    I have a mind 2010 Imac 27 inch and a new 2015 MacbookPro

    I have some work (i'm a photographer) that I shot on the Powerbook which i'd like to get onto my imac

    In the past (with other mac's) I have used USB (i think) to connect macs and press 'T' on start up from the one I'm looking to take data from-

    How do I do the same thing with these two machines. USB doesn't seem to work?
    The macbook has Thunderbolt but the imac doesn't

    Any ideas

    Probably the easiest way would be to copy what you wish to transfer to either an external USB hard drive or USB flash drive of sufficient capacity, then connect it to the MacBook Pro and "copy it back" over.

    Sometimes the "least fancy" method just works best.
