    I need to wipe the old one clean to sell it, and of course, the ODD on the old one is broken. So, can I connect the two with a firewire and do it in Target Disk mode?

    Yes, or you can put the drive in an external enclosure and do the same thing.

    Thanks - don't have an enclosure so will go the firewire route.

    Appreciate the quick reply!
