  1. Best answer
    Isn't 1394 adapter Firewire ?

    Better to use the ethernet network adapters and a crossover cable.

    Check Windows, Control Panel, System, Hadware, Device Manager to make sure drivers have been installed for Network adapters.
  2. Thank you so much for your reply. I installed the crossover cable and ran the network set up. So I think now that I can't do what I want. I see the laptop in the wired network the same way I see it in the wireless network that I have. But I thought that connecting the two computers via a cable (1394 adapter or cross over cable) that I could see both computers the same way I see different externarl hard drives connected to the computer via USB port. The idea is that I want to make a backup of the laptop from the desktop using DriveClone ant this software does not see drives in the network.
  3. Have a look at Windows Files & Settings Transfer Wizard.
