    Specs:
    White Macbook, 2.4ghz, 4Gb Ram, 250gb hdd
    Exclamation Ethernet Cable To Move Files
    I Just got a new macbook and external hard drive for it as i have an extensive music collection.
    At the moment everything is on my external hard drive connected to a windows laptop.
    I want to transfer everything from one external drive to the other. Someone told me i could transfer the files via an ethernet cable plugged into both laptops and just drag and drop? Is This Possible? And how would i do it if it is?

    Your macbook can see the drive even if its formatted for the PC just plug both drives in the MacBook and drag and drop.
