Bill's simple solution, but it will cost some money. 

SD card - 256 gb                             $85 US
SD card reader - Vivitar 50-in-1      $10 US

Save or move stuff to the SD card. The reader plugs into a USB port. My old 
reader transfers are slow (200 kbps tops), but my older one was even slower. 
I just got the new reader, and have the new SD card set to pick up maybe next 
weekend. (It was to be yesterday, but I am getting too old to be schlepping 
all over the place like I used to do.) 

Music is more my thing, but here I put the real money into good 
professional-grade studio headphones; comes with different size plug-in 
jacks, so I can listen on practically any device. I listen more on my phone 
now than on computer or anything else. 256 gb holds a whole lotta music.
