A real simple way of transferring files from pc to pc is through a usb file transfer cable You can pick one up from your local computer harware store They usually cost about 30-40 dollars which is about 50-60 francs in switzerland The usb file transfer cable will be extremely useful if both your pc and laptop is usb compatible If not, your second option would be to purchase a serial/parallel port file transfer cable (for older model computers) Either the serial/parallel cable or the usb file transfer cables are mandatory for the file transfer to be successful Using the wizard alone will not transfer your files If both the pc and the laptop are usb compatible, I strongly suggest you pick up the usb file transfer cables, they are faster and more effective Good Luck!!
