    Can you connect it to another Mac via Firewire Target Mode, and access it via the Disk Utility on the other Mac?

    Target mode -help needed-

    I have found the fire wire cable, and need to find out how to transfer info to the dead mac, I do not have a HARD DRIVE to mount to or from when I open laptop in target mode, it only shows the software that is in the drive.

    Any help? Suggestions?
    thanks!
