Sharepoint 2007 data to Sharepoint 2010

I need to transfer the old file data (documents) from 2007 to 2010.  I currently have both servers running on the same network.  With 2007 we are unable to access the central administration page ("currently unavailable" is the error message).  I've done lots research on how to do this, but have not found a working solution.  I wish I could simply copy yhe old database over and access it, but of course it's not that simple.  Most say use command line, or sharepoint powershell... either way the command line I use never works... it could be that I am not putting the correct information in.  Please let me know if there is any other needed information in order to help me resolve this issue. Thanks in advance.

Do you have many differnt libraries that you need to copy the data form? Do you have the same site structure in 2007 and 2010?

I'm trying to figure out if there is any relation between the 2007 library  and the 2010 library. If all you're trying to do is copy documents in one library to another then I find copying using the Explorer view does the trick. If you have many libraries then I'll need to know how you can figure out what needs to go where.

I was able to get central administration back up and running on Sharepoint 2007.  I changed passwords in services, IIS, and in SQL.  After that Central Administration came back online, but couldn't access Sharepoint as a user.  I then went into "manage farm services" and reset passwords there as well.  Users are now able to access their data and copy it over.  Thanks for the replies everyone.
