I have a quick question about hooking up two computers together to share/transfer files. I have a desktop and a notebook that I want to transfer large files from. Different options include using a Compact Flash/SD card or copying everything on to a CD (the notebook doesn't have a DVD burner). However, some of the files are over 1 GB in size, so those 2 options are not viable. I've tried WinZipping them, but it still doesn't get them small enough.
Is there anyway of hooking the 2 computers up via a USB or ethernet cable? Or do I have to set up a network? IIRC, Windows 98 had a way of doing this via a direct cable between the computers (remember the My Briefcase icon). Does Windows XP no longer have this function?
Thanks for any help or suggestions you can give!
