    I need to load my Word onto my new mac mini but have run out of install codes. I used the 3 they have so I thought I would transfer it via firewire. I promise they are all mine!

    I cant even plug it in! It is huge. The slot that looks like a radioactive warning is too small on my g5 iMac and on the mac mini.

    What am I doing wrong? I also notice I don't have a migration assistant so I am not sure how to do this. Can anyone help me???

    You should be able to use a FireWire 400 cable in between the two machines. FireWire 800 is only supported on the professional level machines.
