IMac :: How To Transfer Files From Macbook Pro
When I set up my new mac it offered me the ability to transfer my files from one computer to another. Silly me, I was tired, and chose not to do it at that time.

How do I get back to that screen? And, is it difficult? I have slightly more ability than basic but am not a guru. And I admit to not having done this in years, I normally just copy things on cd rom, but if there is a simple way, this would be great.

I really only want my photographs to transfer. It is easy to do my files.

I could I know download my pics from me.com but I think it would take forever as they are at full resolution.

MacBook Pro :: Best Way To Transfer Info To New Laptop?
So I have a replacement machine and wanted to know the best way to transfer info from one machine to another. I have this machine on a time machine backup, but I didn't want to just transfer everything - i had issue with the old machine, and didn't want to transfer all the junk over with the good stuff.

So what do you suggest to get all the good stuff over? What's the "best" way to set up a new machine, with all the old "good" stuff, but without bringing over all of the "bad stuff" from the old machine?

MacBook Pro :: Transfer New ITunes Library From Old Laptop To New?
The problem is that when I transferred files over from my laptop and my desktop, the itunes library the new computer picked up was my old one on the desktop. So I need to change it. I was able to sync my iphone with the correct itunes, but would like to get it onto my new laptop. Any suggestions. I heard that I need to get rid of the library that is incorrect on the new computer. What is the best way to do that and then transfer the better one? Or is there another way!

MacBook Pro :: Transfer Files To External HD -- Transfer Starts But Doesn't Complete
I have a 2011 Macbook Pro and an older (5 year old) Western Digital external hard drive. I have always used this hard drive for both mac and windows. Recently, however, whenever I go to transfer a file from the mac to the WD hard drive, the little transfer window pops up and it appears to initiate the transfer. However, it never fully starts it. It appears to "get stuck" in that initiating stage, showing zero of 3.16 gb transferred and shows an unknown transfer time. This happens no matter how long I leave it open. Again, I have used this external hard drive with my macs for the past 5 years without any problems until now. I haven't moved or modified the WD hard drive

The USB drive is by HP... and I used another drive by Ultra Speed and that one worked just fine (but I can't use it anymore because I broke it... I took it out too early and now it won't let me put any files on it?). Is there a button

Final Cut Pro :: Transfer Between Desktop And Laptop?
I'm editing a jazz concert. Two camera shoot on dv, independently recorded and edited audio 16bit 48khz. I want to work on this on both my desktop and laptop but even though I have copied the exact project folder with all related files when it comes time to reconnect the files on the laptop I am getting the warning that these clips may not match up because the files have changed etc. Any ideas as to why this is happening? It is the same project file just a different disc that all the raw media is on.

OS X Leopard :: Address Book - Transfer From IMac To Laptop?
I have an iMac running under Leopard and a Powerbook G4 lap top also running under Leopard. I wish to transfer my Address book from the iMac to the the PowerBook to replace an out-of-date file on the latter. I have connected the computers via a Firewire cable and can see the Powerbook on the screen of the IMac. However, on the iMac I cannot find the file containing the Address book data. Can anyone tell me the name of the file and where I can find it? Once both computers have the same data I understand that I can use iSync to keep them up-to-date.

MacBook Pro :: Transferring Files Over WiFi - Fails To Transfer All Files?
I'm banging my head against the wall with this problem. I have a new MBP 13", 4GB Ram, etc etc. When I transfer files across my network (or the office network), it will consistently fail to transfer a few of the files. For instance, I just tried to copy 50 photos to an SMB share on our server here at the office. The transfer window show the progress of 50 files, but when I look at the folder, there are only 48 files. Sometimes I get less, sometimes I get all 50. The same goes for my home network to an SMB share. I've confirmed this failure over N and G networks. The AP at home and the office are different models and I went as far as purchasing a new one for home since I thought it was the problem. Same results. Is there some hardware error going on here with my wifi card? Is there any way to test it? Are the SMB shares the problem?

Final Cut Pro :: Unable To Transfer When I Logging And Transfer P2 Card Files In FCP 6.0.6
I have been trying for the past two week to Log and Transfer P2 files to my external hardrive using FCP 6.0.6 unsuccessfully.

Originally I tried to Log and Transfer directly from the Panasonic HPX-170 in between my shooting. The first time it was a success but from then on I always get the same Unknown Error when attempting to transfer. When I encountered the Unknown Error during the second transfer I went on to create folders with the P2 contents on my external Hard Drive.

When I drag any of the P2 folder content on the Log and Transfer window I can see all the clips. I can successfully transfer small B-roll clips I have but any big size file (all my interviews) return an Unknown Error symbol at the end of the transfer. I believe this is probably why I didn't encounter any issues during my first time.

I tried deleting the preferences in FCP and then Logging and Transfer and it works if the systems settings are set for the Mac Pro but not for the external HD. The problem is I don't have enough space on my Mac. I have cleared 45GB of space but my P2 files total 54GB. I tried the same process with a Mac Power Book with FCP 5.1.4 and again in encounter the same problem.

The external HD is a 1TB Western Digital that I have used before with FCP for editing but never before with P2 files. Its in good working order and has 79GB free space remaining. Both the camera and the P2 cards (16GB and 4GB) are also performing as expected.

FCP 6.0.6

IMac :: Connect With Laptop With An Ethernet Or USB Cable For Fast File Transfer?
I live in a shared house and connect both my iMac and PC laptop to the internet via Wifi.

This is fine for the internet, but I'm constantly transferring large volumes of files between my laptop and iMac and it's unbearably slow. I can't connect to the router via ethernet because it's in the living room.

Can I connect my laptop and iMac up with an ethernet or USB cable for fast file transfer?

OS X :: Transfer Files From PC To MacBook Pro?
I have a basic PC with XP and I am getting a MBP 13" tomorrow.

I have an external hard drive... Can I just put the stuff onto it (only like 40gb) and then transfer it to the Mac easily?

Or is it complicated...?

I don't care about being able to use it back and forth regularly. I just want a one time transfer.
