You have several ways:

USB Flash Drive: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8281352&st=sandisk+flash+drive&type=product&id=1171672069828

External HDD: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8744727&st=external+hard+drive&lp=3&type=product&cp=1&id=1202648989640

The transfer cable is usually used when you buy a new computer and you just need to transfer a bunch of data from one computer to the next. It comes with simple software to easily transfer your data.

The USB Flash Drive is used when you only have a small amount of data to transfer. A lot of people use it as extra storage if they need to constantly use data from multiple computers or if they always want to have a particualr file handy.

An external Hard Drive is most commonly used for backing up data or when you need to transfer a lot of data but you won't be able to have both of them right next to each other.

And finally, if you don't want to deal with the hassle of any of these solutions, you can take it to a tech center like Best Buy's Geek Squad who can transfer the data for you.

How to transfer photos from camera to desktop


You didn't give the make and model of your camera so this answer assumes it uses a memory card of some type.

The best way to transfer pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Im using another computer not my acer can i still download stuff for my acer


Yes but if you want to use what you download on your Acer then you will need to use such as a USB memory stick to transfer it across, or else copy the downloads to a CD or DVD and transfer in that way.

If your two computers are connected on the same network you may be able to use file sharing to transfer files that way too.

I want to transfer 525 pictures stored on my computer to a memory stick. how do I do this?


Plug the memory stick into the computer and format it. Unplug it then plug it back into the computer, you should have a pop up that asks you what you want to do (open folder view, play and a few other options), you weant to choose Open a Folder View.

You should now have a window open that you can put files into, if not then go to "My Computer" and select it from the available drives.

Now open up the folder with your pictures in it and select all the pictures you want to transfer then press "copy". Go to the memory sticks folder and right click and select "paste" from the right click menu or hit "CTRL+V".

You will get a progress pop up that shows how long the file transfer will take, after it is done...so are you.

If the memory stick is not recognized when plugged in, you way need to load the software that came with the memory stick for its drivers.

How do I transfer files from my old computer to my new computer using the memory stick I bought?


ok my friend its easy

just plug in the memory stick in the old computer and copy/paste files from the old computer to the memory stick (don't forget to look at the size the files might be over sized and the memory stick wont save them).

now after finishing the copy paste from the old computer to the memory stick, take the memory stick out and plug it in the new computer and copy/paste the files from the memory stick to the computer.

you may need to do these steps for few times if you have a large amount of data

cheers
