    I had to create a new XP system (Reimage totally messed up my system where it crashes several times a day).

    I can't figure out how to get the data (calendar, contacts, etc.) from my old Outlook-2003 to my new Outlook-2007.

    BTW, my data is on a USB drive, It's easy to back-up and transport to my other computer.

    Presumably you were using Outlook for POP and IMAP mail, not an Exchange Server account. In that case, you should be able to find one or more .pst files that contains your Outlook data. For example, outlook.pst and archive.pst. You can copy these to a convenient location on your hard drive, and then open them as additional data files and drag and drop the information into your new folders. Or you can use import, or you can try to swap in your old file for the new blank one. If you search here, you can find specific tips for each approach.
