Plug into laptop.

XP should detect new hardware and you will see the drive appear in My computer.

Drag and drop the files and or folders to the new drive. (wait until transfer is complete)

Unplug the drive and plug into the desktop.

XP should detect new hardware and you will see the drive appear in My computer.

Drag and drop the files and or folders from the new drive, to where you require on the desktop PC.

an icon will be displayed on the bottom right toolbar with - safely remove hardware - double click on this when you have completed saving files to the drive and follow the instructions which appear on the screen and you will do as it says ie safely remove hardware
