Default Transfering files between WinXp and Ubuntu on VPC2004

Hiya all!

Can anyone help me please? I currently have Ubuntu Linux installed on my Windows PC using Mirco$oft Virtual PC 2004.

I want to know if there is an easy way to transfer files from Ubuntu to/from WindowsXP. The only way I can currently do it is to use floppy disks which really dont hold much data at all. Is there anyway I can use my 5gb FAT32 memory stick? I tried plugging it in but Ubuntu didnt pick it up at all..

Can anyone please help be find a quick and easy process of copying files across?

Thank you,
Jamie.

Have u got a dvd burner? 8gb or 5gb at a time should be adequate especially if you have a dvd-rw/+rw/-ram disc.

Yeah, I have, but I dont want to keep burning disks all the time for the odd file or two..

Is there anyway I can use my USB memory stick? That would be the best way for me..

You can always upload them onto megaupload.com, and then down them... How much information do you need to transfer?
