You could network the two computers and then move the files...you could remove the hard drive from the old and attach it to the new and move the files...there are other ways but these seem the two easiest to me.

If the pictures are in My Documents...you will probably also need to take ownership of the folders there, if you move the hard drive to the new system.

Use a USB flash drive AKA: Jump drive, Thumb drive, etc.

If both will go online you could email then to yourself.

The only way I know to do a direct computer to computer transfer is with a crossover cable.

You can install the old HD in the new computer & get your pics.
I was hesitant about suggesting somebody start digging around in their new computer. :thumbsup:

The simplest way,
Remove the HD from the old unit
Turn the new 1 off & unplug it
Open it
If it has a CD drive that uses the same kind of cables simply unplug the CD drive & plug the HD in it's place temporarily
Start the unit
Open My Computer
The old HD should be listed
Double click to open it
Open Documents & Settings
Open the folder with your user name
Locate My Documents & open it
Anything you want to transfer right click & use Send to> My Documents
