I use a flash memory. Copy files to it, unplug, plug into laptop and copy files to your location. On the rare occasion I have a massive file e.g. the files created when making a DVD from a camcorder tape, I use my external disk As I say, slow but easy - a bit like me really! As we say here in Greece "Sega Sega" pronounced Sea-gar = "Slowly slowly". Or, as an old freind used to say "Don't rush - ther's the whole of tommorrow not started on yet"
