The Belkin Easy Transfer cable facilitates the transfer of data from an older computer to a Windows 7 machine. Instead of using USB flash drives, external hard drives and optical discs to transfer the data, you can connect the two machines together with the Belkin Easy Transfer cable and send the data directly. You can pick and choose which file types need to be transferred, so that you can send as little or as much as you want.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Go to your old computer and insert the disc included with the Belkin Easy Transfer cable. This disc contains the Windows Easy Transfer software. Wait for the CD to begin the installation process. Click "Next."

    Click "Finish" once the software installation completes. Click "Start," "Accessories," "System Tools" then "Windows Easy Transfer" on both computers.

    Click "Next" past the Introduction screen on both the old and new computer.

  4. 4

    Click "An Easy Transfer cable" as your transfer method. Click "This is my old computer" on your old computer. Click "This is my new computer" on your new computer. Click "I already installed it on my old computer" when prompted about a Windows Easy Transfer installation. Click "Next" on both computers.

  5. 5

    Connect the Belkin cable to USB ports on both computers. Click "Customize" or "Advanced Options" to fine tune the items being transferred. Once you are finished customising your options, click "Transfer" to migrate your files. Click "Close" when the transfer is complete
