My Imac 333 Died A Couple Weeks Ago. I've Taken Out The Hard Drive And Would Like To Get The Data Off It. Could I Simply Replace The Hard Drive In My 233 Imac With The One From The 333 Imac? If Not, What Should I Do.thanks.
Chamorro said:That should work, if the HD from your dead iMac was 8GB or less.
You could also temporarily disconnect your CD-ROM in the good iMac, set the HD from the dead iMac to Slave, start your good iMac, and copy from one HD to the other. Obviously, such a path would be easier on a tower.
Another suggestion: put the HD from the dead iMac in a USB enclosure. It'll be SLOW, but you won't need to open up the good iMac.
