I have two eMachines both running Windows XP Home SP2 and would like to
transfer some files from one machine to another. However, after I run Files
and Settings Transfer Wizard on both computers, connect them with PC to PC
serial cable and click AUTODETECT, both machine turn off. What's wrong? How
can I transfer files from one machine to another using serial cable?

Hi Ilya,

Are you trying to run it on both computers at the same time? You should only
do it on one- not both. Be aware also that a serial connection is
exceedingly slow, and the transfer may take several hours, if not days
(depending on the amount of data to be transferred). The recipient machine
must have a shared folder on it that the sender can write to as well. For
more on using FAST, please see:
