Following advice in this Forum I connected my new computer (Windows XP) and my old one (ME)with a serial cable (null modem)
I managed to use the File Transfer wizard to move my settings across but now cannot do the same for the files I want to move. I am told by my old computer "cannot find your new computer" -despite the cable connection working
I tried the "Guest" and "Host" set up routine, but this told me that my connection "was not working"
The only thing I have done since successfully transferring my Settings is to accept the installation of XP Service Pack 2 from Microsoft's Automatic Update Service.
Do you think this is the problem or could you offer any other suggestions please?
