    My neighbor called me over the other day and asked if it was possible to connect her VERY old HP desktop to her new 20" iMac and copy over files, contacts, and just other stuff. There was not a firewire input on the back of the HP but when I tried USB nothing happened and since it was wirelessly connected to the internet I tried connecting the computers through that. But yet again nothing happened. Nothing worked but I told her I could figure something out, whether it was just burning to CD or put on big external hard drive and transfering over or something.

    What would be the best thing to do?

    Since nothing was ever going to happen connecting to USB, try a direct Ethernet line.
