Question:

 
How can I transfer my files from my old computer to my new computer more conveniently?
 
Answer:
 
Actually, the solution to your problem is really easy. Although there are many ways to do it like using your 3.5 floppy disk drive and transferring it to a diskette if you are just transferring small files or you can use an external or an internal hard drive to transfer your files from your old computer to the new one.
 
This is much easier if you are transferring huge and a lot of files. Another easy way is by using a cd writer, copy the files in your old computer and burn it on a blank cd. After the process of burning is finished then that is the time you can transfer it to your new computer by placing the cd on the new computer's cd drive.

Did that guy just mention a Floppy disk? I hate to be rude but this is 2011 floppy disks have long been out of main stream use, most computers don’t even come with the drive any more. In any case I'd recommend using an internal DVD burner. You mentioned it was your old computer which in my mind figures to something with USB 1 while it is that an external hard drive is convenient, for moving large files from one place to the next via USB especially USB 1.0 ports could take forever honestly.

The main reason why I'd suggest a DVD as well is because of course it’s a non-volatile form of storage, I mean if you've ever had an external hard drive with thousands of items on it suddenly crash, then you'd probably feel a lot better knowing that you had it on a disk safely tucked in your bottom draw.

In any case as I mentioned before DVD is still going to be faster than trying to transfer via USB even if its 2.0 not only that heaven forbid using a floppy disk.
