I want to transfer my music files to another pc. I have a crossover cable and tried to use the xp file transfer wizard but the two pc's never recognized eachother. Is there another way to do this using my crossover cable? Both pc's are using XP

This is an ethernet crossover cable you are speaking about? You plug it in to the network ports on both computers?

Have the computers been networked before, that is to say is this the first time they have been connected? If so you need to use the Network Setup Wizard under Start>Accessories>Communications and make a network betweeen the two PCs.

When that is done you can just share the folder where your music is stored or allow full access to that folder so you can copy the files using Windows Explorer.

I have never used the file transfer wizard but I believe it is a utility to transfer files between PC's linked by serial or parallel cables.
