Just bought a Belkin file transfer cable and its brilliant. Just a 2 metre USB to USB cable with a lump in the middle. Link two computers together (no drivers required for Vista or XP) and you get a screen up showing This Computer and Connected Computer and all the files. Just drag a file from one to the other and a copy is transferred. I used it to free up some space on the lappy by transferring 4 Gig to desktop, transfer took about hour and a half. Cost here is $38, about 17 quid, and no hassle with discs etc. Bloody good idea !
