Hard drive copying

vbimport

#1

I have installed a new hard drive on my laptop and I want to transfer the old drive contents from the old drive ( still working but not installed ) to the new drive. I have a hp dvd burner with Nero software package. Using Nero Backitup software I have copied the data to 4 dvds successfully. When I go the reinstall the data it uses DOS program nrestore.exe and I can get it to start loading but it dies during the first disk. I have xp and I think that as the data loads it wipes out xp and the command interface. Can anyone give me some guidance or a better software or method to use?

Thanks

There are several you can try, one of them being Norton Ghost.

this is an excellent application for an external hdd enclosure. Does your laptop have usb or firewire ports?
