    Hi, I'm hoping someone will have an answer :) I have a 2007 Macbook Pro that just gave up the ghost on me. I purchased a new one and need to transfer the files from the old one.. on the old one the light under the key pad flickers, it's fully charged and I can hear the hard drive working but nothing on the screen and it won't fully power up to see anything.. is there a way to transfer these files? Thanks in advance!

    You could extract the HDD and put it into a 2.5" S-ATA HDD enclosure with USB port or you could use Target Disk Mode if you still have use for Firewire.

    If you take the HDD out of the old MacBook, you can get something like a USB3/SATA docking station and put it into that.

    To see what these are, go to and enter "usb3 sata dock" into the search box, and you'll see many choices.

    These cost only $20-25 or so, and will come in handy to have around in the future.

    Here's a $20 one that looks good:
