Transfer data from PC to new Mac

Is there a cable I can buy to transfer my old Word documents, music files and photos from my old Gateway to my new Mac? Is it possible to do this because of the operating systems? If I can do it, do I need to download software?

    Mobile Me doesn't sound like the right solution for me, though. This is just a one time transfer. I want to keep some old files on my new computer. Is there a specific kind of cable or program that can help me do this?

  • InADarkAllie Jul 11, 2008

    Mobile Me doesn't seem like the right solution for me. I only want to transfer information one time -- from my old computer to my new one. Again, I've heard of a cable that can transfer info from computer to computer. What do I use??

Hi
You best bet is to back up the files to an external disk. Then plug this into the new Mac. The disk should show up on the desktop as an external disk. (normally in orange). Navigate to where your files are on the old drive. It is a matter of drag and drop. I would not do any of this Automatically, as suggested when you start your Mac for the first time. Take the opporunity to reorganise life and import manually what you 'really' need.

Hope that helps.

Flash drive failure


You need to format your drives. Even though you delete files on them a small amount of data remains each time. After so long the data builds up and clogs the drive.

Insert a USB with a problem
Go applications, Disk utility
open disk utility, then you should see the USB disk in the utility screen. click on then click format. It will kill all data on the USB and make it usable again.
