Hi, Can anyone please tell me if I can use a transfer cable to transfer my files from my old xp base unit to my new Vista Medion 8833 but with my one and only monitor. I am using a Belkin KVM Switch with built in cabling so OK for `switching` from one to the other via the keyboard but there`s the `rub`. One monitor and no spares! I have a FreeLogix cable all ready to go Cheers Bill
Yes thanks Taff. Well I just want to transfer what ever I can,settings and documents etc,and yes I would be using Windows easy transfer which is explained in my `Windows for Dummies.`Im one of those! Its just that Im in the position of not knowing what the right hand is doing with just the one monitor. How would you go about it Taff if you had just the one monitor. Simple guy (old) so a simple answer if possible please.
Did a very long reply last night but must have been logged off because it did not go. Not the first time. In a nut shell I mentioned that unless it was a very straightforward solution I would not be able to cope with it. Ive reached the stage in my life where the brain dosnt function as well but Im willing to have a go. All your suggestions seem very acceptable its when I come to things to do which I know nothing about. Marg7 seems OK until mention of ethernet crossover cable transfer and a work group are mentioned. I have been inside PCs in the old days so could use quillers suggestion. Dont mind mechanical things if it was that easy. Not sure how I would do it by DVDs but of course would try anything if I was led! Think Im still on line so will get this off. Many thanks for all your help. Bill
