Can files be transferred from a computer running XP to a computer running Windows 7 using only a USB cable to connect the two, or is it necessary to have some third party software and proprietary cabling? I am very open to suggestions to acomplish this file transfer accurately, completely but inexpensively. Thank you,
Jerry D.

Do you have a router to share Internet connectivity?
If so, consider networking the two and then share the folders you want
In the beginning there was the command line.

A possibly faster, easier solution...would be to temporarily removed the hard drive from System A (files to be transferred) and connect it to System B as a secondary drive.

Files transfer much faster when directly connected, IMO...if convenience/distance are concerns, then network transfers do the job.

Slowest way to transfer would be via USB.
