Dear Sir,

The easiest way would be by use of a floppy disk or CD-R. Do you have a CD burner attached to the Mac IIci? I am assuming you at least have floppy (unless it died). Do you have a floppy on the HP?

If you can get the files onto floppy or CD (Mac formatted), then you can use MacDrive to mount the floppy or CD on the HP. As an alternative, depending on which version of the Mac OS you are using and what components you have installed, you might be able to insert a Windoze formatted floppy into the Mac and copy files to it...then you would not need MacDrive on the HP. It is tougher to get a Windoze formatted CD-R...I don't recall if any Mac OS burning utilities in the pre-OS X days could burn Windoze CDs or not.

If none of those options work, then a networking option might be possible IF you have an ethernet port on your Mac IIci. If not, then that option is kind of dead.

So, I will wait until you let me know if you have floppy or CD options or a network connection and we can go from there.

Thanks
Good Luck

I recommend using a thumb drive (usb flash drive). They are cheap, very convenient and easy to use. If it is a very large amount of data to be transferred, then I would recommend getting an external hard drive that plugs into your usb.

SOURCE: transfer files

If both computers have a CD or DVD burner/drive, you can put them on CDs or DVDs. If not, and they both have USB drives, you can use a flash drive or portable USB hard drive to move the files.

Can't transfer my email files from old computer to new computer


Good Day!



To transfer files from an old computer you can use USB or flash drives, copy the files from your Old Computer to Flash drive, after copying---attach the flash drive to your new computer then copy the files and save it. This is the easiest way to transfer files.

Other way of transferring;

-You can also transfer files by Burning your files into a CD/DVD and copy it to your new computer.
-Get your hard disk from the old computer and attached it to your new computer
-Or connect/network your two computers.

I recommend USB or Flash drives, the simplest and easy way.

Hope I was able to help.

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.
