Just got my new 24" imac yesterday and have been trying for a few hours to transfer my pc files to the new mac.
I have my pc data backed up on an 80gb iomega hard drive.
When I connect up the external drive to the iMac while it is in XP mode under Parallels, it does not see the external usb storage drive ( I checked that recognise usb is turned on in the config settings ). My understanding is that I should transfer the windows files to the shared folder in parallels desktop and i can then move them to say the itunes folder in the mac drive.
I also tried connecting the drive to the imac in normal mac OS mode and it did not see the external iomega drive ?
What is the correct way to do this ? - if I could connect the USB drive to the Mac OS would it be able to read the Windows files ( documents, iTunes library from my windows PC ) and move them to the normal Mac OS directories ?
Would appreciate any thoughts on resolving this as when I looked at the Iomega support site it indicated that the iMac should have all the drivers needed.
