I did the back up and plugged it into the new Mac and it's not doing anything? I am a newbie so dumb it down for me please. Much appreciated!
If you did it through TimeMachine, you should be able to open up TimeMachine and automatically restore your items.
However, it sounds like you did it manually, so you'll have to manually transfer everything back to the 'correct' location. For example; photos to iPhoto, music to iTunes etc...
If you haven't already reformatted/ erased the old mac, using Migration Assistant will make this process much more simpler.
If the OP so desires they will be able to return the 'old' MacBook and get a new one.
won't he have 15 days to return it?
I guess I should have been more specific I bought I new to me MacBook, althought I fail to see what your ass of a comment has to do with my question.
Well, there is some confusion when you say you bought a "new" mac.
New macbook pros are going to be released within the next 2 days, so people are saying just return it and wait it out. But if you bought a used macbook, not so much the case.
Just use migration assistant. Will work beautifully, but give it a few hours..
With perhaps new bugs and hardware quality control issues.
The current machines are fine for the vast majority of people and are at the end of their model run with all the kinks ironed out.
My current MacBook Pro (the one I am giving to my Dad is 3 years old and runs perfectly fine for what I do and what he will do on it).
The only thing I am really trying to transfer are my pics and iTunes library and a couple documents. New models really doesn't thrill me all that much unless it is the new Iphone. I was happy with the original iPad I had for years. I only upgraded to the new one a few weeks ago for the camera so I can FaceTime.
It's remarkable that people assume that their preferences and needs are universal. Well, not really. Pretty typical, actually.it's remarkable that someone bought a Mac today.
The two aren't mutually exclusive. You might not. That doesn't mean that other women don't.I'm a girl so I have no need for porn.
still, i see no reason not to get the latest, greatest, since we are within hours of a refresh..
