I have two computers, a Dell Demension 2200 and a Acer laptop. I just found out that the dell can rip gc discs, but it cant write the iso to a disk. I ripped a game and want to transfer the file, but i dont know how. both are running winxp. i am soon getting a wireless router, if i can do anything with that.

Connect the two pc's together with two Ethernet cables, share the drives and bobs your uncle. Its that easy. Then use network places or \\computername to access them.

If you want to join two computers with ethernet, you have to use a crossover cable, otherwise it won't work. You'll have the send connection on one computer sending to the send connection of the other.

If you had some tools handy, you could rewire your ethernet cable so it's a crossover cable. All you need to do is swap wires 1&3 and 2&6 on one end only. Or you could just buy an adapter, or just buy a crossover cable.

Not true. If he has a router, which he says he is going to get, he will need standard patch cables. Crossover cables will often not work with a router.

I recommend not trying to go for the crossover cable route (eg no router) because it is so difficult to get working and to keep it working. I myself have tried numerous times and never succeeded to keep it working for longer than a few hours or after a reboot.

I have used the cross-over method multiple times, even for extended time periods, and never had a single problem. It was a piece of cake to get working. Connect the cables, set up TCP/IP and stuff, done.

I meant joining two computers directly.

If you use the Windows XP Network Setup Wizard to set up your network, if you set one computer to be the computer with the internet connection, then everything should work pretty nicely. Sometimes you need to go into cmd and type "ipconfig /release & ipconfig /renew" to renew your IP, but otherwise it doesn't work too badly.

Plus, some routers and switches do let you use crossover cables as normal cables, mine does at least.
