I have a laptop running Win 98 and a PC running Win XP. In the past I have used Laplink to transfer files but the software I have is for Win 95!! I still have the yellow cable - is it possible for me to use the yellow cable to connect the laptop to the pc and transfer the files and if it is, would it show as another drive?
I don't have a CD writer on the laptop and the files are too big for a floppy. I am currently trying to do it by sending myself emails but its taking forever and is costing me money as I have to use a dial up with the laptop (the pc is on cable.
but having spent most of the day having to dial up to transfer the files - I have just decided to buy one of those portable USB flash thingies. I was contemplating it a few weeks ago and wish I had done it then.
Yep - these USB pendrives are fine for transferring files. Obtained my 128MB one from Blankdiscshop for £23 which is a cheaper price than some of the other outlets. Goes by the name of "Ram Bo". Very handy for transferring files from one comp to another. Now have another of these Pen Drives from MicroDirect but whilst similar its different maker and cost slightly more. Both however come with a CD-Rom driver disc for WINDOWS 98 only.
