Having aquired a new computer I wish to transfer some of my Documents and Photo's etc is there any way of connecting the two computers in order to tranfer details etc, this is from XP to Vista ? or is it safer to burn to disc and reload? in the New computer.

You can network the two compters together

either directly via a crossover cable or through a router with a patch cable or even wirelessly if you have a wirless router.

If you have a memory pen simply copy a pen full to it.
Then plug into the new computer and copy off the precious data.

Repeat as neccesary!
