Q: Solved: Need to transfer data from laptop drive, need adapter

I need to transfer data from a laptop HD which is the only part still left working. So I'd like to plug it into my desktop. Anyone know what sort of connector is on a 40 GB Toshiba MK4012GAS laptop hard drive (as fitted to an Advent 7026.) It looks as though it slides into an edge connector on the m/board, a bit like a smaller version on a PCI card, its certainly not pins into holes as on the wrong adapter I've already bought.

Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Windows 7 32 bit laptop ----> Windows 7 64 bit PC with USB network adapter.

I'm trying to move a folder from one computer to the other. There are about 300 files totalling 3mb.

At around "234 files remaining", the transfer freezes, and after a minute or so, the network connection on the destination computer is shown as Disabled. If I right click and choose "Enable", it makes the attempt, says "connection failed", and then "It is not possible to connect at this time. No network was detected. You may need to plug in your network cable to complete the connection."

What will fix it is unplugging the USB network adapter and replugging. But it only allows a little bit more transfer before it happens again.

I tried initiating the transfer from one computer, and again from the destination (bringing the files to it), but the problem occurs just the same. On additional attempts it will reconnect to the other computer and allow me to browse the files, but the connection crashes again without any more progress. My internet connection is fine otherwise, doesn't do this unless I'm transferring data across the network. I disabled Eset real-time protection but have windows firewall up (I'd rather not turn it off).

Any ideas on this one?

I am nnot sure if this is the right board, but here goes. I have a compaq 6270s. It was only a cheap backup for some files and office work. However recently the laptop took a bit of a bump and I am almost certain the hard drive has failed. Now I have another cheap replacement coming. The harddrive of the laptop can be easily removed. I wanted to know if it would be possible to transfer the data or at least some of it to my new computer and if so if there is a cheap piece of equipment that I can just plug the harddrive into and then connect it via USB to the laptop and just transfer like you would with any USB stick? Because the Compaq laptop won't boot up, there is nothing I can do from that angle however a quick search of Amazon showed all these results... https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2/255-9957494-1401233?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keyword... the first few seem as simple as plugging the harddrive in and connecting it via USB. Obviously the harddrive is not working to the point of booting up the laptop but might it still have the individual files I want? And secondly is the harddrive to USB as simple as I described. Thanks for your help.

Hi all,

I bought a refurbished Dell Optiplex with Windows 7 a few years ago, not a brilliant PC but it was cheap and did the job for me. I used my own TV as the monitor so it was connected via VGA.

One day when I turned it on it made a series of beeps which at the time I didn?t panic about. So I turned the power off and back on and this time it started up as normal.

Later in the day I had left for a short while but when I came back the TV?s sleep mode had kicked in and I couldn't get the computer display back on at all. So I turned it off at the power again and back on and this time it made the series of beeps again (6 in a row I believe) and it did this every time I tried powering off and on again.

I looked it up online and found that the number of beeps was a code and 6 beeps was something to do with the video card/display I think so the main suggestion was checking for dust which I did.

I also then replaced the VGA cable but got the same issue.

Knowing it wasn?t the TV/Monitor I thought I?ll try replacing it anyway to be sure, we have another TV exact same model in the house so tried it with both the VGA cables but same again.

A colleague in work recommended a product to me ?Asus GeForce 210 Nvidia Graphics Card (1GB DDR3, PCI Express 2.0, HDMI, DVI-I, DVI-D, DisplayPort, DirectX 11.0, OpenGL 4.2, Dust-Proof Fan)' this had a VGA and HDMI port on it so I tried both of these but still the same.

Somewhere along the line as well the computer no long... Read more

I have a computer that the hard drive is starting to make Indy 500 noises 3-4/day. Decided to purchase new HD and transfer date over to it before the other one hits the wall. Extensive amount of data is backed up on external HD using Acronis software from which I have never had to use the restore function. Presently running XP home ed. QUESTION! I have no more slots, data cables or power cables free. Can I temporarily unhook my zip drive cables and insert them into new drive just to complete this new install? If that is OK, do I Fdisk and format new drive from present drive to get NTSF before data transfer or do the drives come pre-formatted with NTSF? As to actual transfer of all data is it best to use Windows Explorer and copy all programs so I know hidden and R/O files are transferred or has anyone restored a full HD using Acronis so I know that when swapping new HD from slave to the slot where present drive resides and becomes the bootable drive, all will FLAWLESSLY work like intended and then re-hook up zip drive. Never had to replace HD with this many GB of data and # of programs before. Always threw the whole works in the dumpster because entire system needed to be upgraded. Any flowsheet of how to perform this task will be greatly appreciated. You guys have'nt let me down yet. Hoping for another smooth transition for a really common procedure I would guess. Thanks so much! Paul

