Copied CD's may not work on some drives as it may be out of tolerance or it could be that the cd is burned with SW that you need to have installed on your system to read (Direct CD for example)

I wish to download windows outlook express to my new computer. I would like to transfer all the data including email addresses from my office PC onto this new Toshiba laptop


  1. Open Outlook Explorer.
  2. Right-click on the Folder at the top of the left pane, and, from the context menu that appears, select Properties (see Figure 1 below). If you are using Outlook 6, you need to expand the Folders and right-click on the Inbox (see Figure 2 below).
  3. When you select the Properties option, you are presented with a dialog box with the location of the Outlook folders (see Figure 3 below). The full path is displayed as a label in Outlook 6 and as a text box under the Advanced tab in Outlook XP or 2000.
  4. Select the entire path from "C:\" to "\Outlook Express". Do not copy the filename given after "\Outlook Express." For example, if the path is C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{B7ABE5FE}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\Inbox.dbx, you need only the C:\Documents and Settings\Arun\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{B7ABE5FE}\Microsoft\Outlook Express.
  5. Copy, paste, and save this path in a text file.
  6. Open a Windows Explorer window, and paste the path into the address bar and press Enter.
  7. Before proceeding to copy the folders to a CD or flash drive, you need to check if there are any hidden files or folders in the Outlook Express folder. To check this, check the Show Hidden Files and Folders in the View tab of the dialog box that you get when you select Folder Options in the Tools menu.
  8. The next step is to select all the files and folders in the Outlook folder. If you are using a version previous to Windows XP, you will need some CD burning software to copy the files to the CD. Otherwise, you can simply paste the files to the CD or flash drive. Do not forget to copy the text file containing the path in both cases.
  9. You now have all the emails, calendars, tasks, and other important things from Outlook, but you may also want to copy the address book. To copy the address book, use the Export option in the File menu of the Outlook Express. Once exported, use the method described above to copy it to the flash drive or to the CD. Now you are all set to move your Outlook messages to the new computer.
  10. Boot the new computer. Use the path you stored in the text file to open the Outlook Folder on the new computer. To do this, copy the path from the text file, open a Windows Explorer window, paste the path into the address bar, and hit Enter.
  11. Copy all the files from the CD or flash drive to the Outlook Express folder. When you are prompted to overwrite the files and folders, select Yes to All.

I have a Camnex T850, tried to copy a e-book from my old Camnex, The Thorn Birds, and I can't get it to copy, all my other e-books did just fine


#1: Save the e-book to your computer. Open My Documents and press it. Then click Move This Folder and move it to your Camnex.

#2: Copy the text on the e-book and open Notepad. put nothing in Notepad and save it to your Camnex then when it is saved and it again and paste the text from the e-book onto the Notepad. Then save it again.

NOTE: Solution 2 has a bigger chance of working then 1 but 1 might work two.

External hard drive use 101!


When you plug the drive into your computer it should come up as a new drive letter (drive E: for example). To back up files right click onto the files that you want to backup and left click onto copy then open the drive letter for the my book and right click and left click onto paste. this should copy any files that you would like to back up to the I book to restore simply reverse the process.
