I am in the process of trying to transfer data to a new laptop. I have a Toshiba external hard drive that supposedly has a really intuitive interface. Not so much. I selected the files that I wanted to transfer, but it tells me that there were errors. I have also tried dragging and dropping the files onto the HD but it tells me I can't do that either. It tells me the file I am trying to transfer is corrupt or unreadable. Any ideas? The PC I'm trying to get the data from is running XP. FWIW, the new laptop has Windows 7.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I just want to be done with the old one already!!!
