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 .

Purchased a belkin easy transfer cable. When


One of the most common problems is the computer's operating system not recognizing the cable's drivers. This is most common with non-English operating systems. The quickest solution is to download the most recent driver.
If the Easy Transfer Cable isn't working properly, you can try a few things to fix the problem. Make sure that you have installed the Easy Transfer Cable drivers on your old computer with the CD that is included in the cable package. If you did not do this, close Windows Easy Transfer, insert the CD that came with the Easy Transfer Cable into your old computer, and then follow the instructions on the screen. When this is complete, begin the transfer process again.
USB ports might be another cause of the problem. When Windows Easy Transfer asks you to connect your computers with the Easy Transfer Cable, try plugging the cable into other USB ports on your computers.
A more complex problem involves the F5U409 USB PDA Adapter (The USB/Serial Portable Adapter) not installing properly. If the driver is unzipping, but the unit is not working, you need to manually update the drivers. They should all unzip to a file called F5U109 in the C: drive of your computer. Point to this file through the Device Manager to update.

Hope it helps.

Transfer all files from my old desktop to new laptop


you can do that by following the steps below;
Instructions
  1. Step 1 Connect your laptop to your desktop through a home network connection. If you have a home network, you can hook up your laptop to it via an Ethernet cable or a wireless network card. Then, you can set a folder on your desktop computer to be shared across the network. To set a folder as shared in Windows, simply right click on it, select "Sharing and security," select the "Share" tab and check the box labeled "Share this folder on the network." You will then be able to access this folder from your laptop and transfer files to your.hard drive.
  2. Step 2 Purchase a USB jump drive. These handy devices are the size of a key but can store five gigabytes of files or even more, depending on the type of USB jump drive you buy. Insert the USB jump drive into your USB port and your operating system should find it as new hardware. If a window doesn't automatically come up, you can find in your drives under "My Computer." Then, you can click and drag files into it, remove the drive and take it to your desktop computer and access the files there.
  3. Step 3 Put your files onto another external storage device, such a CD, floppy disk or external hard drive. Files are transferable between any computers as long as you can store them on something external, then use that external device to move them to the other computer.
  4. Step 4 Email files to yourself. If you only have a few files that you would like to transfer and don't have any of the equipment used in Steps 1 through 3, send yourself an email with the files attached, access your email from the other computer and download the files to your hard drive.

I need to transfer files from an old computer using Windows 2000 pro to a new computer runing Vista. The problem is that I cannot get my old computer to do a backup to my cd or to an external device.


When you upgrade to Windows Vista, you can use Windows Easy Transfer to transfer files and settings from a Microsoft Windows-based computer to the Windows Vista-based computer. When you use Windows Easy Transfer, you can decide what to transfer to Windows Vista. You can also select the transfer method that you want to use. See Microsoft's article on the subject at

Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer


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.

Iomega 500 Gb external hard drive - won't allow transfer of large files


well..allowing is maybe close, but this is most likely a bandwidth from the laptop to the external drive..how do you have them connected? USB Ethernet? for that type of file size, you may find Enet to be the best, or USB 2.0
