Customer Question
Hi. I just bought...
Hi. I just bought a Mac, had always used Windows in the past. I downloaded all music, files, pictures, etc. that were on my PC onto a flash drive I bought at Best Buy. They told me I'd be able to transfer everything from my old computer onto the Mac with the flash drive. It's all on the flash drive, but I can't get the flash to open on my Mac. Can you help me?

What is the exact Model of the MAC? Do you also have an iPod?

Now, are your music and stuff all on the Flash Drive? Next, do you have some DVD's or CD's around. There is a bit of a format issue that MAC will not see the USB drive as being formatted. If you have DVD's around, just copy your Library to those disk's. Windows and the MAC use the same formats for DVD's and CD's.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
