so i've made the switch to mac with a swell 17" mbp. my old toshiba laptop was up to it's neck in viruses/malware/spyware/etc. and that's half the reason for the switch. anyway, i've been mad paranoid about hooking up my external hd/ipod from my old laptop to my macbook in case it gets infected. yeah, i know, macs are meant to be immune to this sorta stuff, but i can't help but feel it'd be stupid to hook up things i know are infected. plus, i would like to run bootcamp on my mb one day - if that means anything (i've heard viruses can lay dormant and infiltrate whilst windows is in action..). what's a guy to do? try and clean out my old laptop and it's peripherals before i do data transfer? (easier said than done, i'm sure.) it's mad annoying not being able to get my files! many thanks.
