OS X :: Error Messages When Transferring Data To Thumbdrive?

Jan 14, 2010

I have a new MacBookPro, 320HD, 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, with Snow Leopard. I have always put my thumb drive into a slot and transferred my data to the desktop so I can work on it. Only with my new computer does the following happen. After working on any files, I drag them back to the thumb drive. I keep getting the following message, "The Finder can't complete the operation because some data can't be read or written. (Error code -36). It will then create a new folder just like the one I'm transferring to the thumb drive, only without any files. I can then transfer single files to the new folder, but only if they aren't in a folder. So anything in a folder will not be transferred until a new folder is written on the thumb drive and then I have to transfer single files until everything has been moved over.

OS X :: Transferring Old Email Messages To New Mac

Aug 24, 2010

So right now I'm in the process of replacing my current 24" iMac with a new 27" i7 iMac. I'm trying to get everything ready to move all my old files over to the new one. The problem I'm having is I just sold my current iMac online and I need to format it and get it to its new owner before I will have my new iMac. Which I wont have until next week. So I dont think i can use the migration assistant, right? I'm thinking I just need to move everything over to an external harddrive. I've moved all of my itunes files onto it and all my photos. But I'm not sure how to get things like all my email messages that are on this computer on there. I would like to have all my email messages on my new iMac. Can anyone help me accomplish this and let me know anything else I would have to do or know during this transition?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Transferring Mail Messages With Time Machine?

Apr 25, 2012

I just replaced my old 08 Mac Book with a new MacBook. I migrated my files from the old computer using Time Machine. Everything looks ok except my mail messages didn't seem to load into Mail on the new computer. Connectivity is ok and I have been able to send a d recieve fine but the old messages aren't there. I have mail checking 2 accounts an Exchange account for work and another pop account. Even the messages on the exchange server from before the migration hae not shown up.

OS X :: Transferring Data From PC To Mac

Aug 9, 2009

I have big (8gig) ISO files on my Macbook which I want to put on my PC running Win XP which does not have a connection. So networking is out of the question. I have an external HD, but it is formatted only to work with my PC. So using an external HD is out of the question. My Macbook has got into the habit of spitting out blank discs when I put them in - something I don't have the patience to get fixed at a shop right now. (I can't be without my laptop for any extended period). So burning a disc is out of the question. I tried turning my Mac into an HD by holding the T key on boot. But I cannot attach it to my PC via firewire because my PC does not recognise firewire (for some reason, though the port is there...). So...that's out of the question. I decided to try a USB transfer cable and went on a hunt for a USB cable which did not have USB on one end and a square plug on the other. I need one with USB on BOTH ends, that looks like a firewire but is a USB. It's awfully impossible to find such a thing in great number. I found one that was incompatible with Mac/XP transfers. I tried using a 16 gig USB drive but could only transfer 4gb chunks of data at a time. So what the hell am I to do now? How do I get this data off my mac and onto my PC?

PowerPC :: Transferring Data ?

Aug 10, 2006

I've got a couple questions. My brother is selling his iBook and upgrading to a Macbook.

1) Transferring his stuff. We don't have the Macbook yet, and the person buying needs it today. We do have some pretty beefy external hard drives. What's the best way to transfer all his preferences/files/apps to the external hard drive that'll also make it easy for the Macbook to import? Note that the external can fit the entire iBook hard drive no problem, if that makes a difference.

2) Wiping his info after - I assumed a clean reinstallation of OS X is the way to wipe all his info off and make the iBook ready to change hands. Is that the right way? Is there someone else we should do to make it ready to bid farewell to?

I have already received some help from macdog about my future mac HD, but I was wondering about transfering some data from my pc. I am only wanting to transfer a couple gigs of videos, but I don't know the best way to do it. I thought about using ethernet connection to achieve this, but I am not the best with network stuff like that.

OS X :: Transferring Data Between Mac And Windows?

Nov 3, 2009

I find it very easy to transfer data between my imac and macbook. However I have a dell laptop that i use for surfing the web if my macs are doing something. I'd like to be able to transfer data between the two. I am able to pull files from my dell because it shows up in my "shared" area. Is there a way to find my mac on my windows laptop? I don't really use windows so I am unsure how to do this?

MacBook :: Transferring Data From One To Another?

May 18, 2012

I recently bought a second hand mac from ebay and it was pretty empty. There are some settings still from the previous user. 

My old mac's backlight has died and the only way to use it is to link it up to my tv. 

I have tried using the Migration assistant via WI-FI and ethernet cable and both haven't worked. 

I'm considering taking the hard drive out of the mac and using it as an external hard drive. There are a couple of programs i've tried to download but dont work and i'd really like my firefox settings back! 

I was also wondering if i was able to take the RAM from the old mac and install it in the new mac?

OS X :: Transferring Data From G4 To White IMac

Feb 1, 2009

Have purchased a used white intel core two duo imac. It's not in my possession yet.

