    i have a new iMac and an older MacBook...

    i wanna transfer about 70 gigs of info to the macbook...from the iMac..

    only problem is the iMac has a newer firewire port and the macbook has an older firewire port.

    transferring wirelessly through aim will take way too long....

    can i connect through the ethernet ports or maybe usb ports...?

    not sure just thinking of ideas...

    thanks...

    if by 'older' firewire you mean firewire 400 and by 'newer ' you mean firewire 800, there are conversion cables for$15 or so.
