I assume you do not have a CDRW?
You can buy a caddy with a USB connections, put your hdd in that and then you have a usb hdd, then connect to laptop and transfer.

Please explain a bit more as I am really trying to guess your situation?

Alternatively, depending on what OS you have installed, hook up a laplink cable between the two PC's and run INTERLNK.EXE on one and INTERSVR.EXE on the other. Might be slow, but it works... Hope this helps.
