How do I transfer Data correctly? Which Methosd is best?

I've installed Act 2010 on both my laptop at work, a USB memory stick, and my home office computer.

 

Here's the problem. While I'm at my city office and download data to my memory stick. my laptop will recognize the data. When I take the memory stick home and plug it into my home office  desktop computer to transfer data to the main hard drive, -it won't recognize the new database at all or bring it up. The error message reads: The database could not be accessed. In order to access this databasw, check your network connection and veriy that your database is available(Already did and it was ok). It may be necessary to disable any firewall software on your computer or server.(Firewall is not interfering)..

 

Any suggestions?

What you're doing won't work. Your best choice is to setup synchronization between the two computers.
