I have a pc upgraded to windows xp pro from millinium and a laptop with windows 2000 pro. I want to transfer pictures from the pc to the laptop. Can I connect them using a usb cable or must I use a serial connection? How is this done? :rolleyes:
I've never heard of using a USB cable before. I know on the macs, you can use FireWire to do a direct mac2mac connection. I take it you don't have macs though ;)
I think your best bet is to buy a crossover network cable to form a 2-PC network (they would plug into the nic port on your machines, which almost all newer PCs come equipped with). If you need more help, check out our Networking forum :)
laplink is an excelent program. I'm not sure if its still being made, but you can probably find it somewhere. There is another program floating around on the web which will allow you to connect a USB cable from one PC to the next, and transfer files. Google it, and Im sure you can come up with something
it is possible to connect two pcs or a pc and a laptop using Bridged or USB networking cable. A Cd is provided with the cable, install the program on the both and then connect the cable. Don't use the normal usb cable, then you might as well burn your motherboard.
