What files and folders do I need to copy to bring my old Address Book, iCal entries and Mail messages onto my new computer? I see a whole bunch of options on my machine, some of which have not been updated for several years. While I could just copy everything and hope for the best I was hoping that I could be a little more strategic.
I did think of using Migration Assistant but I don't think it's an option in this case. (Suggestions to the contrary welcome!) Read on for the full story.
I have an external hard disk and a shiny new MacBook Pro. The external disk used to be the main disk in an old iBook G4 before its motherboard got frazzled and is now in a USB disk enclosure. Unfortunatley the MacBook Pro does not recognise the disk. It seems to work in pretty much every other Mac just not the one I need to transfer the files to (hence Migration Assistant probably not being an option).
I am guessing that the external disk does not work because of a power issue. A solution I intend trying in parallel to asking this question is using a powered USB hub rather than connecting directly to the Mac.
