Trying to get old music files from old tower computer with out monitor transfered to my laptop. Tried to use cable cord that you would use to hook up computer to tv and screen just got smaller. Can't find tower on my laptop??????
You need what is called a crossover cable. It will plug into both computer's network jacks and you should be able to move the information over. You may want to look into a data transfer program that supports that connection.
There is more information on how to do it found here:http://www.ehow.com/how_7236165_transfer-data-crossover-cable.html
