My mother has kindly donated to me a spare laptop of hers (don't ask) and it is Vista, I am trying to transfer my files from my current pc to the laptop and I can't gah gah gah.
There seems to be no way to move or copy files from the disk, although I did somehow manage to move the first disk - its painstaking because I don't have a dvd writer on my dvd so have to use the cd writer which doens't hold very much.
I have since read Vista is reknown for stalling when moving or copying files - is this true? How blimmin annoying, to not be able to do such a simple task. GRRR
Is it worth my having XP loaded onto it, or another operating programme, if so which one? I know nothing! Nothing. gah gah gah
any advice great appreciated
oh and hugs to those who also fell for April Fool blog/pranks and fronted up and admitted it in my last blog and gold stars to those smarty pants who didn't.
UPDATE - Thanks everybody for the advice, I appreciate it!
sorted the problem, someone at work lent me a 20 gb usb stick and that worked really well =) Apparently the problem is a rewritable cd needs to be 'closed' before being read by another computer - how dumb. I'm sure I will get used to Vista sigh but if I win lotto I will be buying the ultra slim apple notebook that has just come out.
