You could use HTS and then download them by going to his IP address, which you can find out with "cmd prompt>ipconfig"

That might be overcomplicating it a bit, I say flash drive/dvds.

you are missing a critical os point. his bro's computer uses vista. he should buy an easy transfer cable, and transfer all his songs via that.

Vista has absolutely nothing to do with anything. XP and Vista play nice with flash drives, dvds and cds, no need to buy a one time use cable.

you can use it like this: win 2000-> vista win XP -> vista older vista computer-> vista

And? That bears no real relevance to my point.

I don't think I'll ever find the need. I'll just send it on my network if needs be.

Not so easy for someone who doens't know what they're doing though, I had trouble setting up file sharing between vista and xp in an ad-hoc network before. I still say flash drive, it may be slower but it's simple.

It is a usb cable that plugs into 2 computers, and will transfer your documents, music, pictures, and settings.

yeah... flash drive/dvds/cds may just be simpler... but mine, on the other hand, is more complicated.

If you have access to a CD/DVD recorder and the computer has a player, that is an option also (but you may end up burning a LOT of CD or DVD's in the process).

. Great idea! If they are MP3s, you can fit a LOT of songs on a CD and gazillions on a DVD. And you have a backup when you get done.

Option B is by far the easiest, not to mention least prone to catastrophic failure, especially when dealing with different operating systems and a small lack of confidence. Copy, paste, copy, paste, repeat until complete.

You could email them but that would take a long time. Or you could use a usb drive like binary boy said.
