Hi folks,

As the title may suggest I'm trying to get my lady's data transferred off my computer (2007 iMac) to her shiny new Macbook Pro (lucky girl!)

I've tried:

firewire 800 in target mode, in every of connecting the cable, shutting down, restart in target mode (system prefs and holding down T), both computers, the other computer etc... I think you get the idea?!!

ethernet: working (as I type) but it's SOOOO slow... 9 hours to shift 25gig???

bluetooth: works.. but slow...

I haven't tried via wireless networking as I haven't found the right instructions yet...

Ok, so my query is, what's the fastest, most surefire way to transfer large amounts of data within one's lifetime between my iMac and her Macbook Pro...

I hope this isn't covered elsewhere (I did several searches within the forums)

I also have read bad things about migration...

Any suggestions?

Many, many thanks...
