Hello, would somebody please be able to offer support to me. I have recently purchased a laptop for use at college. However I need to put some information onto it, The laptop has no cd drive of floppy disk drive. However i have a double ended usb cable, Is their anyway possible that i can just transfer the data onto my laptop directly using this? If so would someone please be able to explain how to set it up?

Thank you in advance for any help i may receive, Greatly appreciated.

Yours truly,

Adam j Newton

I do not see why you cannot just use a USB flash drive to intatll any information you want on the laptop. 1 Gig USB flash drives are pretty cheap.

The above is $20 with shipping
