    Hey. Basically.

    I want to use my MacBook (10.4) as a Hard Drive using target disk mode.

    I am connecting it to my Mac Mini (10.5).
    It is not showing up on my desktop.
    Any reason why?

    Are you booting the MB in TDM, or just connecting the two machines?

    At the moment, my MB is on a grey screen, with a FireWire symbol bouncing.
    And a battery symbol at the bottom.

    My Mac Mini, is running normally, with no sign of a connected TDM.
