quickest way - get a portable thumbstick/harddrive
best way - probably setting up shared folder and doing it wirelessly but could take time dependant on size of files.

thanks, i've got a portable drive. Is it just a case of copy and paste or is there a program that would help?

If its windows 7 its got a built in function to transfer everything over.

That's what my desktops were and it worked fine. It transfers everything over and puts everthing in the right place (videos, documents etc..)
