Okay, so I search mroogle and everything but I can't find anything on my situation. I have a macbook with firewire, and air without it, no time machine, and I need to transfer all my data (and extremely preferably settings like itunes playlists, play counts, and ratings because I have some playlists that I cannot easily recreate and I do not want to go through and rate 5500 songs again...). I just got the macbook, but already have stuff that I want to keep on it (like a bunch of movies and things I don't have on my Air). I need to merge the date from my air, onto my new blackbook and I don't know how. Wireless transfer would take FOREVER (it's 66 gigs and on top of that my network can be a little screwy). I don't really have a backup of my air. Is it possible to like make a time machine back up on my SSD itself and transfer that via like a USB between the computers? I can do that on a hard drive I guess but not easily because it wants me to format the drive and stuff and I can't do that. Basically, what would you guys do? I need to sell this thing ASAP and I really wanna get the stuff off of it in a manner that I can keep my itunes ratings, play counts, and playlists. That's really all that matters outside of the like raw data on this computer.
