Hello I’m hoping someone could help me? I’m an untechnical person in a technical world! I need to find a way to get files off my Mac book pro before it dies completely – here is some background that will be useful to help answer this. MacOS Sierra 10.12.1 Macbook Pro (15inch, Mid 2010) Processor - 2.66 Ghz Intel Core i7 Memory - 8GB 1067 Mhz DDR3 Graphics - Intel HD Graphics 288M I have had repairs done to it including a new battery and more memory, but still having problems and I don’t believe it’s worth continuing to put money into it. The two usb ports no longer work. This model incorporates the usb with the motherboard, and cannot be replaced separately. There are 400GB of data used: too much for the cloud. Apparently you can attach an external hard drive to my modem and put files on there, however after trying that and failing I was told by Belong that this modem is not compatible with Mac (Sagemcom F@st 4315) I understand I could buy a different modem that would support it to enable transfer – but I don’t know if I can get one that is suitable for the NBN (which I have here) and also fine for ADSL (I’m moving interstate in 6 months, so I might not have NBN) and both compatible with Mac and Windows (I’m thinking I might not get a mac as my next computer.) In addition, for this same reason, I don’t want to buy an Apple specific wireless hard drive. Then I’ve looked at the various Ports, thinking there may be a connector I could buy to plug into the Firewire port or card slot that would have an end on it that could be plugged into my external hard drive for manual transfer of files. (I used to use Time machine back up until my usb ports failed.) I looked online and couldn’t seem to find anything – but I’m not particularly technically savvy. So I guess my question is does anyone know if such a connector exists, what it’s called and where I might be able to get one online?
