    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...

    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...
