If your external hard drive is formatted, open your Explorer or whatever browser you use and move complete folders at a time. If you do that gradually the C drive will ease up and work faster. When you have moved as much as you want to drive E, use drive E as a large memory bank. It is possible to put your new drive as a slave in your desktop and move files like that or indeed place the new empty drive into your descktop as drive C, format it and install your system files on it from your system disk. It is also possible to clone the C drive onto your E drive using software available online. When it has cloned the disk check that it all works and then put the new drive as drive C removing the old C drive. Hope that is not too confusing.
Nice having you get a PC for yourself, basically if you want to download music onto a file to store on your PC, then you'll have to do any of the following;
1. Get the music files from another location on an external storage like a flash drive,external hard disc, etc. Get the music from say another PC into the external storage and connect the external storage to your computer and transfer the files to your computer. This should not be difficult either.
2. You can connect the computer to the internet and download directed by specifying the location that you need the music file to be downloaded to. Once this is done you can now go ahead and save. One of the websites you can get some music files from included www.rnbxclusive.com
Your problem is most likely a format or codec problem.(you dont have the right one installed) Download the free VLC media player here http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
Its a free program that plays almost everything, without the need for downloading new codecs all the time. If by chance this does not solve the problem, take note of the file extension of the file you are trying to play. Google "extension + .avi" to find out what plays an avi file google "extension +.mov" to find out that that is a QUICKTIME file.(which very well maybe as its very popular for movie cam formats)
If you dislike using VLC for some reason then you can buy and install the proper program to play the proper file kind *s* but VLC will play 99 % of files.
some external hard drives comes with software that would enable you to backup entire files/folders with a single click or command. Some with a built in switch that perform the same action. As for an entire OS, you said you want to "move" the entire system? I guess you can do this using a program like norton ghost, that will create an exact image of your OS and place it to your hard disk.
I understand that you are trying to move data from your computer to an external hard drive.
You can just copy and paste the files like Music, Pictures to the external movies when it is connected to the computer. The hard drive owuld be listed as an removable storage device icon in the My Computer window if you are using windows XP.
However, we cannot just copy and paste the programs in the hard drive. You need the installation files to be copied to the external hard drive, if you want them to eb backed up.
