    How do I get files off an OS 8.5 computer?
    A friend of mine tried to do this with his flash drive, but was told he needed a driver for this, and I believe he couldn't find one that worked. What other options can anyone suggest?

    Burn them on CD. If they're not too big, send them as attachments in emails. I think this would work as well: ethernet cable to another Mac and the old Mac mounted as an external hard drive.

    theres an option in system prefs called "target disk mode" its under startup disk it allows you to connect your mac to another computer and for it to show as a external hard drive so you can browse it and copy your files across.
