External hard drive from windows to mac
Hi. I have a 160 gig that was in my xp machine, i have about 18 gig of music and 30 gig in movies. I have purchased an I-Buddie hard drive caddy (usb2) and put the drive into it.
I am trying to get the data from this drive onto my E-mac. There are a couple of challenges i face, and would like some advice on please.
1.The o/s on the drive is windows.
2.I do not know what to set the jumpers to, to make the drive be seen in either Explorer on the win machine/VPC on my e-mac. Is it slave or master?
I plan to open the drive on my e-mac using VPC and then move the media to my e-mac drive, WILL THIS WORK?
Or should i do it a better/quicker way?
This is all part of my move over to Mac. My XP machine will be used only for Business apps that will only run on windoze. And the occasional game.
