so i got a new laptop with vista and want to transfer my music over from my old laptop (xp). first i attempted to use the Sony Vaio Memory Center (a program that comes with the new Vaios so you can transfer your data once for free), but it timed out. Then I tried the Vista transfer files utility, and that timed out too. I used my 1GB flash drive to transfer all my other files, but there is way too much music for me to use that.

What do you guys do when you need to transfer files?

Easiest way is netwok the PC's
Get the transfer key from Vista pc. Start the wizard on the XP machine and enter key. I would copy them ,just in case of a loss.
See the BC tutorial ,,, Using Windows Easy Transfer to transfer your data to a new computer

Next easiest
The Easy Transfer Cable in method #4 is about $30 USD.
