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.

I use MS Money 2001. I bought a new PC and is changing from MS Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Pro. I would like my ms money 2001 to continue working on new PC but I can't find the original disc to copy on...


Hi pjhmulder
Assuming MS Money 2001 and 2003 are compatible with W 7 , you could install MS Money 2003 on the new computer and copy the files from MS Money 2001 on the old computer to MS Money 2003 on the new computer . Make sure you don't erase the MS Money 2001 files before transfer has successfully been executed .
Best regards ,

I have a belkin easy transfer cable. How do i transfer photo's


On the old computer, run Vista's "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" to write one large file onto the old computer. The "export" file will contain your pictures.

Copy, via the transfer-cable, that one file to the new computer.

Run the "import" function of the Windows 7 Files and Settings Transfer Wizard to read the copied file.

File transfer with Dynex cable


USB transfer cables are quite special and not a regular USB cable.

A better (and cheaper) option is if both have network ports (Ethernet)

Then use a crossover cable. This is usually much much faster than USB and also more reliable.

Enable file and printer sharing on both computers.
Also make sure they both share the same work-group common examples are MSHOME or WORKGROUP

Once that is done you have a few options.

The better option is to use file and settings transfer wizard or similar built into windows. This will step you through the process and allow you to carry over your email and address book plus all your documents.

Another is to use copy and paste to pick the items you want and move them directly to where you want them (his does not work as well as the FST option but is quick just for documents etc.

Dont try to copy programs as they don't transfer well for the most part.

If usb is your only option then be very aware that USB 1.0 to any USBwill be extremly slow and even subject to failure. USB 2.0 to USB 2.0 is the only reccomended usb transfer method

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.

Need driver CD for HP3740


Hi

The printer doesn't support windows 98. supported systems are:

» Microsoft Windows Vista
» Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit)
» Microsoft Windows XP
» Microsoft Windows XP x64
» Microsoft Windows 2000
» Mac OS X
» Mac OS 9
» Linux

Drivers are available at this page below:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=401496&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=3&submit.x=8&lang=en&cc=us

Note that there are no drivers for 98 and it won't be simple to get the printer to work with the 98.. I would recommend upgrading to 2000 or windows xp. if your computer is from 1998 it might be better to buy a new computer.

Todays printers don't work with 10 year old computers anymore.

linux would work on the computer for sure, and so would the printer but using linux is quite complex, you would need to get someone to install it for you and make it look as much like windows as possible, its a whole new system..

Let me know if you need anything else.



Thanks,
Ekse

You cant transfer files from your old computer with Win 95 Using windows easy transfer which is a file transfer software in vista .
