OK, put them on the same network (or connect them with an Ethernet cable), turn on File Sharing on both machines, connect from one machine to the other, which gets you access to the drive on the remove machine, and then drag and drop the contents of your Desktop across the link.

I bought an imac g 3350 . never had a mac before


Download your program. Make sure it is for YOUR OS. A .dmg should appear on your desktop when it is finished. Double click that. It should open a file with an application icon and a drive icon on the desktop. Open your applications folder from your hard drive, then drag the application icon to that. Eject the drive icon from the desktop by dragging it to the trash.

when booting in os x after the first boot chime immediately hold down keys <apple,option,o,f> all at the same time and allow computer to boot to open firmware once there type "reset-nvram" exactly like that but without quotation marks and press enter once it returns to command prompt type "reset-all"and press enter (you must have the "-" in between the commands) the computer should restart if not when the command prompt returns type "reboot" and hit enter ..... also you can check the drive status by going to "system profiler" in apple drop down menu--->about this mac-->more info or applications folder-->utilities folder--->system profiler then selct disk burning under hardware in the list on the left

Updating a Mac G3 Beige Desktop-worth it?


You can find detailed specs for your baby here: http://www.apple-history.com/?page=gallery&model=g3&performa=off&sort=date&order=ASC&range=

Best upgrade is to add as much RAM memory as possible.
Is it worth it? You have to decide that for yourself. I have a lime green iBook 466 MHz that I dearly love, but I don't use it any more. Replacement parts have become too expensive. You can buy a used PowerMac G4 for under $300, and a new Mac mini for $600. It's pretty hard to justify the cost of expensive old RAM chips or defunct batteries.

Can't reinstall onto mac desktop because rom is failling to open and passwod protected


If you can not acquire the password from your friend, and if your CD drive will not physically open:
First, try using a straightened paperclip - insert it gently into the hole next to the drive, and push it in firmly and then out. The CD drive should open.

If it does not, the easiest solution is to buy an external CD/DVD drive and install the Mac software with that.

What kind of Mac desktop is it, and what Mac CD did you purchase? If you bought a Leopard DVD, and the Mac desktop is old enough, it will not work.

G4 MAC LOCKING UP


After boot??? Have you tried holding down the shift key (Safeboot). If you can log into your account then check startup items in systemprefs/user accounts/startupitems

If it still crashes you need to create a new user account. Log in and if that works then copy all data from old account by using Batch Mod on old users folder. Do not copy anything from user library.
