    - I have a Trojan virus on my computer.
    - I cannot (given my limited knowledge) remove it.
    - I want to transfer music files from the infected computer to an external hard drive. The anti-virus program that detected the virus on my computer 'tells me' that these files are not infected.

    My question:

    What are the risks of transferring these music files to my external hard drive? I am concerned about the risk to the external hard drive itself and also to any computer that I might later transfer these files to...

    Wow, I hope I asked this question intelligently! Too long? More concise? More info? (I'm interested in the best way to phrase a question as I believe that being a good computer scientist is largely about recognizing a problem intelligently)
