    Ok thank you so much, as i have been trying to look for something on this, i was hoping that all my programmes that are already installed such as final fraft etc and my pxelmator and storiyist and other software i could just go into my hard drive then pull the files striaght over, and put them onto the mac hard drive without having to go and look for all the installations disks and just spend hours reinstalling what is already on my old hard drive.
    thanks again mate
