I am trying to transfer my various files to my new laptop computer configured with Windows 7 from my old laptop computer configured with Windows XP Professional, using the Windows Easy Transfer program which I found on my old laptop. I have tried to make the transfer through my home wireless network and when that failed to work.. I interconnected the two laptops with a cable, (the same cable style one uses to connect one's computer to a modem or router, not a SSB cable).
So in summary, I simply want to transfer to my new laptop all my files from my old laptop. I copied the My Data master file from my old laptop onto a "stick" assuming I could simply download from the stick to the new laptop. (I have lots of "sticks" here.) The idea didn't work, of course, otherwise \i wouldn''t be asking this question now.
