Needed to transfer data from my PC running Windows XP Professional to my laptop running Windows 7. Set up the program on each computer, rebooted the systems and hooked it up. Worked flawlessly and quickly. It did just what I hoped it would.

I'm trying to transfer data from my W7 laptop to my brand new HP W8.1 laptop, should be a breeze. 1) I'm a geek. This stuff is intuitive for me.. 2) The packaging says this product doesn't work for 64bit to 64bit transfers. That would be unfortunate. I'm going to pretend I didn't read that. 3) The windows Easy Transfer program is already loaded on both machines. I follow the instructions, step by step (such that they are,, including those on the Belkin site) and the W7 machine hangs trying to connect to the W8 machine. The W8 machine asks for an easy transfer file, as if a file was built to be transferred FROM the W8 machine. 4) Here is the kicker. This part# shows it is for W8. Another part# F5U279 shows it is for W7. (per Belkin website) NO explanation as to which is the TO or FROM. This cable was suggested with my purchase, so I went with it, not even looking for another part#. For now - no data transfer. Not a tragedy.. I misunderstood anyway - I thought that the cable would help transfer programs - there used to be such a cable/program for XP to 2000. I don't have that much data on the old laptop now, but I DO have favorites, setup, etc that I'd like to NOT have to setup again!! So tomorrow will tell when I call Belkin and get some assistance. I'll either update my review or leave another, if possible.

This product is HORRID !

By Frustrated

Comments about Belkin Windows 8 Data Transfer Cable:

I expected a lot more from a product with the Belkin name. I could NEVER get this to work despite trying multiple times. I tried every instruction included with the product and other suggestions from on-line forums and never got it to work. I would say "save your money" and do not buy this cable.

PS. if you ever see this review, you should also know that the review process is horrid also. I would actually click on NO STARS but the process requires at least 1 star. So the rating of this product appears higher than it actually is.

it performed better than I expected.

By Eric L.

Comments about Belkin Windows 8 Data Transfer Cable:

At the advice/recommendation of a sales associate at Staples I purchased the transfer cable. The savings gleaned by doing the project myself far exceed what I would have had to pay out to a computer service center to transfer my files and programs into the new lap top computer from Staples earlier that month. I had paid so called computer gurus and experts to do the transferring and not a one of them completed the job to my satisfaction. I am a published author and fulltime writer; it is imperative that all my files be backed up and within my reach at all times. The salesman at Staples proved once again to me, that if one wants something done, it pays to do it themselves. The assistance he provided proved invaluable.

Confusing & Didn't Work

This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Belkin Windows 8 Data Transfer Cable:

I hooked this between a Vista system and a new 8.1 system following the limited instructions in the folder. The green bar on the device moved back and forth and a pop up said "Establishing Communication". That's all that ever happened no matter how long I waited. Went to the Belkin web site and tried everything I could find there, same results. Total waste of the $$ spent.

Comments about Belkin Windows 8 Data Transfer Cable:

I bought this cable to transfer files between my Windows 7 computer and my new Windows 8.1 computer. Fortunately, I read the tiny print on the back of the box. It does NOT support 64 bit to 32 bit nor 64 bit to 64 bit. Both of my machines are 64 bit. Cable is being returned. It may work well otherwise.
