    MacBook broken , Snow leopard. But HDD is ok coz I can clone data with Data Rescue 4 successfully into disk-image.

    How can I transfer data (ex: Document , Pic , Desktop etc. ) out of this disk/image?



    How to do? Since...

    I jump disk to another Mac, it won't mount that simple , also image file not mount also. Meaning "jump HDD to another PC/MAC then drag copy" might not work.

    What kind of MacBook is it?
    Model, and year?

    You might be able to:
    1. take the back off
    2. take HDD out
    3. put HDD into USB3/SATA dock (or enclosure or use an "adapter/dongle")
    4. connect to another Mac and mount drive on desktop
    5. get data off of it that way...

    Aside:
    If the drive itself is still working, even if the old MacBook is no longer usable, you can get an external enclosure and keep using the drive...
