I migrated using an external drive running Time Machine. I unplugged it from PPC and plugged it into Thunderbolt port on iMac using an adapter,with power off on both machines.
I believe I understand what you want me to do, but I need a hard copy of your instructions.
Can I link the two machines together via ethernet for this transfer ? I have cables to plug both machines into my router at same time.
I have copied what you said.
I have moved iPhoto folder within Pictures folder to trash on iMac and emptied the trash. It was about 200 GB is size. I will do the other steps you have listed.
I will give you a favorable rating now, but
If I have more problems on this issue, can I contact you again as part of my $58 payment? Can I get you, David, again ?
My concern is that it is not just the migration that is the problem. I understand why you suspect it, but I have seen reports that iPhoto versions are not compatible. I understand that iPhoto 11 does not run on the PPC, and that I already have the last version that does run on the PPC.
I saw one report that I needed to upgrade to iPhoto 9.1, and so on, but 9.1 is part of iLive 11 (confusing version numbers).
Are you confident moving the files as you suggest will work ? Thanks.
