IPod Library tranfer RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an in home network of 2 computers (One 32 bit & one 64 bit).  Our IPod library is on the 32 bit computer.  Would like to copy it in a useable file on the 64 bit computer without losing data.  Would SyncToy be an appropriate software to accomplish this?  If yes, does SyncToy need to be on both computers?

  • To create a share, you can use windows explorer and select a folder, then right click it, and select "Sharing and security" if you are using XP or similar menu in Vista, next click "Share this folder on the network", also you will probably need to allow network user to write to this share depending on your use of sync.

     

    From one machine, if you can see another machine and its newly created share, you should be able to create a pair.

     

    You also can try to create a syncToy folder pair on the local computer across 2 local folders without using a share first to familiar yourself with the synctoy.

    Hi,

    Sync Toy is the right tool.

    No need to install SyncToy on both computers.

    and when sync data, do not play or modify any of the files under sync folders.

     

    Thanks,

    Baoke

  • Thank you.  Downloaded SyncToy.  Can't find any "How to" link folders from 2 different computers on the same network??

  • If you are running on the 32bit machine, you will need to create a share on the 64bit machine and create a foler pair to link a folder on the 32bit machine and the 64bit machine share and then sync.

  • Thank you.  I'm sorry but I am a novice & am not familiar with "How to create a share".  The other question is how to identify both computers on the network.  Ours is a wireless connection and I only "See" one computer and the modem showing up on the network.
