Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer

I want to transfer files from my old compaq windows 98 to my new hp window vista. I don't want to lose all of my pictures and other information.
I put a cd in my old compaq, but it only ask me to send to floppy disk, which I can't because I don't have a floppy disk on my new hp windows vista. How can I copy the files and transfer them to my new hp windows vista?

Although Vista comes with an Easy File Transfer Wizard it is not compatible with Windows 98.

You will need a CD burning program such as Nero Burning Suite or Creative CD Writer or here is a link to a FREE one.

INSTALL A NEW HARDDRIVE TO MY HP PAVILION A1220N ERROR MESSAGE COMES UP BOOT MGR IS MISSING


You need to install an operating system like windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Linux OS. Your hard drive is blank now and needs programming. If you have a friend that can clone your old drive then they will be able to copy everything from your old drive as it was to your new one. Might need to contact a local computer technician to re-install windows for you if not sure. Also you need to consider the price of windows XP, Vista or 7 if you don't have a copy!! Good luck!!

Hp dc5800 recovery cd lost ibought new hd how could i make new recovery partition in the new hd?


There isn't any way to build a new recovery partition on a new empty hard drive. The recovery partition is put on when the drive is imaged at the manufacturer, but you don't have any source to copy from. If you don't have a recovery disc set, you have two options. The first option is to see if HP sells a recovery disc for your computer. It's unlikely, and expensive if they do have them available.

The second option is to do a fresh installation of Windows yourself. This is a little more work, but it's not difficult. You'll need a copy of Windows, the same version that came installed on the computer. (For a Vista machine, you just need the "Anytime Upgrade" DVD, which has all the Vista versions on it.) You'll also need to download any hardware drivers needed from HP's website. The installation is mostly automatic; you just need to enter the product key at some point, and you'll find that on the Windows sticker on the computer case. After Windows is done installing, install the hardware drivers and activate Windows. (When the recovery partition or a restore disc is used, the activation is automatic.)

How do I get all my old info, pics, documents and all stuff saved from my old desk top computer compaq presario 5700n windows 98 second edition so i can put it on my lap top, my flash drive won't work on...


Take the hard drive out and get someone knowledgeable to put it in their system as a slave drive. Then plug your flash drive into their system and copy all the files to it. I'd say this is the fastest and easiest solution to the problem. You could always network it to another computer and transfer the files also.

Transferring data from old computer to new computer


If its connected to the internet email the files to yourself and then save to your new computer. If its not online, you could try taking out the hard drive, make it a slave in your new computer and moving the data from one drive to the other then take it out and good to go.

USB data transfer from old to new computer


You cannot directly link a Windows 98 computer to another computer via USB(without special hardware). The easiest way to do what you are trying to accomplish would be to hook both computers up to a router and share files over a network.

You cant transfer files from your old computer with Win 95 Using windows easy transfer which is a file transfer software in vista . If you want to transfer files then you have to copy them on a cd or dvd then paste them to your new computer . It will take a lot of time . Call a computer expert and tell him that you want to transfer the file from your old computer . He will do that easily .

Please rate me .