I have had powerline adapters set up for quite a few months now, but only recently have started to have this problem. I have my powerline adapter set up like this, router > adapter, adapter > access point, access point > PC. All connected via CAT 6 ethernet cables, however i have noticed a considerable drop in connection speeds in the past week or so and have no idea why. The data light on the powerline adapter mainly stays orange (medium transfer speeds), occasionally flickers green and often stays red.
My questions are:
1) Can having too many things plugged in in my room affect the performance?
2) The data light tends to go green if my pc is turned off, i have checked for malware extensively, even fresh installed my machine just to be sure. I have noticed that the light goes green if i turn the monitor off, could my monitor be limiting the network?
3) Could it be a fault with my powerline adapters, IE should i spend money on some new ones and risk still having the problem?
Any suggestions are welcome, i'm not sure what to try.

Just got my second laptop (Vista O/S). I wish to transfer years of stuff from old laptop (XP) to new one.

Doing this wirelessly through wireless router is taking forever. Did a little research on cross over cable. Would this make things go faster .... I assume so.

But another thought, suppose I hooked up both to ports on my wireless router ? Would the new laptop see the old and if so would transfering go faster ?

Thanks
 

A:transfer data to new laptop

Using ethernet on both laptops will give you superior speed to Wi-Fi (unless a NIC is so old it is only 10 Mbps). There should be no measurable difference between using a crossover cable and connecting both computers to the router. Turn off the wireless on both laptops during the transfers to make sure there is no confusion.

Here is the scenario:

I have a 160GB internal Seagate hard drive that I would like to put into my Dell Dimension 2350 as an upgrade from a Maxtor 20GB drive that is currently in the Dell. I also have a freshly NTFS formatted 160GB external USB 2.0 hard drive that I will be using to make back-ups on the Seagate. I am running MS Windows XP Home Edition.

My question is:

How do get the OS and all of the other data from the Maxtor drive to the Seagate drive?

The hitches:

The case only has room for one internal hard drive according to the specs, (the specs say- for internally accessible drives: "one bay for 1-inch-high IDE hard drive"), so I think making the Seagate a slave, transferring the data, then switching the Seagate to master is out of the question. Also, with this solution, I worry about having the OS on two different drives, I've heard this isn't possible or, if it is, may be illegal.
I thought maybe I could ghost image the data to the LaCie external, then remove the Maxtor 40GB, install the Seagate 160GB, boot-up using the LaCie external then transfer the data to the newly installed Seagate internal, but I'm pretty sure my crappy model of computer won't allow me to boot from an external drive.

Any info given to help me through this situation would be greatly appreciated. I have searched the hardware forums a bit for an answer, but none of the threads seem to fit my specific situation.

Thanks in advance.

Not having the Win 7 disks is no problem as long as you have the Product Key, the 25 character code that is on a small sticker somewhere on your PC. You can download the ISO from here Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River ? My Digital Life and burn onto a DVD (not more than 4X) and use this for a clean install on your SSD. When you are happy with the install, you can insert your Product Key and active your Win 7. Use this tutorial to aid on your installation.
Clean Install Windows 7 Good luck

If you can put some programs on your SSD, you will see a big advantage in speed. This is the desired way to install SSD's.

It should be possible to image the hard drive and save the backup image to your flash drive using a tool like Macrium Reflect Free Edition. That way if your hard drive crashed, you'd have it backed up and could later restore it exactly as it was. A good tutorial on how to do it can be found here along with tutorials on doing the same thing with other tools (although Macrium Reflect seems to be the easiest method).

You'll need to hook that drive up to something in order to transfer the data. Go to Start > Progarms > Accessories and try the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard in XP.

There are cases that you can buy that will allow you to run a hard drive externally through the USB port. Some come with drives but you can buy them empty. If you got one of those, you'd also be able to use it for saving an image of your new hard drive in case it crashed.

Hey all,

Right now one of my hard drives is almost full. It's a 186 gig and I've got like 2 gigs left to use on it, lol. But then I also have a totally unused 298 gig HDD (it's already installed though). What I want to do is transfer some of my stuff, well... MOST of my stuff.... from the 186 gig to my 298 gig. But I want to do it the right way so I don't corrupt any files or anything.

Basically the biggest things are all of my games, my music (I have like 20 gigs of mp3s lol), and some other media.

The only way I can think of to move the stuff from one HDD to the other is to just sit there and drag all the stuff, folder by folder, file by file, to my 298 gig, but that just seems a little too easy. Is that not the right way to do it?

I figured there would be some kind of formal Windows XP method to do it but I wasn't sure.

Any help with this would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, folks!

BTW, yes I am using Windows XP SP2.

Zero experience on transferring data from backup. Img...cloning? What is the most user friendly way to transfer all to new laptop? Do the disk sizes create an issue? How are Windows updates affected? Nvidia drivers (different card)? What issues should I be prepared for?
Or, as a total novice in this area, should I just reinstall each app one by one?
 
