I presume you mean only copying files and folders, right -- because you can't "transfer" the old XP stuff to Win7, as in migrating from one OS version to another.

 

To copy the files and folders, you need to do the following:

1) Purchase a USB-to-HDD adapter

2) Connect the old drive to your PC using this adapter

3) Open Windows Explorer and drag and drop the files and folders from the old drive to your current drive.

 

Good Luck
