    It was much easier to use this cable than use a USB Flash Drive or DVD's but I did not like how it transfers everything and puts it into one folder on your new computer. Then it is up to you to separate it. I also did not like where it only allowed you to click on "My Documents" or "My Pictures" it DID NOT allow me to go through and choose just certain pictures or certain documents it was either the entire thing or nothing. Overall, it was faster but if I had to do it again I would probably just buy 2 or 3 large USB flash drives so I could choose just the things I wanted to transfer and not the other stuff.

    The purpose of this purchase was to transfer data between a computer with a windows XP operating system and a computer with a Windows Vista operating system. After following all instructions, I found the system did not transfer the files as promised. Subsequently I found their was a problem with the Microsoft Windows Easy Transfer Program and that the process will not work. The disclaimer on the Belkin package states no refunds but will replace the unit. But a replacement will only give the same results. Since Belkin states this device specifically states it is used for this function I find that I am out $35.15 wirh apparently no recourse.

    This transfer cable works just as it is supposed to. Make sure you read the instructions first. It automatically created an alternative log-in environment. At first I thought that all the files I had chosen to be transferred, were not. Once I rebooted the new computer, I found that I had two log-in options: one to the files that were already on my computer and one to the files that i had just transferred. I'm glad I didn't pay anyone $250 to transfer my files for me.

    Did exactly everything it promised ! I am totally amazed with this product and have been telling anyone who would listen to me about it ! I had to transfer 28 gigs of info. from XP to Windows 7 and with W7 Easy Transfer and the cable for $24 - it transferred everything and I've found NO problems! It took 3 hours to transfer but was well worth the time! I cannot say enough good things about this !

    You NEED this product to transfer stuff from an old computer to a new one. This, along with the Windows tranfer program, made converting from an older XP box to a new Vista laptop a pleasure rather than a time-consuming chore. I highly recommend it.

    I tried multiple ways to make it work with no success. Ended up using a network connection to transfer the files. Belkin tips didn't help, either. Very unhappy with this product.

    Cable's Ok, Transfer software doesn't work

    I had a 32-bit XP system and bought a new 32-bit Vista system. The transfer cable sounded like a good idea. Instructions were not real clear on getting the transfer software to the XP system but it finally went OK. Then, however, the real problem started. The braindead Microsoft transfer software transfers stuff from point A on XP to point A on Vista. On XP I had all my user data on the D partition. In XP, Microsoft uses the D partition as the "Factory Image". There's not a lot of room left on the D partition plus Microsoft recomends you leave the D partition alone. The real problem is the the Microsoft software does not allow you to change locations on the target systems when you use the cable transfer. I believe the other transfer methods do allow the change of location. Don't shoot the cable, go to the source of the problem!

    This "EASY" transfer cable must have been named as a cruel, sick, joke. I have an easy time with technical items, I even have a computer programming background BUT I was unable to get this to work, had to install software THEN download a fix from the vendor,... and then even with that was a major PIA and never worked as intended. Belkin is selling this product with KNOWN ISSUES. I worked on it for HOURS and still could not get this to work as it is advertised still do not have email data from old PC transfered to new one. Save your money and do a manual transfer. I was able to manually transfer files in 1 hour (I have many). But it took me far longer to try to get this cable to work. I never did. This is a Belkin product with 3rd part software (not a Dell product - love my Dell).

    This product was very easy to use. Transferred all of the data that I needed without any problems. I had talked to my ISP to help me transfer my emails before I found out about this product. My ISP referred me to a company that wanted $99 just to transfer the emails. The Belkin easy transfer cabels transferred everything for $40.
