    I have a older dell that is not working to well it willn't download all the time.I just bought a new dell and tryed to transfer from one to the other ,it looks like it is working right but after hours of trying nothing. I used the same setup last time all went well but not this time. My question is what other way can I transfer? The old computer don't have a burner any help would be most helpful. thanks splice

    What are you trying to transfer and how?

    Some common options are to create a network between the two computers or use an external USB drive.

    If both computers support external USB drives, then as mentioned in the very first reply, you can use an external USB drive.
