Host to Host USB Connections

Posted: 09-06-2008, 03:17 PM
I bought a new computer and I want to transfer all my files from my old
computer. Does Windows Vista support host-to-host? As soon as I plugged my
USB cable into the computers, I was asked for a device driver. Device
drivers are a pretty standard thing, but, is host-to-host not supported at
Microsoft now?

Host to host is still supported by Windows; just not the same way it was
historically.

IIRC, the host to host cable you have should have come with an installation
disk. Have you followed the instructions for you cable? Are there updated
instructions on the manufacturers website?

The host-to-host cable I am using is older. I therefore have no packaging
for the cable (i.e. instructions)
Thank you though.
