If both Pc's support the cable and software The cable which I recall was a null modem cable, then yes if your laptop has a serial interface.

    furthyer to your proble. There are cables that adapt from serial interface cable 25 pin or 9 pin to USB In device manager of windows youy can find the USB port and set it to Comm 1 or 2 to act as a direct connection. See Network cable to cable connection in HELP of windows network. If you cant find this let me know your operating system and send me an email admin@nettiser.com.au and I will give you the details and a pic

Trying to transfer data from an old harddrive i have (maxtor, diamondmax plus 9 80 GB ATA / 133 HDD) to My HP laptop


Install the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case the plug this USB hard drive into the USB port in your laptop. The laptop will see it as an external storage device, open the various folders and copy the files to your laptop.
You can delete any unwanted files off this external USB hard disk and use it for backups and file transfer.

Iintend to change my sata hard drive to a SSD hard drive.How do I format before change


When you install Windows on your new SSD hard drive you can then transfer data from your old hard drive using an USB hard drive adapter or install the old hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an USB external hard drive after you have transferred your data to your laptop.
When you connect the USB hard drive adapter to the laptop, the laptop will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the various folders anf files and copy them to your new hard disk.

I got an old laptop and I bought a new toshiba laptop I just wanna ask how do I transfer my application and files from my old laptop to a new one using external hardrive,also wat external hardrive,and also...


Hi,
You can transfer the data files only from the old laptop to the new one. You cannot transfer the installed applications/software. Software are required to installed again on the new laptop afresh.
To transfer the data you can use external portable hard disk, which can be connected to the PC using any USB port (just like pen drive) and you can copy - paste the required data to the external disk just like you copy data from one partition to another. After copying the required data, you can connect the external drive to new laptop and copy the data to the new laptop. You can use external drive of any brand/ capacity. However, it is better to have an external drive with larger capacity, so that you can transfer the data in one go.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Can't transfer my email files from old computer to new computer


Good Day!



To transfer files from an old computer you can use USB or flash drives, copy the files from your Old Computer to Flash drive, after copying---attach the flash drive to your new computer then copy the files and save it. This is the easiest way to transfer files.

Other way of transferring;

-You can also transfer files by Burning your files into a CD/DVD and copy it to your new computer.
-Get your hard disk from the old computer and attached it to your new computer
-Or connect/network your two computers.

I recommend USB or Flash drives, the simplest and easy way.

Hope I was able to help.

I own a very dated Gateway laptop 9600 and I want to transfer data to new laptop. I am attempting to download files to CDs but it is not reading the blank disk and asking me to insert disk. Is it possible...


Yes it is - but first - make sure that you have inserted the right disk (cd for cd burner). However, you only have 800 mb of available space on a cd disk to use, and I don;t know how many files you have or how big they are, so I can't say how many disks you may need. However, if your laptop has a usb port, I would highly recommend using an external hard drive instead. A 500 gb drive (made by Seagate) will run you about $125, and is well worth th investment. Hope this helps!

Need to reinstall origional programs


If you do not have the original disks and each system has usb ports, obtain a usb to usb cable and the old system should appear as an additional hard drive on the new system where you can simply drag and drop content from one system to another.

Do not transfer the system files to your new system, only the program and data files.

I can't advise you on freeware disk imaging software, do a Google search yourself, but I can highly recommend Symantec Norton Ghost.
