Hi, can you tell me the best way of tansferring data & media files from a 2TB Western Digital Caviar (WD2001FASS) on a Power Mac G5 (June 2004) Dual 2Ghz SuperDrive 9455LL/A with one FireWire 800 port, two FireWire 400 ports (one on front); three USB 2.0 ports (one on front), two USB 1.1 ports (on keyboard); AGP 8X Pro slot with graphics card installed, including ADC connector and DVI connector; Networking Built-in 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet and 56K V.92 modem System software is Mac OSX 10.5.8 Leopard - On to a MacPro 3,1 (Early 2008) MA970LL/A “Eight Core” 2.8 with 5 (2.0) USB Ports 2 (400), 2 (800) Firewire Ports Memory 14GB, Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT, Conectivity Airport Extreme 802.11a/b/g and draft-n (n-enabled) 2x Gigabit Ethernet Optional 56K V.92 USB modem System software is Mac OSX 10.6.3 Snow Leopard which is connected to Cinema HD Display 23-inch widescreen M9178B/A Input DVI-D.
Does the Power Mac G5 need to be connected to a keyboard & mouse whilst carrying out this operation as well as it’s own separated Apple Cinema Display? What cables & adapters would i need, how would I be able to have the Power Mac G5/2TB Western Digital Caviar (WD2001FASS) be shown as an icon on the MacPro 3,1 (Early 2008) MA970LL/A “Eight Core” 2.8 connected to Cinema HD Display 23-inch widescreen M9178B/A Input DVI-D or is it easier for me to remove a 2TB Western Digital Caviar (WD2001FASS) and put in any one of Mac Pro 3,1 expansion bays? I look forward to your solution.

Kind Regards

You could do this easiest by putting the drive into a bay in the newer Mac Pro.
