  • transfer files to a laptop

    I want to transfer all my audio and video files from my pc at home to my laptop car pc. What is the best way to do that?

    Network, external hard drive, usb fob depending on the size of your collection. You could also burn them onto dvd's if you had nothing else.

            Transfer files

            You could transfer files one of three ways:
            1. burn your collection to disk and read them on the laptop (not effecient)
            2. Most (if not all) computers have an ethernet connecton. You could connect the computers with an ethernet cable and copy the files that way.
            3. The most effecient way would be to install a wireless network. The hub and cards can be purchased for less than $100 (you may be able to do the work with left over parts for a lot less).
            Using methods 2 or 3 require you to 'share' out your music library. If you are going wireless, set up the proper security and share only the music parent directory. If you're paranoid, set up the sharing as read only.
            good luck,

              Do I HAVE to use a crossover cable to do file transfer or can I just use a regular ethernet cable?

                If you arent going through a hub or switch you have to use a crossover

                  Networking 101.
                  Gotta love it.
                  Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                  How about the Wiki?

                      For mobile applications, wifi is your best bet, but don't underestimate a simple wired connection when the wireless signal is blocked.
