    Transfer files from G4 powermac to intel imac
    Hi, Just ordered a new 24" 2.66 imac, When it turns up i need to transfer iphoto pics & itunes music from my G4 powermac (gigabit ethernet running 10.4.11) which is wireless and has firewire 400 & the new one will have 800, What will happen when i first start up the new one & what is the best way to transfer the files?.

    Cheers

    If you have a firewire cable then use Migration Assistant

    Great tip, Thanks for that, Will i need an adaptor for the firewire cable as the G4 is firewire 400 not 800?
