Hi I hope that you can help me again. I wish to download some videos that are stored on my old laptop to my new laptop. The videos are accessible through Picasa and I can see them if I login online on my newer laptop. However, at sometime my old laptop is going to stop working completely and I, would of course, like them on my newer laptop. Is there a way, via Picasa or another online option, to move them, so that they are stored on my hard drive on my newer laptop? I know I could use a memory stick but wonder if there is an online solution too? I did check on the Picasa help pages and this was the answer "It's not possible to download videos from Picasa Web Albums at this time" I know this sort of answers my own question but I wondered if someone might know a work around.

I am using Chrome Windows 7 but XP on my older laptop.

Many thanks!

Hi Apologies for asking! I have now found a way round it, using SkyDrive. A bit long winded but it works!
