How do I load information from the CD drive to computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • My old computer died and the hard drive infromation was copied to a CD.  I bought a new computer with Vista and would like to tranfer the old computer information to the new computer.  Vista Easier Transfer seemingly only works with two computers. What do you do in the case where you have only one computer and the old computer information on a CD?

    Hi,

     

    How did you copy the hard drive information to the CD? Did you copy the entire hard drive information or only certain files to the CD?

     

    I am afraid we cannot use Windows Easy Transfer at this situation. You may need to manually copy important files from the CD to Windows Vista.
