I am not very IT savvy and I know that there are a lot of very IT knowledgeable members on Ozbargain so I thought to seek some help.
I need to transfer some old Sony Digital 8 tapes from tape to a electronic file.
I have the Sony Camcorder to play the tapes and the required firewire cable.
I also have a Firewire cardbus card (or PCMCIA)
Now the problem: I have an old laptop (Compaq nx6120) that has the PCMCIA slots, but the laptop has no hard drive. It used to run Windows XP, but now the hard drive is dead.
I wanted to run it from a USB drive and it works with UBUNTO, but UBUNTO does not have the drives for the Cardbus card or for the Sony Camcorder, so I really need to have Windows XP on the USB.
Is there a way to find the right files for Windows XP to copy on the USB drive and run the laptop that way?
Where to get Windows XP to copy on a USB to boot a laptop from it.
Thank you guys!
