Transferring data between laptop and desktop

  vaughan007 11:37 15 Mar 2004

Hello everyone,

How can I easily transfer files between my laptop and desktop PC?

This might sound naive but can I simply connect the computers together using some sort of cable?

I only need to transfer files occasionally, but the problem I have is that some of these files are enormous (between 1 GB and 10 GB).

All help appreciated.

maplins will flog you a lead to do just that, you can see both screens on one PC so you just drag and drop

A couple of network interface cards and a crossover cable should do it for you.

But exactly which lead would that be?

USB datalink cable should do the trick. USB1 one just £5.13 inc VAT (product code 39504)click here, USB2 one £9.16 inc VAT (product code 51250)click here.
