comment what is the best way to send a large amount of data between two computers?
Probably because Windows auto-configures the connections with some default non-routable IP - as long as they're on the same subnet and don't assign the same one this will probably work.

Yes. But if you don't have a gigabit router the connection will be much slower.

You don't even need a crossover cable with reasonably modern hardware - the NIC will autonegotiate and perform the crossover automatically.

Unfortunately this is basically a shopping recommendation and will therefore probably be closed. The only product currently available that I know of is this one although Corsair has announced one which will be released closer to the end of 2014.

No point in buying flash memory just to transfer files - why not just connect an Ethernet cable, manually assign addresses, and copy everything over? It's probably the fastest way if both machines support gigabit (well, except a fast USB3.0 drive, I guess).

Good idea, thanks for fixing that.

No, I'm using Kubuntu Saucy on amd64. Strange - if nothing else, assuming you have all the dependencies, you can always download the package and manually install it with dpkg -i --force-architecture.

Yes, I didn't see the most recent edit. His solution will be fine for you, but mine works for any depth of subdirectories.

It doesn't recursively handle subfolders, if that's what you're asking - for that I would do something like find . -name \*.avi -type f -exec md5sum '{}' \; > hashes.md5. (At least I think that should work, I haven't tested it.) EDIT: it works.

Start the "Software and Updates" tool (or go to the repository settings in Synaptic) and check the box called "Proprietary drivers for devices (restricted)". Then run apt-get update (if the package lists don't update automatically, which they might).

Works on my machine. It is in restricted - did you enable that repository?
