    Okay... well I got a new Macbook for Christmas and on my old PC I had some downloaded TV shows... I am trying to move them to my Macbook. I already got all my sogns on my Macbook...But as you know 25 hours of TV wont fit on a 2gb Flash drive. So what is the best PC to Mac file transfer?

    Do you have an external hard drive?
    Or do you know anybody you could borrow one from?

    You could transfer them via wireless network. It wont be really fast, but all you need is wireless internet at your home.

    Or Ethernet, if your house has the wiring or if you're near the router.

    You actually don't need a router if you only have 2 computers - you can just wire the ethernet ports together with a single wire. If the PC has gigabit ethernet transfer could be quite fast. If not, it won't be :)

    Another option would be to use an external hard drive. It's a good idea to have at least one of these anyway - for backup purposes.
