I am trying to put files from my Powerbook G4 (Tiger) to my new iMac (Leopard) using a 6 pin firewire cable. After connecting the cable to each machine, I start the G4 up while pushing the T key (as instructed). The G4 then displays the proper firewire icon on the screen, and the iMac now shows a new hard drive as I expected. However, I don't see the contents of the G4 in it. The G4 required a password to open the hard drive contents, but I have since deleted it. When starting the G4 since that time, it still brings up the screen as though it expects a password to be entered, however just hitting the "return" key will then allow it to proceed. Since you can't do that when the firewire cable is attached (since you start it while pushing the T key) is that the problem?
QUOTE Thanks
