    Hi all, I have two pcs - an older Compaq Presario S5000NX with an XP OS, and a brand new Compaq Presario CQ5123F with a Vista OS that I am now setting up. I have only one moniter - a newHP w2007 wide screen. In the old machine are documents that I need to transfer to the new pc. I have bought a Dynex Easy Transfer Cable with a cd for the S5000NX, but I have had no luck to date in getting the data (MS Publisher 2007 files (*.pub)) over to the Vista pc. What am I doing wrong, and how can I transfer these files to the new machine with no problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Presuming both machine have USB ports, it would be easier to copy the files to a USB stick and do the transfer that way.
