Transfering data from one desktop to another through LAN connection

How do I use my LAN to transfer data from my Dimension hard drive to my XPS hard drive? Do I plug the data cable into the USB ports? I'm new to this, so I need simple instructions.
Thanks,
Amy

Please note that your cable will support below givne O/S check at your end.

One destination PC running Windows 7 (32- or 64-bit) and available USB port

One source PC running Windows® XP (32- or 64-bit) or Windows Vista® (32- or 64-bit) and available USB port

For Example two Pcs 1 is Xp and other pcs is Windows 7, then try to connect between both .

Another one more option is there for transfering the data between two systems either laptop or Desktop by a cross cable (LAN CABLE), buy a cross cable from shop and insert into RJ45 Socket (i.e lan socket) the try to transfer the datas.

I have a PC Dell Dimension 2400 with a hard 40 GB

Basically when you install a new boot drive you need to install Windows operating system on the new hard drive, also the device drivers (eg video, audio, modem, LAN etc), your programs and data. The reason programs has to be installed is because the installation process copied DLL files to the System folders and makes changes to the registry.
You can only copy your data onto the new hard disk.
To avoid copying your data to the new hard drive, you can set up the old hard drive as second hard drive (ie. slave drive), if you delete the redundant folders and leave only the data folders then you have an adddition 40Gb of disk space.

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

No because outlook is an installed program in your older computer so you can't transfer install programs from one hard drive to the next.

Transfer data from Dinension hard drive to XPS hard drive

If you have no experience with this, it might be easier to just copy the data from your Dimension to a external usb harddisk and then to the XPS. But i will try to explain it.

I've looked a bit around: your XPS hard drive is a SATA drive, while your the drive in your Dimension is probably a PATA-drive (just connection types. Look at the hard drives and compare them with this image to see which types they are.)
As far as I know the XPS 530 has a Foxconn G33M-S motherboard, which contains one ATA (PATA) connector. So you should be able to just connect the hard drive from your Dimension into the XPS.
To make it work properly, you should set the drive from the Dimension to slave. This can be done by setting the jumpers next to the cable connector. The jumper setting depends on your hard drive model. Usually the possible settings are shown on the hard drive.
If you feel uncomfortable with this whole thing, you could ask someone, who has some experience and who you trust to do it for you, or just use an external usb hard disk

Make sure the computers are off and disconnected from the power outlet, when you open the case...
Dell offers a user manual for your Dimension and XPS. Maybe it's of some help by removing and placing the various parts...
Please tell me how it worked out.
As you probably understand, I can't take any responsibiity for damage to your system...
If you have any problems, just post them here!

Transfering data from Maxtor to a new computer

It's a USB Hard drive, so you should plug the USB port into one computer, put your information on it, then plug the USB port into the other computer. Browse the Hard Drive for your data. It's like a larger flash drive.
