Is there a way to transfer files from a mac-book to another computer?

I need to get files off of my damaged Macbook and I'm not sure how to do it. Is there a way to transfer files from my macbook to another computer? The damage is to the screen of my macbook and it is severe- you can only see the top left of screen, the rest is cracked/blacked out. Is there anything I can do?

If the MacBook has a FireWire port, hook it and the other computer up with a FireWire cable, start up the MacBook with the T key held down, and copy the files off.

    For small amount of files, a regular USB stick or drive, it's already formatted with a MBR and FAT32 most likely which works both on PC's and Mac's.
    External drives if you need more space.
    However FAT (or Fat32 or MSDOS) has a 4GB file size limit. So if your transfering files bigger than that then you need to format it exFAT on the Windows machine.
    Vista and Win 7 can do this, Windows XP one can download a free exFAT upgrade from Microsoft.
    Mac's can read/write the MBR and FAT/exFAT (10.6.5 and later) formats, it's best to format it on the Windows machine, even though the Mac can format it too, it's better to do it on Windows then take it to the Mac to confirm.
    Rack your brain here on it.

  • Is there a way to transfer music from my ipod to a new computer using itunes WITHOUT access to the old computer??

    Is there a way to transfer music already downloaded on my ipod to my new laptop, without having access to the original computer with itunes?? It is on my boyfriend's computer and we broke up - not a good option to ask him to use his I'm worried I won't get all my music back!

    I don't know if you can help me any further, but maybe you can direct me somewhere that will??
    I took your advice from above and went out and downloaded CopyTrans, paid the $20, downloaded everything - it worked beautifully!! Everything backed up and iTunes had all my songs.
    Then I guess I'm a huge idiot or just got overzealous, so I plugged in my iPhone, because I had a few purchases on there and thought I could everything in one place on iTunes. Something happened really BAD and all my songs on iTunes deleted and were replaced with the few that I had on my phone, plugged my iPod back in and somehow I must have clicked on the wrong thing and the iPod synced with the iPhone songs! I feel sick to my stomach!! Is everything gone???
    I did a "backup" in CopyTrans, but I have no idea where it was saved on my computer - when I go back into CopyTrans it acts like I need to pay again and doesn't show the backup file anywhere.
    Do you have any ideas or know where I can go for help - or is it a lost cause?

  • Is there a way to transfer music from one Apple ID to another?

    When I got my first Ipod several years ago my parents created an Apple ID, or whatever it was called back then, so I could download music.  This is where about 90% of my music was downloaded from.  When I got my Iphone 4S just over a year ago I created my own Apple ID with my own email address.  I used this ID to download more music.  I used this ID to sign in on my laptop and I downloaded some music from some CDs and other non-Itunes material.  However it will not let me sync my Iphone to this ID because it says it can only be synced to the other one and in order to sync it with the one under my email address I have to clear what is currently on my Iphone in order to sync with the small material on the Itunes library under my email address which is stupid because then I end up losing most of my music downloads.  What I am wondering is if there is a way to transfer material from my parents ID to mine so all of my stuff is in one place without having to clear my Iphone.   

    useless sabotage is right you cannot move purchases between Apple IDs.
    What you could do is to authorise your laptop with your old Apple ID
    Store > Authorise this Computer..
    Then transfer all the old purchases from your old computer to this one so they are all in the same itunes.
    Connect up your iPhone 4 to the new machine. Yes it will ask you to erase. Go ahead and erase then as all your music is on the iTunes for this machine you can resync it but still use your new Apple ID for future purchases.

  • Is there a way to transfer files from my Ipad to a Mac Mini?

    The Migration Assistant didn't work, and neither did the sharing, so I'm down to downloading files from the Ipad.  I really don't want to transfer files with a flash drive, because it would take hours

    The files got to the Ipad from my PC running itunes.  I've been using the USB cable to sync .  I wasn't able to move anything from the PC (Win 7) to the Mac Mini, so I was wondering if there was some way to sync the empty itunes on the mini with the files on the Ipad. Thanks.

