I've got a nice little cruzer mini 1.0 GB put out by Scandisk that I've used before to transfer files onto it...just for storage... and it works fine.

However, this weekend my sister-in-law wants me to transfer her address book and a few word doc. files from her old PC (Gateway) to her new PC (Dell). All the stuff she wants me to transfer is way less than 1 GB.

I know how to extract the info from her old PC but once I plug the thumb drive into her USB slot on her new Dell I don't know how to get the old address book into her new address book and her 2 or 3 word doc. into her word program if there is such a way??? This is my question and where I need help! I appreciate and thank you for all your help in advance. Thank you!

for the word documents...they're just files..you don't need to worry about "getting them into her word program" as all she has to do is double click the files and they will open

for the address book...what mail program is this?

there...there's the export and import instructions...so basically you follow the export steps to export the contacts to a csv...save that file to your usb drive...then plug the drive into the new computer and follow the import steps...then point the import at that csv file on the usb drive..and you're good to go
