What are you trying to transfer from XP to windows 8? If it is just files (Documents, Pictures, Music etc), then just get an external drive or just transfer them across your network via shared folders. If you are trying to transfer programs and settings, I would recommend the program PC Mover. It has the ability to transfer all your actual programs, but there may be some that wont transfer due to compatibility problems.

Gavins makes a great suggestion PC mover is an excellent program. The only question I have is do you have the actual cable for the Windows Easy Transfer program. From what I remember it requires a special cord that is used to connect the two pc's. If you don't have it you could possible get one at a local computer shop, best buy, office max, or staples. Just tossing an idea out.

David is right if you are not transferring over a network. You would require a crossover cable if you hook the two computers directly together.
