I thought that I read somewhere that you can transfer files and connect any computers via a firewire port.
I have loads of data on my desktop PC that I need to transfer to my new powerbook 12".
The PC does not have a firewire card, but I thought that I might buy one and install the card in the PC if I can transfer it that way.
From what I understood, when 2 computers are connected via firewire (be it PC's or Mac) that the other computer would show up as a drive or folder in the desktop of the other, and you can simply transfer in that manner.
Is this true? Is it that simple?
Also along those lines....I need to get a card reader for my powerbook; should I get a USB 2.0 reader or Firewire? Which is faster? And I couldn't find any firewire card readers anyway. I found that odd.
Thanks for the help again.
