Is it possible to down load from a CD to a flash card?


Hi tanyainscotl,

Do you mean transfer files from CD to Flash drive?

Yes, but you need to reap first the CD before transfering the files or Music files to Flash drive. If you transfering movie files from CD to Flash drive, it is possible, just open the files from CD then COPY the movie you want to transfer to Flash drive.


Hope this helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

How to transfer from old to new computer


If you are using windows Xp - there is a transfer files option that will help transfer files from one pc to another using a serial cable.

To find that option, go to start, programs - accessories and then system tools and slide down to file transfer and follow the prompts.

You can also burn the files you wish to transfer to a cd and insert it in the pc you wish to transfer them to and then open them one by one and save them. You can use a memory stick and save the files to it and then plug it into the usb port of the pc you want to transfer the files to and open the drive then save the files one by one to the new pc.

If the files are not too large in size, you can email them to yourself and then open your email account in the pc you wish to transfer the files to and save them to it.

Hope this helps?

Plug your usb pen into a usb slot on your computer,

Select your usb drive by double clicking it to open it,

Open itunes and right click on the song you would like to transfer,

have your usb drives window open in another screen and drag and drop the music file from its location the the usb drive, it will tell you how long is left of transfer, once finished transferring the notification of transferring wil then stop and close.

Select multiple music files to transfer by highlighting them and right clicking any one of them and then again completing the steps above.

Cant download music


try NOT going through media player as it tries to convert any audio. keep your files as mp3. preferably stored in "My music" file on your computer. then when you connect your psp via USB go to "open folder to view files" then open psp/music file. leave it open and open a "My computer" window my documents/my music, then just click and drag to psp/music file.

Opening Psion 5 files in my PC


You need to transfer them using PsiWin - it will automatically convert the files p[roperly between PC and Psion versions.
You cannot just transfer the files via i.e. the CF card and expect them to work.

I believe versions of AbiWord can read Psion Word Processor files directly but have never tried this myself.

S-SNAP AV100 Unable to open movie files on my pc.


MOD files should be viewable using MediaPlayer. I know at least with version 11. There's some chance though that you will need the codec, but don't you have this in the software CD supplied with the camera? If the camera transfers in MOD most chances that it's the best format to transfer on. Later you can convert it probably if you want. Good luck
