Most Microsoft applications take poorly to attempts to transfer them from one system to another. (PC Mover and such products) Generally, you need to backup you data files, then re-install the MS product on the new system from the Microsoft Media. Once installed, then you activate it and that may involve a call to MS to explain the change in hardware.

How do you transfer settings and files to a new PC?


Hi Anita,

First and foremost, you should perform a COMPLETE back up of your computer's drive(s) to either CDs, DVDs, Thumb drive(s) or other external drive(s).

Only after you have done this, should you proceed. Microsoft offers an "Easy Transfer Wizard" but there are limitations of what it can do. The most significant of which is the INABILITY to move applications that were previously installed on the Windows XP machine. There is no program I know of that will move installed applications to a new computer and new OS. What it WILL do is move the DATA that was created by these programs; leaving you to reinstall the applications manually again in your new Windows 8 machine. It also moves your photos, music etc - but no applications.

You should download a version of the Wizard that is specific to the OS of your old machine - WinXP (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7349).

Here's a link that details the process: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/transfer-data-from-old-computer-to-windows-8

I hope this helps and good luck!

Files and settings transfer


What sort of problems are you encountering ?

Since newer versions of hardware, computers and operating systems like Microsoft Windows frequently hit the market, most of us are tempted to upgrade our computers. While upgrading your computer or new version of Microsoft Windows, you may find it a hassle to move all the files and settings to the new computer. Transferring files, user settings and applications to a new computer takes days if done manually. There are, however, a few ways of transferring files and settings successfully.

Windows Easy Transfer Wizard Transferring files between computers or operating systems is a long process and some files may not be fully transferred if you lack technical expertise. Windows Easy Transfer Wizard helps simplify the process for transferring files to new computers. It is a built-in migration tool within Windows. This tool provides an interface for such migration and does so with a comprehensive wizard that takes you on a guided tour of the process. It can be accessed by clicking on the "Start" menu, then "Accessories," then "System Tools" and then "Windows Easy Transfer." All files transferred will be restored in a similar way as they were on your old computer. This method is only useful for solving problems with transferring files, not settings. b> Laplink PCMOVER b> The migration of settings can be more of a problem than that of transferring files. Settings like registry values, user preferences or activation keys are difficult to move without a transfer tool. Laplink's PCMOVER is a tool used for the transfer of files and settings from PC to PC. This software application has a comprehensive wizard that allows you to transfer user settings, personal files and programs with settings. It can be used with any Microsoft Windows-based computer and you can also use it while transferring between operating systems. A PCMOVER will create a backup-type image file that can then be moved by a CD/DVD or USB flash drive. It provides a fast and efficient file and settings transfer. b> Other Transfer Methods b> There are other ways to transfer Windows files and settings to avoid leaving data behind, as well. One is by the means of an Easy Transfer Cable, which is a USB-to-USB bridge cable that connects two computers together. You can also use a USB flash drive, an external hard disk drive or a CD/DVD for transferring files and settings -- though all these means are time consuming. Most users also use a wireless network for migrating files and settings. Software applications are preferred over all these methods, however, because they are cost-effective and they take less time in transferring. b> Solutions for other Transfer Problems b> While transferring files and settings with the help of software applications, other problems may arise. There are solutions for these problems as well. One of the problems commonly faced by users is that some settings may not be transferred. To prevent this problem, you must install that program before you run the Windows Easy Transfer. Another problem faced is some files transferred are unreadable on the new computer. This occurs when a program for that file type has not been installed in the new computer yet. At times, users may see files or settings not being transferred at all. This will occur only when the files are not compatible with that version of Windows. Hope this helps.

When i bought the unit I had a desktop running on Windows XP. Now I have Woindows 7. How can get a software upgrade to be able to download my data?


Did you upgrade from Xp to Vista first ?

First, you will want to BACKUP ALL of your programs.

Since you did not upgrade to VISTA, you will LOOSE all of your programs when you upgrade to Windows 7, so be sure to backup all of your programs and files.


If you wish, you can use an external hard drive and a program called WINDOWS EASY TRANSFER to make this task easier.


See the link below for this FREE program.


http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2b6f1631-973a-45c7-a4ec-4928fa173266&DisplayLang=en


Now, for the fun part! Insert the Windows 7 disc into the computer and start or restart the computer.


Follow the onscreen instructions to completely install Windows 7.


You will now need to reinstall each of your programs.


If you used Windows Easy Transfer, you can use the list of programs that it prints out to be certain that you reinstall all of your programs.


Hope this helps.

I'm unable to send to, or receive from, my PC files.


Kermit is a protocol designed to allow two computers to communicate with each other.

The HP 50g is not compatible with Microsoft Word. You can write programs on the 50g, transfer them to the computer, and transfer them back, but you cannot edit them in Word.

There are other PC program that will let you write and edit 50g programs. There are also many communication programs. Take a look here.

You may want to consider getting an SD card (and if necessary, a card reader for your computer). It's a lot easier and faster to transfer data and programs using the SD card than the wired connection.

I am trying to use Microsoft 2010 program and I am transferring it to my desktop but my program is using Microsoft 2003 on the desktop. How do I transfer the 2010 program on my desktop that has Microsoft...


its a little hard to grasp your issue, but i think you mean you have made files using office 2010 on a different machine, that will not open on your older machine. They are now on your deskop computer which only has office 2003. If im correct on your problem, The solution is to go on your desktop computer. Use the web to download / install "Microsoft office compatibility pack" from here. this will let you use your old version to open files from the new version. Hope that helps!

Would like to download moives and music on dmp what d i need t do using a public cumpter


This may be hard to do if you do not have permission to change the computers settings. The Sony uses what is called MTP mode to load files. Sony support has two programs on their site that lets you add files to your player. One program is called Media Manager for Walkman. If using a public use computer they may not let you install a new program on the mach. Using a Sony or an iPod on a public computer may be a bit tricky. they want you to use one computer only to be the main setup for any transfers. Now what does MTP stand for. .MTP stands forMedia Transfer Protocol. It is a Microsoft standard and is Microsoft's solution to connecting MP32_bing.gif players and cameras2_bing.gif to a w*ndow based Computer. MTP mode must be used in order to transfer ANY Digital Rights Management2_bing.gif (DRM) protected content. MP3's downloaded form services like Rhapsody and Napster will only function in this MTP mode. If you use the Sony program you do not have to use W*ndows Media payer. So see if you can install this program on the computer you want to use.