  • Is there a way to transfer files from a hard drive that wont boot up?

    my hard drive wont boot up. even when i try to reinstall it says that it cant be reinstalled on the drive, is there a way to get the files off before i wipe it clean? (assuming i can even do that)

    If the MacBook has a Firewire port then you could connect it to another Mac with Firewire and use Target Disk Mode to access the drive and transfer files assuming the drive is accessible. Or if you don't have Firewire ports then you can remove the drive, install it in an external enclosure, connect it to another Mac and transfer data if the drive is accessible.
    If neither of the above are feasible then you can try using recovery software. Recovery software comes on bootable discs, but you will need an external drive to which the recovered files can be saved.
    General File Recovery
    If you stop using the drive it's possible to recover deleted files that have not been overwritten with recovery software such as Data Rescue II, File Salvage or TechTool Pro. Each of the preceding come on bootable CDs to enable usage without risk of writing more data to the hard drive.
    The longer the hard drive remains in use and data are written to it, the greater the risk your deleted files will be overwritten.
    Also visit The XLab FAQs and read the FAQ on Data Recovery.

  • Is there a way to transfer files from Ipad Air to memory card or hd?

    I know there are different lightning wire to usb or memory card devices available. I want to be able to watch movies w/o having them eat up all of the space on the Air.

    No. The Camera Connection Kit (USB and SD Card adapter) if used for import only. There is no way to save to an external device natively.

  • Is there a way to transfer files from the recent tab to the Local tab on iPad?


    The Recent section shows the recently opened files at all locations (Local, Document Cloud, and Creative Cloud).  Your files are already stored on your iPad (Local) or in the cloud (Document Cloud or Creative Cloud).
    If you would like to download your cloud files to your iPad and store them for a long period of time (semi-permanently), please take a look at my reply in the following discussion.
    How do I download cloud document to local for offline access on iPad?

  • Is there a way to transfer backups of an iPod Touch to another computer?

    I'm transferring all my iTunes stuff to my new laptop. I already have the songs and apps transferred, but I want to also transfer my backup (passwords, app data, bookmarks, etc.). Where will this backup save to, and can I restore the backup when I restore my iPod on the new computer? Also, will things like in-app purchases still work after I restore? I don't want to lose all my DLC on various apps.
    Also, I'm going to be updating from 3.something to 4.0 when I restore, if that makes a difference. I have an iPod Touch 2nd gen.
    The older computer with my iPod backup is running Windows XP. My newer one is running Windows 7.

    Welcome to the discussions,
    Make sure your new computer is authorized in iTunes. Disable autosync in itunes, connect your ipod, right click on it in the device list and choose backup.
    This will save data, pictures and settings to itunes. Passwords for Mail and Network have to be entered manually again, due to security reasons.
    See what's included in this backup here:
    Transfer your purchases the same way to copy all apps and bought media from the Store to your computer.
    Set up at least one contact and event on your computer to be able the merge your calendars and contacts after your ipod got wiped during the first sync.
    The rest of the data can be restored from the backup you made.
    Music is one way only, from the computer to your device, unless you bought the songs in itunes and transferred your purchases.
    There is 3rd party software out there, but not supported by Apple, see this thread:

  • Best way to transfer files from old Macbook Pro to new one?

    I just got a new Macbook Pro from Apple...YEEEEAAAHHHH! 
    What's the best way to transfer files from old Macbook Pro to new one?  I know Migration assistant, but is there a recommended way?  I don't want to put do a system restore or transfer everything from the old laptop, but I do want to move important things like photos, music, documents and such over.  Any suggestions on best way to do this?
    Another question, perhaps subquestion.  If I have, say, an older version of iPhoto but a newer version of one on my new Macbook Pro, will it still transfer photos no problem?
    Just looking for hints from the experts so this puppy is set up in the best way possible.

    Just one comment on this:
    ‘If I have, say, an older version of iPhoto but a newer version of one on my new Macbook Pro, will it still transfer photos no problem?’
    the problems are ALWAYS in the reverse way, when you have the newest (or a newer) version of a given app, and wish to transfer its library to an older version.
    Otherwise, see the link to Pondini.
    I have been using Martin Jahn’s iBackup, with which I have become accustomed and works fine. It also makes daily backups. Its advantage over other apps is that you may add whatever you wish to save, beside its default settings (which you may delete or cancel, of course, even if not recommended); it also has a friendly interface and easily customizable. Of course, this is a personal view, you may try other methods as well, or other backup apps. All are good if you are satisfied and correspond to your needs.
