An internal or external CD writer would be the easiest. Failing that click here

Another way and possibly cheaper depending on file size would be a USB Card reader and a compact flash card. You can take tha card reader home with you to transfer data to the card. I used this system for some time with school work.

If both computers are contected to the internet and the file isn't too big, email them to yourself, I do it you the time from work to home and vicky verky.

If you have a website upload to it from 1 PC and then download to the other. If you use the supereasy Yahoo Geocities you don't even need to put your stuff on the website. Just save in file manager ready for download.

Could use e-mil and if it's too big for an attachment, try and compress it using winzip or similar program so it might fit in the e-mail.

I bought a "memory stick" - £19 at PCWorld - that works O.K.
