I have been given an Apple Power Mac G4. It has arrived today.

I am currently using Windows XP on a notebook.

I want to transfer my music files and my photos to my new desktop.

I have a 2GB USB flash drive.

If I was transferring between two Windows machines I would use Explorer.

How do I transfer files to my mac?

Thanks

Welcome to Mac-Forums, Lenn.

Maybe this would help: Move your files using a network. :girl:

I am now settling into the world of Mac. All my files are where I want them.

I have my photos on my 2nd hard drive.

When I open the file, all my photos are there in my folders like I want them.

When I click a thumbnail the image is loaded in Photoshop.

Is there a standard viewer like I get on XP? That is I don't want to open photos for editing, I just want to view them.

Thanks
