How do I transfer data from the hard drive on a VF-16 to a new hard drive


Why do that? You can add a second drive to the computer easily without removing the one that is already in there. If it's a laptop you can get USB external drives that will act the same way. If you don't want to do that then there is software available that will transfer the data .

I want to transfer all my programs from my old computer to another computer. I bought my wife an new computer and I get her old one. can I hook a usb cable from my old computer to her old computer and just...


Yes, you can transfer your DATA from one to the other but not programs. Programs write information into the registry and as a result cannot be transfered to anoter machine. There are programs that can do it. LapLink is one. I have know connection with LapLink software.
I have used it and in general it works but ther can be some minor gliches.
Hope this helps. I do this for fun, not $$, so your feed back is my reward.

Transferring data from an external hard drive


Best solution is to make an image of the PC and then use that image to transfer it back. Norton Ghost is a good application for that, but there are more.

Cannot transfer any files from my computer to my external hard


Did you install the drivers for the drive? Is it recognised in Windows as a device? If not, try reconnecting and Windows should prompt you to install the drivers, Assuming the drive is recognised by WIndows, then are a few causes for not transferring data. I've attached a link to Western Digital's FAQ regarding Data Transfer problems with your drive....

http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc.cfg/php/enduser/std_alp.php?p_sid=nCt181pj&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=1017&p_li=&p_page=1&p_new_search=1&p_search_type=answers.search_nl&p_sort_by=&p_search_text=transferring+data

Several page of possible solutions are listed above.... however, you can refine the search if it is only happening when running specific apps or @ specific times. The answer you seek is located in this link. If you can provide more details on the type of file(s) you are trying to transfer and how, I'll refine the solution for you....

Transfer between 2 External Drives


the best program for this file transfer is Director Opus 9 this can transfer 100gig in under 1hr as with windows transfer takes 6hrs.

As I do alot of video capture and my filse range from 400mb to 4gig in size and having to transfer 700 gig about would take forever and with this program quick and easy you also can transfer over lan or wirless net.

happy transfering

My Western Digital 320GB MyBook... Problem


If all you want to do is transfer data that you have backed up on your main computer then all you need to do is plug the drive into another computer, click on 'my computer' and click on the mybook drive to explore the data on it. To transfer a certain file just copy it and paste it onto the drive of the new computer.

If you are talking about backing up data from a second PC, you will need to install the WD software on that particular PC, and use the advanced backup menu. Just remember that if you back up a second computer, you need to create a folder for that data to be stored in, otherwise it is possible that it would overwrite the data from your first PC

in otherwords to back up several PCs the root of the WD drive should have folders in it labeled - 'PC 1', 'PC 2', etc

Hope this helps
