Hi,

1. Have you tried inserting the memory stick after it asks you to insert media? Try it...

2. If that doesn't work, don't use the Easy Transfer option. Simply plug in your memory stick, wait for it to get recognized and initiated, and simply drag and drop using Windows Explorer (Right click START button and select 'Explore').

How can I tranfer files from an windows xp hard disc to windows 7 64 bit I know I can use windows easy transfer but my old computer isn't working that well so is there an easy way to do this thanks...


If I understood you right, just get an HDD case for your Windows XP hard disk so you can plug it through USB to your new computer then copy your files normally.
If the XP hard disk is a laptop hard disk (2.5" inches), get one of these, else, its a 3.5" inches hard disk, these cases are also widely available.

I hope this helps

In your new computer go to all programs then to your user guide. Once there open the guide and follow prompts to transfer data from old computer to your new one. Some stuff may have to be reformatted do work with Vista.

Mp3 file transfer


When you plug an mp3 into a Vista computer, it formats the player in a specific way - you will have to reformat the mp3 player on the new computer, which will end up erasing all of your songs - so, no, there is not exactly a way to do what you are trying to do - sorry
