    Question Getting the "stuff" off my harddrive...
    I have an iMac G5 that I've had for two years and a few months ago, the logic board completely failed. How do I get the contents of that drive onto another computer? I was told by one company that they could do it for 90-160$. Also, possibly converting to an external HDD?
    Thanks in advance.

    Texas, where else?
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    Buy an external USB enclosure to plop the drive in for $20-$50.

    Look on newegg at enclosures - they've got half a ton of them.
    Need to make sure whether your drive is IDE or SATA and match the enclosure to it.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
