    Hi-

    I guess the title says it all, the g3's running os 7.

    i'm trying to get some midi files from finale 98 and also some other random stuff, a few pictures, some audio files, I think that's it.

    I don't have access to a 3.5" disc drive other than the swappable one that goes with the g3....

    is there some way to network them with the ethernet or something? pre-OSX doesn't have a target disc mode or anything like that, does it?

    Thanks!

    What model G3 Powerbook do you own? I ask because some have two Firewire ports.

    If you can connect your G3 to the internet, might I suggest opening a G-Mail account and uploading some of your smaller files that way. Simply e-mail to yourself and download on your new Macbook.

    thanks for the response,

    it's the "wall street" powerbook, so no firewire ports.

    i hadn't even thought of trying to connect it to the intertubes, the last time i tried to do that it was so slow that i could barely get it to run, but if nobody has any other ideas i'll give it a try.....
