Intel Mac :: Firewire Cable For Target Disk Mode?

Feb 18, 2012

I'm using a Late 2010 27" i5 iMac and a Late 2009 15" MacBook Pro. I'm going to reformat and reinstall the iMac this weekend but need to grab all my Music/Documents (you know the drill) from it. Last time I did this, I did it over a 100mbps network, needless to say it was absolutely horribly slow. So, today I'm going to pick up a cheap-ish firewire cable and target my laptop as a disk using target disk mode. 

Which type of Firewire cable do I need to buy? It's either a 4-pin or 6-pin choice, no 9-pins available at the shop I intend to visit. I have no idea what the difference is between them - hardware is definitely not my game. Both ports look like this (taken from Apple's docs, Firewire 800):

MacBook :: No FireWire Cable For Target Disk Mode

Aug 31, 2014

I have an original MacBook1,1 running Snow Leopard 10.6.8. It will not start up, I have tried everything on this Apple web page , Mac OS X: Gray screen appears during startup, besides an erase and reinstall and I don't know what to do. It won't read the Snow Leopard update disk (My other two Macs do). When I restart In Verbose Mode, it always stops right after 'Airport: RSN handshake complete on en1'. When i started my other Mac in Verbose Mode, after 'Airport: RSN handshake complete on en1', it went straight to the login window. I called Apple support and they said that I need to perform an erase and reinstall but first I need to get an install disk for Mac OS X Tiger 10.4. and get some things off using Target Disk Mode. I do not have a FireWire cable and do not want to have to go and buy one. I have an Ethernet cable and a male - male USB cord. The two other Macs that I have are an iMac7,1 running Snow Leopard 10.6.8, and a MacBook6,1 running Mavericks 10.9.4.

Intel Mac :: Target Display Mode Does Not Work With Mini Display-Port Cable

Mar 5, 2012

I want to buy the 27" iMac - but only if I can use it as external monitor for my Lenovo laptop when working from home. A the Apple store in London they said that this is possible with a Belkin converter from hdmi to mini display port (with a USB power caple to turn it into an active signal). The laptop also has a displayport.

MacBook Pro :: 15 Inch Cases That Allow For Ethernet And Power Cable?

OS X :: Won't Work With Kernal Panic / No Safe Mode And Target Disk Mode

Jul 6, 2010

I have a 15" mbp with 10.6 Intel core duo, 4gb ram with a boot camp and ubuntu partition through parallels. The other day I was installing xcode from apple's website, which failed 3 times after downloading saying the package couldn't be expanded. I left my computer for a while and came back where i then had to log in again. it rejected my password numerous time (i'm positive it was correct). when i restarted my computer i got a kernal panic screen when the apple logo came up. it told me to restart the computer which i did. didn't work. i restarted with the osx cd to use the disk utility. when it checked the drive it found a bunch of errors, which i then tried to correct. it went for a couple minutes then told me they couldn't be fixed and i should try to back up my data and reinstall osx. i don't know how to back up my hard drive when i can't log into my account. i've tried to boot in target disk mode and copy some files that way, but the only disk the other computer sees is my windows partition- no mac partition.

i've also tried these, none of these have worked: restarting in safe mode resetting the ram and pram booting with different sticks of ram all result in a kernal panic.

my windows partition still works fine though (as much as i hate to say it) the only things I really care about on my computer are my files from school and my itunes library. is there any way i can get these files off my computer?

PowerPC :: EMac And IMac File Sharing With Ethernet Cable And Other Cable?

Oct 12, 2010

I was wondering how I could file share, or make the whole Hard Drive (HDD) accessible to another computer. The two other computers I have are a Toshiba Laptop with Ethernet and USB, and a iMac Intel with Firewire, USB, and Ethernet. Putting these to use along with:Three Ethernet Cables Now how do I get the whole HDD visible to the others computers (either/both) and be able to write to it? Also, I do not want to use CDs and have no CDs that came with the computers. I want to put Xubuntu on the eMac and Debian on the iMacs and erase the rest of the Hard Drives. The computers getting this are the iMac G3s and the eMac G4 in my Signature.

OS X :: Ethernet Cable Connecting Ethernet Port To IPhone - Feasible?

May 20, 2009

I was just wondering if any other macrumorsmembers have been in the situation where there's no wifi, no decent 3G, but ethernet ports available to use, but you don't have a computer handy? Would it be possible that you could create an ethernet cable one end, dock the other, and literally connect e.g. an iPhone into the ethernet? At my place of work, there's no signal (dodgy GPRS/flakey Edge), some wifi, but in halls of residence, you get 1 ethernet port, and you can't put a wireless router onto it. It would seem that it would be an interesting solution, if it was possible.

Mac Pro :: Target Disk Mode Will Not Mount?

Apr 27, 2008

I need some pictures from my g4 digital audio onto my macbook, so I started the power mac up in target disk mode with the firewire cable attached, and it didn't mount. I have restarted both computers, and still the disks don't show up in disk utility. Could I have a bad cable, or is something else the problem?

