A Question to the Mac Buffs
« on: April 28, 2005, 05:47:27 pm »
Keep in mind that this could be the most idiotic question I've ever asked, but it's only because of my ignorance with Mac computers. Here we go...

Is it possible to connect a Mac and PC through an Ethernet cable (Or usb or firewire, whichever is easiest) so that someone could transfer all files from the Mac, to the PC? My sister wants to wipe her harddrive, and my 107GB harddrive is alot easier to store junk on than millions of CDs.

If there is a way that is totally easier, please explain it to me using a bright red crayon. I'm open to any and all solutions.

Yes, Mac should detect the computer and you can browse to it as long as your sharing the entire hard drive. From there you can copy everything over.

We connected through ethernet, and it seemed like she could detect my computer. But when she tried to access it, it asked for a password (which I never enabled).

Then the password is your XP account password.

That's the weird thing, I never set up an account password.

Did you install Windows yourself? If you did, it would ask you for an Administrator Password. Use that one./

If you dont know it, download Cain and use the cracker to brute force your admin password.
