I have a new Mac mini, and am using Migration Assistant to transfer my files over from my white MacBook. I'm using a Firewire 400 to 800 cable for the transfer. When I started the transfer this afternoon, (about 6 hours ago) everything seemed fine, and for most ofthe day things seemed to have been working. However, it appears to have stalled a bit. It was stuck at 1 hour, 6 minutes remaining for about 45 minutes. Then, it mved up to 1 hour, 8 minutes remaining, and stayed there for at least another hour. Now it's gone and moved up to 1 hour, 10 minutes remaining, and has been stuck on that for about an hour as well. Is this normal? I have about 380 gigabytes to transfer, so I knew it wouldn't be quick, but this weird time estimate is bothering me..
