Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
Compaq V2000 w XP and new Compaq 6910 w Vista. Data transfer problems. I have a Dynex Easy transfer cable. One end is a flash drive w the software. New Vista downloaded it, old XP refused.
For XP I downloaded a plug-in from MS.com. It will not install
the plug-in. No matter what I try, the 2 puters wont see each other.
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
