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!

sincerely yours

Are XP to VISTA transfers doable w/ V 6.2.10.14?


It is not advisable.
Relocator is not 100% guaranteed to even work xp to xp

You are better to use the Vista Easy Transfer utility which operates similar to the XP File and Settings Transfer wizard. That should get your documents email etc.

I have only ever used it a couple of times and was not impressed.
I have also seen quite a few reports of other users having problems too.

That said people do use it and it can work.

I have used the vista transfer tool and been quite impressed even though it can be a little slow on occasion.

Vista cannot discover XP hosts


This happens if Vista retains history of network devices that once existed on your machine, but do not exist anymore.

TRANSFER TO PC


Hook up camera let windows say find new hardware. FOllow the prompts. Acording to Sony Xp has the driver already unless it is a 64 bit. See Below:
  • The drivers needed to connect most Sony® cameras and camcorders to a computer are already included in the Windows Vista and Windows XP operating systems. With these drivers, you should be able to connect and transfer files to a computer.
    Note: If the your camera or camcorder is not recognized by the computer when connected, you may need an updated driver.
  • Detailed Windows Vista compatibility information is available for Sony Cameras and Camcorders.
  • The Windows Vista Starter edition and Windows XP 64-bit operating systems are not supported.

You cant transfer files from your old computer with Win 95 Using windows easy transfer which is a file transfer software in vista . If you want to transfer files then you have to copy them on a cd or dvd then paste them to your new computer . It will take a lot of time . Call a computer expert and tell him that you want to transfer the file from your old computer . He will do that easily .

Please rate me .

Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer


Although Vista comes with an Easy File Transfer Wizard it is not compatible with Windows 98.

You will need a CD burning program such as Nero Burning Suite or Creative CD Writer or here is a link to a FREE one.