Thanks

Hi,

Appreciate any advice regarding transferring data from "old" laptop to new laptop.
Both machines running Win 7 Pro.
Data is standard files, mostly MS Office files and various PDF's, JPEG's, etc.
FWIW purchased MS Office 365 Home - hoping Outlook and rest of office programs transfer smoothly.
Thanks in advance!

A:New Laptop - Data Transfer Advice Appreciated

Programs don't transfer easily, if at all. Your data should be easy to transfer via a data transfer cable or you can network the computers or you can use a USB thumb drive.

I currently use Windows Live Mail but have installed Outlook 2016 in Office 365.
I know (I think) how to transfer my messages & contacts from WLM to Outlook.

I have a new 8.1 laptop on which I will also install Outlook 2016.
Is it possible to transfer Outlook data from old to new laptop?

Or would it be easier to install both WLM + Outlook on the new laptop and just do the transfer once on there?

A:Transfer Outlook 2016 data from old to new laptop?

Have a look at these websites to help with your transfers.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/kb/980534

https://www.howto-outlook.com/howto/...efromoewlm.htm

This last one does cover Outlook Express & Windows Mail, which were Windows XP & Windows Vista email programs respectively. But is does cover Windows live Mail that is a Windows 7 email program as well.

As far as going from the old laptop to the new one this website might help, assuming of course that you have transferred WLM to Outlook on the old computer first & it is working properly.

A:Dead Laptop motherboard - How to transfer data?

Oh yes! There is a cable indeed!

This cable:

I have a good feeling my HDD is fried, but might as well ask for opinions here.

I flew over to Jordan from the USA and of course needed an adapter for my laptop, which I had brought with me. I didn't even think of checking the voltage and used it on the first day (unknowingly) with an incompatible adapter. At first the laptop would freeze and I'd get the BSOD. I downloaded BlueScreenView in safe mode and found the driver that was "causing" the problem (ntoskrnl.exe). Soon I became bluescreened even in safe mode until over the course of a few days, my laptop would not startup, not even into safe mode. Now, as of last night, when I boot up I recieve the following message:

"Check connection cable!

No bootable device-- insert boot disk!"

There was more in between but these seemed like the most important points

I went into BIOS and by HDD was the word "None". So, not even BIOS recognized a harddrive and thats when my heart sank and I eventually came to the conclusion that my bad adapter fried my HDD.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L655D-S5050 running on Windows 7 Home Premium. Before I get it serviced, I decided to post here for any other pieces of advice.

Thanks!

(I asked this in a solved thread by mistake, sorry)

Sorry to ask a stupid question but I have a problem similar to this:

http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/591544-solved-problems-backing-up-laptops-2.html

my laptop wont boot at all even though its getting power, so tech support told me its a hardware problem and i have to send it for repair.

What I want to know is do these Hard Drive adapters make it asif your laptop HD is an external memory device....like a memory stick? Does this mean I'll be able to retrive my files as it seems like i'll end up with it at factory settings after repair? Or is it really complicated?

Any help is much appreciated.

It just makes it easy to connect your small drive to the large connector inside the desktop. It will appear as a normal, internal drive that you can just copy from.

Hello

I have been suggested to keep my data in a separate drive than my operating system.

Actually, my hard drive is partitioned in two drives, c: and F:

I want to transfers my directory c:\user to f:\user. I did try to copy between them, but some files where not transferred

So what is the best way to do that. After, do I need to do special thing to make sure that all the references will be followed to the new files positions, IE when accessing them via my task manager

Hope I'm clear enough whit my soso English

Martin

A:Large Transfer of data between drive c: and drive f:

Hi Martin. I had the same problem with some of my movie files. I do not know the official answer. However, it is my experience that the size should not be greater than about 5Gb. If your files are smaller that that, you should not have problems.

Have you tried using SyncToy to the transfering?

Hi- I have an HP Pavillion running on Vista that has 16.6 gb available on the 220GB Drive.  There is also a D: data drive that has 220 GB available.  Can someone suggest the best way to clean this up.  I don't have any pictures, music  or video files on the C drive.  They are on a portable hard drive.
I am afraid to move program files for fear that they will stop working.
I do use outlook for email  and that is on the c drive.  I believe it may be one of the big file problems.
Any advice is appreciated. 

A:What to transfer to data drive to clean up C drive

If you have downloads being stored on the desktop, create a folder in D, copy such downloads into target D, the folder, then delete downloads from desktop.
If you have lots of documents, urls, pdfs, etc on the desktop, create in D desired folders, copy such stuff into designated folders, then delete such things from desktop.

I recovered a customer's data onto a USB drive. Generally speaking can they expect to copy data off that USB drive onto their new computer without any problems? Or are there things like permissions that may halt their copying process? (I haven't had any problems on my end so far)
