Copy files from laptop to Desktop

  chriscross72 08:20 23 Nov 2004

Is it possible to connect my partners laptop to my pc using a usb cable to transfer files so they can be saved onto a cd.
My pc runs XP pro and the laptop runs ME
We want to do a clean XP install on the laptop but need to save any files and programmes not on cd from the laptop for re-use after XP has been installed.
What would be the best way to do this?
There is no rewriter on the laptop

Thank you : ))

Yes, you can get a special USB cable to connect them - about £10 or so. Try ebuyer or similar.
