    Default Anyone knowledgable about transferring files using Firewire?

    I'm attempting to transfer some files/applications from an iMac to a MacBook Pro and having some trouble with Firewire. I'm following the directions but it's still not working. Does anyone have any tips/experience in doing this? Thanks.

    I'm using Migration Assistant and following the directions, but the firewire icon doesn't appear on my desktop computer no matter how long I hold down the T key. Instead, my computer goes into "safe" startup mode. I've checked the wire pins etc but so far, no luck. I may just end up using a USB stick, but it kind of bugs me that what is supposed to work, doesn't!

    I always Bluetooth mine across, easier, faster and don't need a special wire or dongle.

    No, I never did. I tried a couple of times before giving up. I've been busy on another project, but maybe I'll give it another shot -- it sounds so easy, but it isn't.
