Re: I want to get data from an older machine
The way I do it is: purchase a USB hard drive enclosure (about $29.99) . Install your old hard drive in it,obtain your old data. Afterwards you can use the old hard drive as a backup device. This would work well for your laptop. You can save your pictures,video and songs on the external hard drive.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe

Make sure you're plugging the USB cable from the machine intoa USB port in the BACK of your computer, not one of the front ports or a porton a USB hub. The cable and machine need more power than most of those portsprovide, a technical detail that Singer doesn't realize. If you're using a laptop, keep trying different USB ports until you find one that works. Good luck!
Just happen to be sitting in front a Bernina 180 at this very moment - with the connecting cable attached to a Keyspan USA-19HS Adapter. It is a current adapter available from either Keyspan (www.keyspan.com) or any number of computer retailers - physical or online. Seems to run around $30.00 just about everywhere. Auction sites may have bargain. Worked like a charm on an older XP computer as I was able to test the older software I had due to it having the necessary parallel port the the older dongle. While I am fairly certain this combination would also work on my Windows 7 computer, I am unable to test it as I have not come across a parallel adapter that will work with the older software parallel dongle. I've had other programs/peripherals that utilize usb to serial adapter (on my Windows 7) that have worked fine, so I suspect this would also be the case.
Hope this helps. If you have specific questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Please note that your cable will support below givne O/S check at your end.
One destination PC running Windows 7 (32- or 64-bit) and available USB port
One source PC running Windows® XP (32- or 64-bit) or Windows Vista® (32- or 64-bit) and available USB port
For Example two Pcs 1 is Xp and other pcs is Windows 7, then try to connect between both .
Another one more option is there for transfering the data between two systems either laptop or Desktop by a cross cable (LAN CABLE), buy a cross cable from shop and insert into RJ45 Socket (i.e lan socket) the try to transfer the datas.

what do use to transfer? usb stick or network connection?or cd/dvd-r? what os does your old machine have?
if both machines have valid and functioning OS(winxx) and both have usb 2.0 port, and you are transferring just back-up of personal data (doc's, mp3's, save-games etc., use) that amount up to less than 1 GB, try using usb-stick or empty mp3-player for file swapping.
else burn the files from old machine using the hopefully available cd/dvd-burner in it and transfer to newer.
for easily transferring the whole content of old harddisk unaltered, set up asmall win-home-network using dsl/lan-cable plus crossover adaptor (wire up both machines to one-another) and stream old harddisk content to new machine
is it laptop to laptop-transfer and you are somewhat familiar with hardware?
remove harddisk from older and put into new one!
by the way: if you can have win xp pro installed on newer machine for same or less price of win vista, try to get it(you do need a bit computer expertise - but we all like learning -don't we?
good luck, if not satisfied or too much options for one time, just comeback to me!
I have a Western digital model wd2500b007-rnn and I cannot get either my PC or my laptop to recognize the drive. I isolated the drive to another computer with the same error. It says USB device not reognized. I also tried a different port. I have not tried different cables. Can I retrieve the old data on the drive?
Did you find a resolution for this? I am having the same problem. None of my PCs can recognize the drive. Formatting seems to be the only choice but I need to recover my old data first.
What drive are you speaking about.
PCs and Macs (assuming you are speaking about a PPC architecture machine-- older-- not the newer dual core Intel processor machines capable of running Windows) run on different code due to the different fundamental architecture of their respective central processing units (CPU's). PC software will not run on Macs and vice versa. Exceptions to this rule would be software written using a platform independent language such as Java (open office is an example of such software).
That said, you can transfer any data that you have on your PC to the drive on your Mac. Unless you have an Intel dual core chip, however, or the software is written in Java or the like, it will not run on your Mac. It will just sit there, nicely stored, waiting for you to transfer it to a machine that can understand it.
