If you open my computer you should see a new drive letter, probably d: or e: with "removable drive" next to it. You double click the icon and then another window should open up with nothing on it. Now you open up another window "my pictures" or wherever your pictures are, and select the ones you want. you can select all of them by clicking edit>>select all on the top toolbar, or pressing the CTRL button while simultaneously clicking the pics you want to drag with your mouse. When you are done, click one of the pics you selected and, holding the left mouse button down, drag the pics to the micro drive. All pics will carry over that you have selected. Hope this helps!

Transfer photos


I've never heard of that. Try copying the picture files to an external drive or a usb flash drive. Then you can put them anywhere you like on another computer requardless of whether it's 32bit or 64 bit.

How to download my file from my old computer


The simplest way to transfer files from your old to your new computer is by using USB flash drives. Just save your files from the old computer onto the flash drive then plug this USB drive in to the new computer and save the files there. If you have large files, you can also use an external hard drive to copy and transfer files.

I want to transfer data from my dial-up desktop, to my new laptop high-speed broadband. How?


Several ways:
1.) 4GB flash drive
2.) External USB drive (320GB or more)
3.) Burn CD or DVD on the desktop and copy to the laptop
4.) Connect them in a local or ad hoc network (not too easy)
I'm sure other expers will have more ideas...

Anyway, at the desktop, run the "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" to gather your desktop info, such as favorites, desktop icons, My Documents, etc:
[Start]
[All Programs]
[Accessories]
[System Tools]
[Files and Transfer Wizard] [Next]
At the desktop, answwer [Old Computer] [Next]
Cintinue to answer the questions
If you have a lot of music or loots of pictures, then just transfer the "Settings Only".

After a successful transfer of the settings, run the wizard again and transfer your "Data Only"

Hope this gets you started.

Transfer all files from my old desktop to new laptop


you can do that by following the steps below;
Instructions
  1. Step 1 Connect your laptop to your desktop through a home network connection. If you have a home network, you can hook up your laptop to it via an Ethernet cable or a wireless network card. Then, you can set a folder on your desktop computer to be shared across the network. To set a folder as shared in Windows, simply right click on it, select "Sharing and security," select the "Share" tab and check the box labeled "Share this folder on the network." You will then be able to access this folder from your laptop and transfer files to your.hard drive.
  2. Step 2 Purchase a USB jump drive. These handy devices are the size of a key but can store five gigabytes of files or even more, depending on the type of USB jump drive you buy. Insert the USB jump drive into your USB port and your operating system should find it as new hardware. If a window doesn't automatically come up, you can find in your drives under "My Computer." Then, you can click and drag files into it, remove the drive and take it to your desktop computer and access the files there.
  3. Step 3 Put your files onto another external storage device, such a CD, floppy disk or external hard drive. Files are transferable between any computers as long as you can store them on something external, then use that external device to move them to the other computer.
  4. Step 4 Email files to yourself. If you only have a few files that you would like to transfer and don't have any of the equipment used in Steps 1 through 3, send yourself an email with the files attached, access your email from the other computer and download the files to your hard drive.

My pentium iii desktop pc has 256 RAM . though it is very slow.copy -paste works very slow in 2gb flash drive.


Maybe your computer is using USB 1.1 that has slower data transfer than USB 2.0, buy a new PCI USB 2.0 controller so you can transfer your files faster

I downloaded onfo. onto My Book from 1 computer with windows xp and want to restore it to my new computer -a gateway with windows vista. I can't get info on how to restore it and the product came with no...


You won't be trying to restore info but transferring it, from how you explained it. I'm not sure about Vista but in XP it's called the file and transfer wizard. Start/ all programs/ accessories/ system tools/ files & transfer wizard. You will actually be physcially connecting the 2 pc's together with a ribbon to your printer ports. I pretty sure this is the right ports but in the wizard it will tell you.
Another way is to use a usb flash drive. At least 1 gig should be plenty of room. Copy from one and attach usb drive to the one your copying to.
You can also get an external hdd. This, to me is the most practical as you can use it to store your back ups.
All of these ways are solutions to your situation. But you must keep in mind that if you try to copy/cut a program from Vista to Xp (or other way around) you have to make sure it doesn't require the entire program to run correctly. Such as MicroSoft Office. You will have to have it on both pc's for your file transfer to work. Understand?