1. Backing up before transferring data. Can I use one of those key things (don't know what they are called) that fit into usb port?
2. Once I've backed up, what is best way to connect the two computers for transferring files?
3. My understanding is that by using migration assistant, it will transfer all of those files necessary for a particular application...is this correct, and if so, will it then put those files where they should be?

OS X :: Unable To Right Click After Transferring Data From Usb?

Aug 5, 2009

About 10 minutes ago I was transferring some files from a USB stick when my Macbook just stopped responding to the click-pad. I can't right/double-click on anything! The cursor works fine and I can move it around but if I hit the clickpad, nothing happens... I can't get into anything, change anything...

I don't know what to do. I tried using the trackpad to click instead but all that does is give me a lasso tool and still can't click anything but it selects icons on my desktop. It also just selects the top bar automatically but I can't click on anything in the menu.

I thought it was my hardware but I plugged in a mouse and still nothing! I can left-click with the mouse but not right-click. I've tried rebooting and nothing changed.

It's like my right-click is constantly pressed down. But it's not physically.

Also, when I leave it alone it tries to go into the screensaver but constantly comes back out again, so it results in flashing between Flurry and my desktop.

OS X :: Transferring Time Machine Data To New MBP

Sep 9, 2009

I've just got a new MBP. I'm in the process of backing up my old laptop with time machine, so that I can transfer everything to the new computer with the migration assistant. I will have just enough space on my hard drive to do this. However the external HD is only 160 Gb and I would rather have a much bigger drive to use with time machine, and use this device to carry other files around. I don't want to lose the old backup data though. Is there any way to copy back up data onto a new time machine HD?

OS X :: Transferring Data And Applications From Old To New Machine

Jan 4, 2010

I've been using an old G4 iLamp model for years, and it's been wonderful. Today it wouldn't start up, and the repair guys told me that the power supply and logic board were shot. Doing the quick math, the cost of repair got me more than halfway to a much better machine, so I'll probably get a new iMac.

When I do, how do I get my information from the backup drive (LaCie using Quicksilver that backs up everything every night) onto the new machine? What about all of the software that is registered to the old machine serial #? Do I have to reregister it all? Is it as simple as plugging the backup drive up to the new machine and dragging and dropping literally everything on it onto the new hard drive?

MacBook Pro :: Transferring Data Between Two Macs?

Jun 24, 2012

We are transferring files from our old mac to our new and we bought a firewire cable.  But we didn't get the option and it just started to do it wirelessly, which appears to be going to take about 12 hours.  Does anyone know if you can connect the firewire cable in the middle of it transferring, or should we just wait for it to finish it wirelessly?

OS X :: Transferring Data From Time Machine To Computer?

Jan 4, 2010

I have just purchased a new MacBook Pro. My understanding is that you cannot boot from Time Machine. If I were to have a major failure what would be the best way to transfer all my data on Time Machine to the computer? I have a bootable backup on an external HD which presents me with a way to boot up and to actually transfer everything since I last updated. This seems to defeat what Time Machine is for I would think. I know I can drag and drop all the data. What if I did not have a bootable backup what would I do?

OS X :: Updating The Hard Drive Of A MBP And Transferring The Data To New HDD

May 20, 2009

I have a MBP which is about a year and a half old. I have begun to run out of space on my MBP and am considering updating the hard drive to an SSD. However, I do not want to lose my data in the process and would like everything to be the same once transferred over.I understand that changing the Hard Drive will void my warranty and I am okay with that. Here are my questions and concerns:My MBP has both OS X and windows (via Boot Camp). I would like to retain the data of both partitions exactly as is on my new hard drive. So to do that, what do I have to do? I imagine that I need a special piece of software for both OS X and Windows to clone my hard drive. What software do I need? Then after cloning the drive, what would I have to do?

MacBook Pro :: Transferring Hard Drive Data - New SSD Drives

Sep 8, 2010

I have a stock Macbook Pro 17in i5 laptop. I just got a new hard drive. I just did a time machine backup (to an external hard drive) of everything on my computer before i switch out the old drive to a new SSD OWC...Is this enough of a back up to where once i get the new SSD drive in i simply go to the time machine and it will put everything back the way i had it on the old hard drive correct? Or is there another step i need to take to make sure i transfer all of my data safely. I cant find my parallels product key nor my Microsoft word product key so i was wondering is this going to be an issue on the new hard drive? will the computer ask for the keys or since i backed everything up in time machine will it come back like normal.

MacBook Pro :: Transferring Email - Migrating Data (Stuck)

Mar 31, 2012

I have just upgraded to a new MacBook Pro from my very Old MacBook, but it was running latest version of Snow leopard. I first tried the set up assistant to transfer all my Information from Time Machine Back up to New MacBook pro. This seemed to work fine except Mail.

Mail launches says that it is transferring my e-mails (11,000+) this runs OK, then it says that I am going to be upgraded and the little box says "Migrating data", this just runs and runs and basically nothing happens and I can't run Mail.

My iCloud is configured and this is all working from the web, also it is working fine on my iPhone 4s. I have also tried creating a Test account deleting the origional transferred account (my old Computer) then instead of using the Wizard I used the Migration assistant. This has basically done the same as the above.
