Hi all,

 

I recxently bought the cable and tried it today. It wont work, more specifically the disk wont load onto ANY computer, it says there isnt enough space to install. I have 42 GB  free on my C drive on my laptop.

When i put in the disk that comes with the cble, and i press Run, the Belkin screen comes up as per normal but it doesnt load. The only options at the bottom are "User Manual" and "Finish". No install button. Strange. No sound from the disk either.

So, i go into computer, open the disk, and press "mwinstal" and the following comes up "Not enough storage is available to process this command"

What can i do?

 

Im trying to transfer Films from my Windows 7 Home Edition Laptop to our family PC Windows Vista. Is this the problem?

 

Thanks in advance

According to the Belkin Website, if this is Your Cable?

http://www.belkin.com/us/F4U060-Belkin/p/P-F4U060

1. Put CD into drive of old computer
install and/or launch Windows Easy Transfer*
 
2. Put CD into drive of new computer
follow on-screen instructions
 
3. Connect Easy Transfer Cable
follow on-screen instructions to complete
transfer
 
*Microsoft’s Easy Transfer Software is included.

This Implies that the Microsoft software is used,Google showed this

Thanks for the reply.

 

It looks like the cable but is not exactly it, ill put a picture of my exact one below.

 

My problem seem to be that the disk is not installing on my old computer (laptop). Not enough space is the reason given. Odd.

 

I even tried in on the home PC which has loads of space and same problem.

If it were mine I'd use the Google link and get the Microsoft software and try it, Or get a hold of Belkin support for a link to the latest drivers.

Here is the Microsoft easy transfer application for XP/Vista: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/windows-easy-transfer

Your Windows 7 OS should already have it installed.

I didn't use the software that came with my cable. I used Microsft's that I downloaded from the link above.

Right

 

Its no good.

 

Ive downloaded the software provided with the link above to both my PC and Laptop. But when it somes down to the transfer, the laptop Windows Easy Transfer says "Windows Easy Transfer cannot connect to your other computer. You might be running an older version of Windows Easy Transfer on your other computer (im not AFAIK)

Follow the instructions on your other computer to complete the connection"

 

Im going around in circles, please help.

 

By the way, Belkin didnt bother their ass replying to my query

This does not directly answer your specific issue...but...

Are both computers connected to the Internet? Are both computers on the same local network? In other words, do both computers connect to the same router?

If yes, then you could transfer the files over the network by using folder sharing.

For that matter, you can use Windows Easy Transfer using a network connection if memory serves.

I know that the cable would probably be easier, However have You considered using an external drive?

 

I think I paid $90 for a 1Tb USB portable, and a AC powered one would have been less expensive. The portable are better for what I bought them for since all You need is the drive and the USB cable.

 

When You are done the External drive would be good for keeping backup on.

 

Good Luck

Roger

There is a version of easy transfer for XP/Visat and a version for Windows 7. The Windows 7 version should have already been included with your original OS and not needed to be downloaded. If you downloaded the XP version on top of it that could be your problem.

Since you are having problems smax013 offers a viable alternative to continuing to troubleshoot the transfer cable/software issues. Let us know which direction you wish to pursue.
