Migrating XP to Windows 7 (Using your Network)


If you are thinking of buying a new PC and trying to replace an old XP system to a new Windows 7, you might want to transfer your old favorite files to your new computer. Either transferring through a Easy Transfer cable, Network, or via USB

This procedures assumes that your old XP is still working and connected to your home or office network. and your new Win 7 is also connected as well to your networkBoth of your system and computer must be connected to the same network, either in the office or home, because it is easier to transfer files in this way, effectively and efficiently, this is practical than using USB flash drive or any external disk, though the process is similar.

Ensure that you have the Win7 InstallationDVD, or the Easy Transfer Software fromMicrosoft website, ready to be installed on your XP system. but be aware this is for 64 bit version system only, please visit Microsoft website search and download Windows easy Transfer and select "x86" in the file name for 32 bit or 64 bit, install this the same way you've done with ordinary software. In your Win 7 however, this software is automatically installed so do not bother yourself.

In this instance you will be asked if whether you want to transfer your whole data from all user accounts or to just specific user only, in this process you can also select specific files to transfer, but in order to transfer all accounts, both of your XP and WIN 7 must be logged as an Administrator.

So this procedure is Migrating through NETWORK, the other two procedure is Easy Cable Transfer and USB, external Hard disk.

1- Prepare both systems and ensure both are connected to the network and working, Start the XP computer and log in as an Admin
2- IN XP , Open up the and start the Windows Easy Transfer DVD, and look or browse for SupportMigwiz. if you have downloaded this simply select Start> All Program> Windows Easy Transfer for Win 7, it will load automatically. Simply read the screen for additional info and click Next
3- A new screen pops out and please select a Network as an option to transfer
4- Click This is my OLD COMPUTER, Still in XP Windows Easy Transfer will then generate a password for the transferring process, because in order to transfer files through the network you will be required to enter a password (record the KEY)

caae297.jpg

After you enter the key, at this time Windows Easy Transfer makes the connection and scans the Windows XP system's contents and components. Once this is over, you can practically choose which data you want to transfer, or you want to import, just like customizing the items you wish to transfer. After you have decided which is which, click Transfer, then a progress bar will appears the process occurs.

The final screen will then show up indicating the process is complete. Confirm to see if the file you have chosen was actually transferred, then close all window, including the Easy Transfer Windows.

Restart your computer, please. Congratulations!

Phone to computer transfer pictures


Plug it into the Zune software and perform a synchronization. The zune software is available here: http://support.xbox.com/zune/software/download
Follow the setup, and they should automatically be transferred upon synchronization. You can also enable auto-upload to SkyDrive, and you will be able to download any pictures you take on your phone onto your computer through SkyDrive.

I cannot transfer pics to my computer windows 7


I have researched with your model and found that drivers are not available from the manufacturer. However, most of the Still cameras do not require driver or software to transfer images now a days.


Once you connect the Camera to the computer, you will get the Camera as a removable drive under My Computer. You can open the removable drive to see the pictures stored in the Camera/Memory Card.


If the Operating System installed in your Computer still needs a driver, you may use the Memory Card slot on the Computer to transfer the pictures. Please follow the steps to transfer pictures using Memory Card Reader in the Computer:


- Remove the Memory Card from the Camera.

- Insert it in the Memory Card slot in the Computer.

- Open the pop up window or find out the removable drive under My Computer.

- Copy the required files to a folder in the Computer.


Note : Most of the Notebooks comes with its own Memory Card Slot. If it does not, you may get one from the market without much spending.


Thanks for understanding.


Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I cant transfer the pictures from the cam to the comp. I have installed the software from the CD and when i connect the cam to the comp and click on "start transfer", I get a "found 13....24...


I have found lately that some of the new computer operating systems are not at all compatible with camera firmware. The camera software appears to work but as you are experiencing the transfer of files doesn't function. I'm surprised that it's actually restarting the computer, which makes me wonder if you have followed the correct transfer work flow. I'm not saying this camera but some, you need to have the camera off while installing the cable between the camera and computer and then push and hold the playback button for a long second before you get the transfer screen.

The work around all of this is to purchase a card reader, make sure it is capable of handling the SDHC memory card, I would also suggest that you purchase a Multiple port card reader so that in the future the reader can be used with different memory cards.

The Card Reader plugs into a USB port on the computer and the memory card installs in the reader port. The computer looks at this as an external hard drive (mass storage device) and you can download your picture files to a folder you create in My Documents (computer hard drive). These picture files can then be opened in the camera software.

Basically all you have done is step around the camera firmware and ended any conflict in programing. I don't know if you are PC or Mac but the problem I've found started when Windows introduced their new Windows 7.

I recently upgraded my computer from windows xp to windows 7. I have a harmony 890. I know it is not compatible with windows 7. What can I do to update my remote?


According to Logitech, the Harmony Software version 7.6 is compatible with Windows 7 as is your Harmony 890. You may need to download the 7.6 version of the software. All of your settings should transfer over to the new software, since your profile is stored on Logitech's server.

Need a free download for my sony cyber shot dsc-w55 to download pictures on my computer


You do not need any Driver or Software to transfer the images from the Camera to the Computer.

1. Set the USB Connection or Transfer mode setting in the Camera menu to Mass Storage or Normal .

2. Connect the Camera to the Computer using the supplied USB cable or any USB cable.

3. The Computer will recognize the Camera (make sure that the recording media containing the pictures (Memory Stick) is inserted in the Camera).

4. Click the Start button and then click the "My Computer" icon (for XP Operating System and for Vista or Windows 7 it will be "Computer" icon).

5. In the "My Computer" or "Computer" window, click the icon that represents the Camera.

6. Click the "DCIM" folder and drag it to the desktop screen of the Computer to transfer the images from the Camera to the Computer.

However, you may download the supplied Picture Motion Browser software for the Camera from this Link.

No need for you to install any CD software because your camera
will be recognized automatically as a removable disk when your computer has the following Operating Systems.

For transferring pictures with OS (Windows 98/XP/Vista/2000/MAC 9.2-10.3 ):
- Turn off camera
- Plug USB cable to camera and PC
- Turn on camera
- Connect to computer or printer will come out on camera screen
- Select the desired one
- Press MENU/OK
- "New Hardware Found" will be seen on the right lower corner
- A window will pop out with various options
- Example: "Open to View Files", "Copt to a folder"...

* If nothing like those mentioned above happened,

Double check through Computer Devices with Removable storage:
- Look for DCIM folder in any of the Removable storage
- Select 100sscam folder inside DCIM folder
- Upon opening, all pictures will be viewed

Just try to make sure that you'll be using the USB cable supplied
in the package and your PC does have good working USB ports.
