How do transfer pics?
Posted December 14, 2011 - 07:34 PM
My old one has vista, and about 2500 pictures, set up in folders.
I have a 8GB memory stick.
Is there a way to transfer the pics and the folders, so I don't have to
sort them all out?

How big is the file?
I just noticed, that when I loaded the pics on to the memery stick, it did take the folders with.
But, when I tried to take them off the stick, Win7 didn't take the folders.??

If you happen to have a transfer USB, that would be easiest... But DO NOT use a regular USB. It will burn our a pwr supply somewhere. The transfer USB cables have a module in them that keeps the power separate. (you might find one at a Staples or Radio shack)
The other way to do it is with a cross-over cat5 ethernet cable. (you probably would have to order this)
If you have a wireless router, lots of them have multiple Ethernet ports on them, you could hook both computers to it and set up a home network. From what I understand, you should set up the Win 7 machine first, then the older one, using the disc you just made on the win 7 machine.

When you put a memory stick or otherwise in a Win 7 machine it will pop up the wizard if it finds photos, just browse it instead and then copy and paste like you did.
However, when you put in a memory card from a camera this is quite handy, you can set it to copy all the pictures off the card into dated folders, then have it erase the card, and its ready to go back into the camera in one click!
