Hi everyone, i am new to this forum, also just bought a macbook pro three days ago. My first question is, i put all my photos from my old pc on to disc. i want
to put them on to my mac.

I put the disc in, it shows all my files,i can see all my photos,but as soon as
i take the disc out they disappear.

How do i load them on to the mac.

Second question is it gets very hot, is this normal ?
QUOTE Thanks

First of all, welcome, and I hope you'll enjoy your new mac!

1) just drag the photos to wherever you want them to be
2)Yes, I have a Mbp and it gets very hot, as far as I know they all do

When you put the disk in, it mounts on your desktop and you can see the photos contained within. They are still on the disk, but you can see them. To keep them on your MBP, you have to copy them over from the disk to the MBP. To do this, with the disk already mounted and the pictures visible, click the Finder icon on your Dock (the blue Mac smiley face one). This will open a Finder window on your home directory. Double click the Pictures folder in your home directory to open it. This is where you should save off pictures of course.

Now, do the usual drag-n-drop routine to copy the files from the disk to your Pictures folder. If you have any volume of pictures, you will see a copy progress window while this takes place. When done, you can safely eject the disk and the pictures are now happily (and permanently) on your MBP.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
