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.

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.
