I don't think he's THAT stupid...

There's this thing called "Windows Transfer" or something. Tell me if you're on XP and I'll try to figure out how this works.

The USB cord you're using is meant as an extension cord. You can't link computers with them. They're not like gameboys!

You might need an ethernet cable I think.

Open both computers up, and hook one hard drive into the other computer's power supply and motherboard.

That's how I got all my music onto this computer. But that only works if you have enough connections.

Ok. Simple solutions:

- Get an external harddisk or a small USB memory stick.
- Find a router and hook both of your computers into it to create a network, then share your music folders on both computers, then find "My Network Places" on your start menu, work your way from there to the other computer's folders and copy-paste.

You can with some USB cables (http://www.usbfiletransfer.com/), I know the standard one won't work.

Then I don't think you'll be able to run the wizards to transfer files. Your best bet is to get a USB key (or even better, a USB disk: I seriously couldn't live without mine). Be sure to get a nice one though because cheap ones have a bad habbit of corrupting files.

it's not as hard as that^

just grab an ethernet cable, connect the ethernet ports in the back of the computers, and put your music in your "shared" folder. Then you can move the files out of the shared folder onto your hard drive

This doesn't work with all ethernet cables. They need to have crossed wires for this to work, and if you're allready using it to plug into your router, you're fucked.

Oh, ok. All the cables I've used have worked, even the low-quality cable I got packed in with my surge protector. If TS has an extra one laying around, he should at least give it a try.

Get a network connection set-up and turn on file-share. Then just go back and forth over the network connection in your house.

yeah, ethernet cable, but it needs to be a crossover one if you want computer directly to comp
