    I dropped my Macbook Air and cracked the LCD. I cannot see anything. How can I access the data/files on the MBA from my iMac. The MBA is not set up as discoverable.

    Is there a way to plug the MBA into the iMac? Can I access the files remotely from my iMac?

    Plug it into an external display (you may have to purchase a mini-DVI or mini-DisplayPort adapter).

    Can you view it over the network? if so you could view it like that.

    If you have the Ethernet adaptor you can connect it that way, also.

    Or boot into disk target mode (hold down T while starting up). Plug firewire into another computer.

    MacBook Air = No FireWire :)

    You could try using voiceover, helped me out loads when my graphics card went and the logic board needed needed replacing - keyboard shortcuts

    and then activate screen sharing with the iMac or something?
