    How to transfer 1 GB of Music from Windows Media Player Version 8.0 To another PC with Windows XP and Windows Media Player 8.0.

    My 1st Dell Inspiron 8200 with Windows XP laptop was unrepairable after 7 months and now they sent me a new one.
    Inspiron 8500.

    Thanks for any help

    Welcome to TSG.

    If you have a CD burner find the files and break them into two CDs – Maybe 680Mb on the first and the rest on the second. Record them as Data and not audio. Put them the same place in the new computer they were in the old one.

    They sent you a new one and let you keep the old one? Are you trying to move the music from the 8200 to the 8500? Does the 8200 work?

    If you don’t have a burner you could connect the two computers with a null modem cable and transfer the data. Null modem cables are cheap and come in parallel and serial. DB25 is parallel and DB9 serial. If you have both ports available the parallel is faster. Do a search for “Briefcase” in the XP help files as it is probably the easiest way to transfer the data. http://www.cablesnmor.com/nullmodem.html
