    I'm trying to transfer files from my G4 to my new Intel Mac Mini. Problem is, the Mini freezes every time I try. I've checked Apple support, and they say the firmware for the G4 needs to be updated, but the firmware is up to date. WTF? Anybody got any suggestions?

    You may just want to copy your home folder over to the new mini using firewire target disk mode (boot one of them while holding the t button)

    But he shouldnt have to, I also have a G4 Mini and am hoping to use migration assistant to move everything to the Intel Mini.

    firewire...

    I got the assistant to work, though I'm surprised at how long it's actually taking. It's been "calculating" for, seriously, about 4 hours now. I don't remember it taking this long, though perhaps it's different going from a PowerMac to Intel architecture...
