Have a spare ethernet cord?

If both comps have internet access you could use ADrive.com

Well there is only 1 internet cord and thats either hooked up to the PC or it can be hooked up to the laptop. Is there no way you can burn it as data on some program?

Why can't you connect the PC to the laptop using the ethernet cord? Then you could directly transfer the files.

You could use a proggy like Nero to burn them to a CD or DVD.

Well his PC doesnt have a DVD burner so we was goin to move them to my laptop... So I was wondering if I could just burn them as data and then transfer it to my laptop like that...

So if i just plugged a Ethernet cord between them it would work like that? You wouldnt have to jack with any kind of settings or anything?

Yup, you can burn them as a data CD and transfer them that way.

You will need to do some configuring for a direct connection between the computers. How To Set Up a Direct Cable Connection Between Two Computers in Windows XP

If his computer has a CD burner, you could use any type of CD-R or CD-RW to burn the files as "data" to.

In a nutshell you just start up Nero or Nero Express, select "Data CD" add your files and off you go.

Here's a nifty burner that's free to use: CDBurnerXP

It probably won't. CDs are 700MB, and a little less than that actually formatted/burned. If it doesn't fit, compress it with WinZip.
