    After opening the Windows Migration Assistant did you then go to the Mac and open Migration Assistant?

    Need to follow the steps outlined here.
    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.

    Yes, I followed these steps exactly - my PC could not find the Mac so it was just running saying "waiting for Mac...to connect"

    I had an issue back in the day with this on Windows XP. Turns out I needed to apply a Windows service pack due to network issues. Maybe a different issue here, but maybe worth looking into? Could also be you need to enable something like the "Share files and folders using SMB" option in System Prefs > Sharing > Options. Just a thought...
    Are you moving files from Mac > Windows, or from Windows > Mac OS X?
