Hi,

 

Sorry, this is not going to work. Windows used to have software and you can buy a file transfaer cable to do that. Now, please try the following instructions:

Hi,

 

There is no software actually and the cable won't help. Return this machine and buy other machine won't change anything. 

Please try one of the following options

You can connect both computers to a LAN and then drag and drop the files.

Setting sharing of the files/folders.
