in regard to music and pictures you should be fine an mp3 is an mp3 no matter where/how same w/ mp4. Pictures will read the same too.Just out of curiosity, (this may be a lame question), is it possible to transfer from a mac hard drive (music/pics/etc) to a pc? If so, how would you do it?
"Stone age" meaning pre Mac OS X days of Apple. Circa 2000 and before. Back in those days all of what should now be a relic all the things you hear about Apple computers were actually true. Macs were incompatible with everything else and intentionally so. Their hardware WAS overpriced compared with PCs, their OS WAS clunky buggy and crashy. Back then I swore I'd never buy an Apple product for those reasons and more. This completely (if slowly) changed around 2000 or so. Now, everything 'just works' and is compatible (with caveats noted above) with other OSes but because of the complete clusterfark that was Apple before that time so damaged people's perception of Macs that we still get myths and ignorant dismissal of Macs all over the place in the mind of computer users.in regard to music and pictures you should be fine an mp3 is an mp3 no matter where/how same w/ mp4.

When I talk about using an Apple for work stuff and typing stuff or receiving files like PDFs or Word files people still live in the stone age by saying its not "compatible" and I wont be able to open it.
