My home laptop has a CD burner running Windows XP. This system has no floppy drive. My office/car computer has a 1.44 floppy drive and is running Windows 2000. This system has no CD drive. What I need to do is get data from two CDs (a typing program and a Criminal law program in Adobe format) installed on my office system. The typing program I can live without but I really need the law e-book put on my work laptop. What is the best way to accomplish this? Can I go USB port to USB port with a cable? Or do I need to buy/borrow an external floppy drive, hook it up to the home laptop, and transfer all of that data to floppies and then load them on the work laptop? Or will a USB jump drive work? Do those require you to download software to the system or are they plug and play? My office system has administrator security on it. Plugging an optical mouse works where a digital camera does not. They don't care if I add stuff like I am wanting to the system. It is just that getting ahold of one of the IT techs around here is like passing a new law. Very time consuming. Any help/suggestions appreciated.