Mac Pro :: All FW400 Cards Allow Target Mode?

Jun 24, 2009

I was convinced that I'd find an answer to this question on the forum, but even mroogle couldn't help me. I often have to use firewire target mode with my wife's MacBook (or friends' computers), and most of them only have firewire 400 ports. My new Mac Pro only has firewire 800 ports (which I find completely insane, considering the very useful FWTDM and the near ubiquity of FW400 on Macs...). Since FW400 PCI cards are so cheap (at least those on eBay), I thought it would be easier to install such a card in my Mac Pro. But the question remains: can all FW400 cards allow the target mode?

OS X :: Migration Via Target Disk Mode?

Jul 18, 2010

I'm purchasing a new MBP and I'd like to migrate my files using target disk mode, rather than Migration Assistant. Are there any good support articles online that outline best procedures for doing this?

Transferring my documents should be pretty simple, but I just want to make sure that when I transfer my iPhoto/iTunes libraries and the like that I'm transferring the right files to reconstruct those libraries, without transferring over any old files that are unnecessary from my previous system.

MacBook Pro :: Usb 3 Target Disk Mode?

Jun 30, 2012

Is it possible to boot a macbook pro retina using an external usb3 hdd (=hdd of my previous macbook pro), and boot via target disk mode, so I can carbon copy everything to the flash memory of the new macbook ? 

In principle it sounds simple, but does anyone know if it can really happen? Can it boot from usb3 in the first place? (it's faster than usb2 and fw800 so I don't see why Apple wouldn't support it). 

It's important to find out before I go ahead and buy the new laptop.

OS X :: Target Disk Mode Not Mount Any Drives

May 12, 2007

I thought having a Macbook and a PC and keeping data sync'd between the two would be easy, or so Apple et al would have me believe. So far I've not only found out that their IP over FireWire, the only feasible way to transfer the large amounts of data I have, is seriously lacking (i.e. I haven't been able to get it to work!) but also that when I try to ease my woes by connecting the Macbook as a FireWire drive in Target Disk Mode, it fails to deliver again. The first time I connected my Macbook to my PC over FireWire in Target Disk Mode, it popped up in My Computer no bother. Alright, so the only partition I could access was my XP partition on the Macbook (thank goodness I have that or I'd be right up the creek!), but I suppose it's to be expected, what with OS X and Windows having different file systems ETCETERAH.

So I'll copy all my media files to the XP partition and then copy them to my XP PC from there, I thought. Every following time I've connected in Target Disk Mode, I've received nothing but a 'removable disk' icon in My Computer which, when clicked, asks me to 'insert media'. WTF, Apple?! So not only can I not have my OS X drive show up in Windows on my PC, but now I can't even have the XP drive show up?! I didn't change anything, I didn't do anything differently, I literally just rebooted OS X to copy the files I wanted from the Apple partition to the XP one. Sorry to come across all 'angry like', it's just not the first, second, or third problem I've encountered since 'switching'. For a company who prides itself on how its products 'just work', it's becoming an eye-opening experience. However, I understand it's probably something I've done incorrectly, rather than the fault of Apple or Microsoft. So I ask you, what am I doing wrong?

OS X :: Booting Up From A Computer In Target Disk Mode?

Jul 12, 2008

I'm just curious if it's possible to put my Mac Pro into TDM, connect it to my MacBook Pro, start it up holding option to choose a start-up disk, and use the Mac Pro's HD to boot up. I'd experiment myself, but the Mac Pro is packed at the moment, and I'd like to know if anyone knows for sure that it will or will not work before digging it out.

IMac :: Unable To Use Target Display Mode

Dec 16, 2009

So I have a Mac mini set up with Windows 7 only and then I have that connected to a 27" iMac with the miniDP cable.

At first, during installation, I have no issues; Windows is installed and drivers are done... reboot.

I start seeing artifacts, especially in dark areas (little sparkling pixels of colors--kind of like white noise except it's not everywhere and this is in color), also every few seconds the screen would flicker, and occasionally the screen would change to where the bottom of the be on top (hard to explain, but imagine a movie where the frame isn't centered and you can see the bottom of the previous frame and the top of the current one).

I figured it was an issue with the iMac, so I switched back to the iMac and there are no issues. I switch back to the Mac mini and screen is still messed up.

Software :: Unable To Boot Into Target Mode

I have an iMac G3 that I suspect has a bad hard drive and am trying to recover a few remaining files from it but cannot seem to access the hard drive no matter what I do.

I got a FireWire and am trying to start it up in target mode. It's connected to my MacBook, but when I power it on with the T key down, it starts to boot up for a few seconds but then shuts down to a black screen.

No matter whjat I do it goes back to Target Disk Mode with the padlock and opassword box.

I bought a thunderbolt cable and wish to use the iMac as an external screen for the MBP - Target Display Mode. I have connected both togther via the thunderbolt cable and used Cmd-F2, but nothing. System Information identifies the Thunderbolt ports (2 on the iMac) and nots No Devices Connected.
