Hi all, :)

Any help is appreciated. Newbie here.

I am planning to switch my desktop computer, so I need to save all my data somewhere.

I am planning to save all my files temporarily in my notebook.

May I know which is the most efficient way to transfer my datas?

1. Can I connect a USB cable from my computer to my notebook and transfer the files?

thanks and regards,

Depending on the amount you need to transfer, you could just burn your data to CDs... or, you could use a flash drive, or you could buy a USB transfer link cable.

Personally, I use a Compaq USB transfer cable whenever I go between my laptop and desktop. This is of course only if I have to transfer large quantities of data... like music. You can find something similar on the internet for $10 - $20. For small data moves, I just use my flash drive (1GB).

No, you can't just connect USB to USB... it must be done using some kind of link.
