  1. Depends....are you transfering just data files from a secondary drive or the os drive(C) which contains the operating system?
  2. If its a WDC drive, you can use the WD version of True Image(FREE) to make he copy.

    Hell even True Image comes with a trial that will do it for you.

    I am transfering the data from my old computer's hard drive ( documents, i-tunes library, etc) not the operating system.
  4. Is it a laptop or desktop?

    If its a desktop, you can just install both drives and copy and paste that stuff.

    If its a laptop, you will be best served with a USB to IDE/SATA device like this. They are not too fast, but are very compatible .
