Backing up a windows xp computer

I have an old HP and I want to back it up to my Timecapsule.
Problem one, the old machine has no ethernet cable (killed a while ago in a lightning storm)
Wireless is slowwwwww.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

Desktop computer, buy a pci ethernet card.
Laptop computer, there are a number of alternatives.
USB to ethernet adapter.
Remove the hard disk .. easy on most PC and plug it directly into a USB holder.. plug into another computer and backup.
Remove the existing wireless card and replace with a faster version or an ethernet version if you can buy pci-e mini card.

  • HT1451 All of a sudden my entire music library (except for songs purchased) disappeared from my windows 8 computer.  When I try to re-sync my Iphone or Ipad I get a message that by syncing I will remove all the songs (~1250) from my devices.

    How the heck do I get my music back onto my windows 8 computer from my Ipad or Iphone.  All of a sudden all my  music (except for purchased songs from Apple) disappeared.  When I try to sync I get a message that if I continue all the other songs (~1250) will be removed from my devices and I will be left with the ~50 purchased songs.  There is no information on the help list on how to re-create the library using Windows 8.

  • Need Help backing up multiple iOS devices to one Windows PC computer

    So, first off, let me say that I have been scouring these forum posts as well as reading many google search results for what I am about to ask here, but I have not been able to find a definitive answer as to go about what I am trying to accomplish.
    Some background – we are using 2 iphones both using the same Apple ID.  We have no need to create separate Apple IDs as this has been working just fine for us for the past 3-4 years.  Everything from text messaging, facetime, to purchases I have setup just the way we like it and we have no issues with anything conflicting.
    So, here goes.
    I would like to use one Windows computer using the same user account on said PC to be able to backup both my iphone and my wifes iphone.
    Here is the issue I am running into.  I have used iTunes to backup my wifes iphone and all went as expected.  What I then tried to do was plug my iphone into the computer and attempt to backup my iphone but problem is, I get only the option to setup the phone as new or restore from my wifes backup, neither of which I want to do.
    So, I thought about using the trick to create another library by holding down the Shift Key while starting iTunes and then selecting Create new library.  But when I then plug in my iphone and fire up and select the newly created library to backup my iphone to, I still get only get the option to either setup as new or backup from my wifes iphone.
    Am I doing something wrong when creating this new library or is what I am trying to do not possible.
    I know I can create another user account on the PC and the backup will then work just fine as I had to do it this way for a family member because I could not get the second library option to work the way I am trying to make it work.
    In this post I created, https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6652211 I got no responses that helped me figure this out.
    So, if anyone can set me straight on how to use iTunes to backup my devices using the same PC user account with all Apple devices using the same Apple ID I would greatly appreciate it.
    Step by step would really be helpful if it is at all possible.
    - Dan

    There are experts here with far greater knowledge than I
    but here goes
    This is where windows stores the iTunes back up files
    Windows Vista and Windows 7:
    \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    So - if you cut the file and paste it elsewhere (Desktop or Documents or a flash drive) - will the iTunes be fooled into creating a second one?
    Of course you would have to label them well in case you need to retrieve them later - but I guess worth a try
    If it does not work you can always plop the prior files back to where you pinched them from
    Please let us know
    Thanks

  • HT204053 I recently replaced the hard drive on my Windows 7 computer and lost all of my music content. It should be on the iCloud, however. How can I get it back to iTunes? Can I "reverse-synch" and send it FROM my iPhone TO my computer?

    I recently replaced the hard drive on my Windows 7 computer and in the process lost all my music. I think it should be on the iCoud. Can I get it back from the iCloud to my computer? Or can I "reverse-synch" FROM my iPhone TO iTunes?

    All the music you purchased from iTunes can be re-downloaded, all the music you acquired without purchasing from iTunes can be accessed using Senuti (not free). The combination of these 2 will get your music back.

  • How can I retrieve my calendar info that was sucked from my iPad 2 after upgrading to OS V and backing up to iCloud (using Windows XP computer with Outlook)?

    How can I retrieve my calendar info that was sucked from my iPad 2 after upgrading to OS V and backing up to iCloud (using Windows XP computer with Outlook)?

    I think (and I'll double check) only the BBLink events will sync on a wired USB sync. I'm fairly certain of that.
    You'll need to use your calendar syncing via an EAS email account (outlook.com, for instance, is free) to sync wirelessly. It works great. I use it and was a former tied to the USB sync guy as well... and I thought I was gonna die a painful death without it. I found more freedom this way.
    This explains the process. But I don't think you'll get BBM Groups to sync.

