I would like to copy all my music files from my hard-drice to my laptop. I do not have any network set up so I guess I need to know what kind of cable and software I need. I have about 26GB of music, mostly MP3 format and need them on my laptop for when I am travelling.
Also I use iTunes for ripping, listening and cataloguing (although rarely for buying my music). Can I get iTunes onto my laptop even though it is never connected to the Internet? Or would I just have to rely on Windows Media Player once the music files are finally transferred to my laptop?

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

The easiest way right now would be to purchase a Cat5 "Crossover" cable and make a simple P2P LAN between the two systems.. Just transfer the files once that is setup..

Thanks. I'll give it a go. Is the set-up via Windows XP Wizard?
