My old Macbook broke some time ago. When I went to the Apple store a few months ago, and bought a new Macbook, I asked the specialist if there was a way I can see what's on my old Macbook without getting an external monitor. He said to buy a cable, which I did that would connect my old Macbook to the tv via and HDMI cable. Well, that cable never worked. I researched, went on YT and tried different solutions. Read somewhere that it could have been the Samsung TV I had, btw the TV is pretty new. I even tried using the cable with my new comp, and it didn't work, leading me to believe it was the computer. I mainly just want to be able to get my music off my old computer and transfer it to my new comp, as well as get some other stuff like pictures that are on there. Can I connect the old Mac to the new Mac, and do what I need? I'm staying somewhere else, and the TV that is here is older without HDTV, so the cord I bought won't work. What kind of cords would I need to get the job done? I figure I can buy locally or on ebay or amazon, and it would be way cheaper than that $30 cord that did nothing. Thanks in advance.