    Hi, I have an iphone 4 with my itunes library on a Windows XP computer. My spouse (who has now passed away) had an itouch with an itunes library on an IMac. here is the problem, I bought an new iphone 6 and wanted to sync with my windows xp library and of course my itunes version is out of date and I need to update it...well I try and update the version and it will not update the Itunes library and when I researched it I would have to upgrade from XP to Windows 7...r they kidding me...first of all my computer is old and a pain in the *** but I have my itunes library on it.  Sp to get my phone working I sync'd it on the IMac and my spouses Itunes library has been sync'd to my iphone and I don't know how to get my library on it...After thinking about it I want to combine the libraries after all there are some purchases on each one.
    I have done some research and you have to buy a 3rd party piece of software...this is not the way I want to go...I do not think i should have to buy one and also when I do a goole search there are a ton of them out there and I am sorry i do not trust the comments as some of them do identify that they will get a kick back.
    Can someone help, i should be able to export my itunes library from my iphone 4 to the itunes library by appending/importing it...it is not rocked science on what I want to do and I cannot find out any process...
    Can someone help ?

  • I am trying to finish a book in InDesign CS2 with another person. My old XP computer became unstable and I had to get a Windows 7 computer. I was able to install CS2 on the Virtual XP Machine on my Windows 7 computer, but I cannot register or activate it.

    I am trying to finish a book in InDesign CS2 with another person. My old XP computer became unstable and I had to get a Windows 7 computer. I was able to install CS2 on the Virtual XP Machine on my Windows 7 computer, but I cannot register or activate it. Adobe no longer supports activation. Is there a way I can keep using CS2? I need to get files back and forth to my coauthor. I also have CS6. I understand that files can go form 2 to 6, but not backwards. Thanks Robert

  • 1 Apple TV 2nd Gen, Windows 7 Computer with multiple user accounts

    The issue that I am having is I have 1 Apple TV 2nd Gen and Windows 7 Computer with multiple user accounts.
    When I log onto my Windows user account, open up Itunes and turn on home sharing my Apple TV work perfect but if another family member switches to their Windows user account without logging me out, the home share shows up on Apple TV but it just says "Loading ... Library" and never loads.
    If we switch back to my user account, restart iTunes, everything is fine. Is there a way to keep my home share active in ATV2 across multiple user accounts? All of my video is under my account.

    You can home-share multiple libraries but only use one account at a time.

  • How to move iPhone 4/iTunes from Windows XP computer to Windows 7 computer?

    I need step by step instructions for moving my iPhone 4/iTunes files from a PC Windows XP computer (current version) running Outlook 2003 to a new PC Windows 7 64 bit computer running Outlook 2010.  I sync Outlook email, calendar, contacts, notes, and have iTunes music (purchased and not purchased) and photos (camera roll only).  I'm not using iCloud due to duplication of data inconsistencies.  My iPhone 4 is fully up-to-date on OS version, as is my iTunes.  My iPhone 4 is fully backed up to the current computer.  The current XP computer is the only computer that I sync with, and the new 7 computer will be the only computer I sync with post transfer.
    Thanks in advance.

    Use the Windows File Transfer Utility to move everything.

  • How can I make firefox work wisth a windows xp computer? I don't have an address bar , a backup key. I can get away from the firefox add-on screen. It is basically inoperable

    After installing the new version of Firefox on an Windows xp computer I cannot use the internet. There is no address bar for entering a URL, there's not back up arrow, I can't get away from the Firefox add-on screne.

    Make sure that you do not run Firefox in full screen mode (press F11 or Fn + F11 to toggle; Mac: command+Shift+F).
    If the menu bar is hidden then press the F10 key or hold down the Alt key to make the menu bar appear.
    Make sure that toolbars like the "Navigation Toolbar" and the "Bookmarks Toolbar" are visible: "View > Toolbars"
    *Open the Customize window via "View > Toolbars > Customize"
    *If missing items are in the toolbar palette then drag them back from the Customize window on the toolbar
    *If you do not see an item on a toolbar and in the toolbar palette then click the "Restore Default Set" button to restore the default toolbar set up

    I had my itunes library on an external drive, I now have a new Windows 7 computer. How can I access my library?

    Hello, robertfromboulder city.
    Thank you for the question.  You can direct iTunes to read your media off your external drive.  To do this, follow the instructions below.  See the section in the first article labeled Discovering and changing the iTunes Media folder location.

  • HT201302 How to transfer a photo folder from iPhone 5 to Windows XP computer?

    Hi,
    I created a folder on my iPhone, and now would like to transfer this folder to my Windows XP computer.  Is there an easy way to do this?
    Thank you for reading.
    Stefan

    When you are trying to import photos from your iPhone to the computer, it will only import photos from the Camera Roll.  
    If you created an album on the iPhone, this album won't sync over (the photos may be from the Camera Roll and those pictures will transfer over, but it won't be in the albums you created). 
    Also if you synced a photo folder to the iPhone from a computer, this will not sync over back to a computer.
    From http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083 :
    You can import only photo and video content taken with the built-in camera or captured on the device. You cannot import photo or video content synced from iTunes.
