a crossover cable. This is usually much much faster than USB and also more reliable.

Enable file and printer sharing on both computers.
Also make sure they both share the same work-group common examples are MSHOME or WORKGROUP

Once that is done you have a few options.

The better option is to use file and settings transfer wizard or similar built into windows. This will step you through the process and allow you to carry over your email and address book plus all your documents.

Another is to use copy and paste to pick the items you want and move them directly to where you want them (his does not work as well as the FST option but is quick just for documents etc.

Dont try to copy programs as they don't transfer well for the most part.

If usb is your only option then be very aware that USB 1.0 to any USBwill be extremly slow and even subject to failure. USB 2.0 to USB 2.0 is the only reccomended usb transfer method

Need help with best connection type for college student in dorm


The enhaced version just give more range of signal over the normal dynex, regarding the internet provider it depends because sometimes you'll need a password and user to connect to the wireless signal. The dynex is used to connect from a cable signal (RJ-45)internet and then it will transfer the connection to wireless so it can be use from any laptop with wireless connection. So for example you DSL internet connection is a cable (RJ-45) then you connect that cable to the dynex router, then the router will automatically transmit the signal to wireless so any nearby pc can connect to it. If the laptop doesn't have wireless, then you'll have to buy a card to be able to connect to wireless signal or you could by also a (RJ-45 straight-through cable Cat 5e) to connect from one of the ports from the DYNEX to the laptop. Hope it helps.
