I just purchased a brand new laptop, my first one, and need to transfer a lot of data from my desktop to my laptop, including gigs of music, video, and documents from school. What is the easiest and most direct way to do this? Is there any way to directly connect them to each other? My new laptop and my desktop pc, as well as another pc, are all on a wireless network, but they cannot see each other. I don't know how to make them see each other and have tried before, with no luck at all. Any advice on the easiest way to do this?
My second question may be slightly easier. I just installed Windows Media Player 11 and have the latest quicktime installed on my computer, and embedded media runs just fine when I use Internet Explorer. I am trying to use Mozilla FireFox and for some reason none of the embedded media will play. It just tells me I need the plugin, which I believe I have. When I click to download the plugin, it says it cannot be found and that I can manually locate it. However, after this I just installed the latest versions of both Quicktime and WMP, but they still wont work in FireFox even though they work in IE.
Am I missing an option here for FireFox about embedded media?
Thanks for any help in advance!
