Moving data from an iBook to a PC
Posted on 2004-11-12
Ok, I asked this question once before but never really got the solution I need. My fault - here goes again. I need step-by-step suggestions for moving data from an iBook running Mac OS 10 to a Windows XP Pro PC. I don't need help with the connectivity aspect so much - but rather with the file format and conversion considerations and steps. I'm not a Mac guy but I am a PC and Windows networking fool.
I currently do not have a zip or Jazz drive or any other removable media - but I'll get that if I am forced to. But for starters, I'd like to hear suggestions as to how to accomplish this using only the bare networking capabilities I have now, which is to say Ethernet cables and Ethernet NICs. The iBook has what loooks like an RJ45 port and a USB port on it.
I'm thinking I can simply enable AppleTalk on the network, connect the laptop to the network, and start moving data. But it's the file formats that I'm not sure about. For example: What sort of conversion(s) need to take place to make the data accessible on the network after I've moved it off the iBook? Thanks.
