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.

My current notebook is almost two years old, runs moutian lion and has my very important paper on it. Will i be able to take the hard drive out of that one and put it in my new laptop?

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!

Recently purchased a MacBook Pro. Want to know how I can copy/transfer my iTunes library from my "old" laptop (not apple product) to my new MacBook Pro?

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

I'm trying to do it with a USB drive. Well, I plug in the drive and nothing happens. Usually when I plug something in my Mac will recognize it and it will open up. So what do I do? 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 buttonView 8 Replies View Related
I have an iMac but want to send files wirelessly to my Windows based laptop (Windows 7 Ultimate).†Not complex files but folders containing documents etc... we share the same wifi network but I haven't got a clue.View 3 Replies View Related
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?View 2 Replies View Related

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?

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.
I am upgrading the HD on my UMBP to a 500 gig Scorpio Blue , and putting the original one in the case which is USB only, NO firewire only USB.

I am trying to get data from my 1995 Performa 630 to my recently delivered MacBook Pro.¬† All suggestions gratefully received.¬†
Also, are ClarisWorks files instantly readable by modern office software, or do I need to save in RTF or some other format, first, on the older machine?
Performa 630, Mac OS 8.6 or Earlier
Will they do it for me at my local Apple Store?
Just bought a new MacBook Pro. Tried using Data Migration Assistant. It was wanting to transfer data using my wireless network with an estimated time to complete of 40 hours. Would I be able to accomplish this faster using Thunderbolt?View 1 Replies View Related
I am trying to transfer files from my white Macbook to my new refurb 2.8 Imac. I am using firewire 6 pin to connect. Then using migration assistant, but transfer always freezes about 1/3 of the way. I've tried moving just my photos no apps but same thing happens. Only way to unfreeze is turn laptop off then I get improper device removal. Am I doing something wrong? Also wondering what is all this stuff in my document folder? 10,000 items, lots of pics, icons and html sheets. Any idea what all that is? Can it safely be deleted?View 3 Replies View Related

So it seems that after a few months our computers, yes even our macs, slow down a bit. I just purchased a new macbook pro and am wondering on the best route to take as I transfer files from my old macbook to the new pro. I've read about doing it from a TimeMachine backup as well as just using the migration assistant. But, will moving my files slow down my new computer and make it act like an "old computer" since it will have basically all of the old files?View 17 Replies View Related
I am trying to transfer some files from my mac book to a pc on the same wireless network. I've made a folder on the PC and shared it, opened read and write privileges and everything.
My macbook pro sees this folder but for some reason can't see any of the files in it, and apparently can't put any files larger than a few kb in it. I've been trying to transfer some larger files, 7 gb, to the shared folder... which is on a drive with 422 gb of free space... it will start transferring the file and it will tell me "est time about an hour" then an hour later it will give me an error, saying the disk is full and cancel everything its just been trying to do for the last hour.
Is there some size limit to how much the macbook pro will let you transfer? What is the deal here? clearly the disk ISN'T full... 7 gb is not greater than 422 gb... I am very confused also to why I can't see any of the files that in the shared folder. Does anyone know what the problem is here?
I am going to get an MBP 17" in 1 month time (first Mac) and I would like to get an external hard drive for backup & media storage.
My media files are on a desktop PC and, as I am also about to move to a different country, it would be ideal for me to do the following:
1) get the external drive and transfer files from PC to the drive now
2) take it with me and connect it to MBP when I get the Mac
As mentioned, I have never owned a Mac and all the stuff I find on the internet relates to transferring files from PC to Mac. Is it possible to transfer those files to the Mac drive "in absence" of the MBP?
How do I transfer files from one computer to another without using cables?
