large data trasfer problem
 
i am in a big problem. i need to take about 5 gigs and switch it to another computer. i don't have a DVD burner and i cant have both computers on the net at the same time. i do have a CD burner but i dont feel like burning 9 cds. is thier anyway i can connect or bridge both these computers together and have sum sort of direct transfer of the info....:confused:

umm...no, there is no way to connect 2 computers together in a way that information can be transferred between them. what would be the point to do such a devilish act? ;)

there are plenty of ways. if you have a network card on both computers, just buy/borrow/make a cross-connected cable between them, configure lan and enable file sharing/ftp/ssh etc.

please ask a more detailed question or at least tell us what interfaces /operating systems you have available. then people *may* be able to help.
