    My friends Apple TV 1st Gen has photos on it that he wants moved to another computer (the original files and computer are dead) - How can I access the ATV to get the photos off of it - I'm running Mavericks so have not been ble to install atvusb-creater

    Thanks for your help - they are photos of his daughter when she was 1 - 3 years old so very precious.

    One way would be to get a 44 pin pata to usb adapter. Then pull the hard drive out of the appletv and hook it up to your mac the Media partition on your desktop and go find the photos and simply copy them to the mac.

    Thanks for this. I'm hoping to do it without taking the ATV to bits. Any suggestions whilst keeping it intact?
