    Question data transfer

    i have a pc running win xp sp2 and a laptop runing win 98 se..i have some data on the laptop which i want to transfer to my pc so that i can write them to a cd...how would i be able to do that....the data is in the form of .jpeg files so transfering them all on floppies and then copying from it could be a pain...

    i thought of using usb cables to connect the laptop and the pc...but was wondering if the laptop would get recognised by my pc or would i require some drivers or somin...(sorry if that made no sense! )

    well.. does the laptop currently have a NIC card? if it does, i would go get a crossover cable and be done with it. plug them in, share the parent folder, and you're set.

    Laplink is a program for transfering files from a PC to another one. It works with USB cable but I remember it worked also with serial or parallel cable (very slow!!).

    If your notebook and your PC have two ethernet cards (NIC), the easiest way for moving files is using a crossover cable as suggested from Zak8022.
