Hello help me please! I'm trying to transfer data from my laptop to PC. Bought a file xfer cable but computers can't seem 2 find each other. Is there a time limit on this? Used file xfer Wizard. Looked on messageboard 4 related subjects. Tried 2 find Windows Set Up on Add/Remove Programs- no trace. How can I find this? It's drivin me nuts! What am I doin wrong?

It's a Belkin Direct Cable Connection, for file transfer. Does this help?

Can anybody help me?

go into the help and support in the start menu, type parallel into the search box, pick the task called "make a direct network connection using a directparallel cable" follow the instructions it gives and everything will flow wonderfully.

If I had been you I would have bought a USB bridge Cable with software easy to setup and run that's what I use. You have bought a Crossover Cable I think and you have to go through a lot of rigamarole to set it up. A usb bridge cable is about £20 or less from a Comp Fair click here

PS you load the software on both computers before plugging in, it then asks for the CD for Drivers
