    All--

    I recently sold my iMac after cloning the hard drive to an external hard drive. I am now using my Powerbook as my sole computer (until new Mac Pros arrive).

    Here is the challenge: I need to get the contacts in the cloned external hard drive to be usable on the Powerbook. I've searched here, and tried Address Book help to no avail. I think I need to move/change a library, but I don't know which one. Help appreciated!

    I believe you want to copy this folder

    /Users/username/Library/Application Support/AddressBook

    Thanks--I tried copying it and just dropping it on the Address Book application icon, but I get the message "No importable cards were found."

    Copy it from the external drive to the same location on your internal (while addressbook is closed)

    Probably also want to copy the following

    /Users/username/Library/Preferences/com.apple.AddressBook.plist
