Get USB hub....USB2.0 ....

Serial.... if the files are in GB......... God bless you...

Portableable HDD

use CF/SM/MD/MS/ SD/MMC to transfer... blah blah blah./..

so many ways... so which one you like?

- The most traditional way (a bit slow though), use a LapLink Parallel cable + software.

- If both have 10/100Mbps Ethernet, connect via a cross ethernet cable and configure both IP accordingly. e.g. 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2 This way you can transfer at 100Mbps. If your ethernet is 10Mbps, can transfer at 10Mbps.

- Get one of those USB to USB transfer cables and install drivers on both.

- Take out the harddisk of the laptop and connect to PC via the appropriate adaptor

So many ways!

If both ur machine have LAN, you can use crossover cable..set both at DHCP...and map the other machine n transfer the files...starting it will take some time to map, but after that u will get quite fast transfer rate...depend on your LAN card...

If both got LAN, that's the fastest way. Buy the crossover cable, hook them up, configure, then can transfer liao. Temporarily disconnect from SCV.

Hey Sulhan, thanks for the offer.

I reckon i will go buy once since i would be using it often enough. How much did you get it for and where did you get it from?

The package comes with a USB cable and software yah? :)

A special usb ended cable on both ends and one embedded chip at the center.

Just need to install the software on both sides and wallah!!! you are all set. Very useful....!!!....

The software will launch a browser like the FIle Manager...and you can see both the Source and the destination drive....

Just Drag and Drop......

regards,
Sulhan

Actually, since u already have got the ethernet cards, the cheapest way would be to get a cross cable - only < $10 (10 m one).

USB1.1 would prove to be quite slow and not suitable if you're transferring large files.

Alternatively, if you have intentions on sharing your internet connection, you can get a router (2nd-hand = ~$70) and hook up everything.

Was actually considering wireless boardband routers... how practical is that?

Well, it is a great solution if u need the convenience and want to avoid to hassle of lining the wires neatly.

A brand new wireless ADSL/Cable router should cost ~$200+.

If you're on a tight budget, there's a new product by linksys (~$115) - a router with a PC Card expansion slot (for inserting an 802.11b card). It basically has 4 ports for wired lan connections and should you require wireless solutions, just plug in an 802.11b PC Card.

Btw, the wireless LAN card is going for $58 now (deluxe HWZ members).
