    I have backup DVD that contains data and pictures that I would like to transfer into a new computer. What steps should I take. I have W7 and use Mozilla Firefox or IE. I have never worked with a hard drive and don't want to screw it up.
    Can't find any info using Google. Can anyone give me detailed instruction? Many thanks...

    Put the DVD in the drive, open it, and copy the files to your hard drive. It's just files. Drag and drop.
