I have two servers, one running SharePoint 2010 and the other running SharePoint Services 3.0. I want to transfer files for my users from the old (MSS 3.0) to the new  SharePoint 2010, not the whole database using the backup facility just some photos and documents and mayby some imbedded material. How do i do this? I am reasonably new to this Portal stuff so if possible it would be most helpful to me if a step by step outline could be given.
Thanks

the easiest way to do this is to have your users open the source and target document libraries using the  Explorer view - select mutliple documents and then cut and paste just like they would in Window Explorer Its really that simple  - for files in libraries - for embedded content it really depends on how much content what you mean be embedded and what percentage of total site size you are talking about.  

If its a few snippets in content editors - then cutting and pasting will be the quickest
if it content in pages then you can copy and paste the pages much like libraries - just need to find the location of the page library
if it makes up most of the site - it would probably be easier to migrate the site and remove the stuff you don't want
