Desperate

Recommended Posts

easiest way to transfer files is by networking in my opinion.

 

my network is so screwed up and i dont know if it will ever work again. i did everything i could and everything it said to do, and then i click on Start/my netork places and then try to open anything that i could b4, and now i get this error.

 

\\CHADS\SharedDocs is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

 

No network provider accepted the given path.

 

 

ok, the administrator of this computer is me. the admin of the other computer, is chad.

Chad has been deployed to war for a while now. so gettin him over here to fix this prob, isnt gonna happen anytime soon.

 

IM desperately needing advice on how to get two files from one pc to the other. the files are:

 

1. Video file - 1.28 gigabytes

2. Video file - 1.51 gigabytes

 

i CANT split these files cuz for one, i dont know how. two, i wouldnt know how to join them back together. and three, would they work properly after? four... brb, computer just screwed up again gotta just shut down, no explorer bar no icons no nothing but this window open still, brb to repost

new, you zip the files driectly to the floppy. It will prompt you to put in floppy 2 then 3 ect. not sure if xp will or not though (you may have to get winzip or pkzip). A 1.5 gig vid file will use a LOT of floppies though. if zip disks or LS120 not to bad.

i have winzip. the full version and registered. just dont know how to zip the files small enough and i dont own enough floppy disks to do that.

 

unless my calculations are wrong...

 

it would take 995 floppy disks (1.44mb) to do that.

 

i have tons of cds, anyway i can burn the file to cd at all?

Use Winzip and a CD burner. Start Winzip, click on file, new archive, select your CD burner, name the file in the file name area, click ok. The next box that opens will be the Add box. Select the drive that the files to be copied are on. Then select files, click add button. This will add them to your cd. If that cd fills up, you will be prompted to insert another cd.

If you have a spare small hdd handy, you could install it as a slave, load the files, then put it in the other pc as slave and copy it.

ok, i tried it. step by step, and word for word. didnt work. when i clicked on burn to cd, it kept saying:

 

there isnt enough free space on the cd to write all the files you have selected. remove some of the files waiting to be written to cd, and then choose one of the options below. which were retry, or close the wizard.

 

any clue how fix this to make it do what you are saying?

Can you copy the file to Win-rar. That will break it down into 15mb files. Then you can reassemble on the other machine.

Ok. Try this. Right click the file, and click the winrar icon that says add to archive. After its done, extract to a folder. Burn the winrar files to disc, and put them on the other pc. Double click the first one, and it should reassemble the file.
