Hello... yes, I just joined in hopes to get some help. My 27" iMac's HD is in the process of or has crapped out. I am on my old Powerbook G4 now.

Here is my issue I am needing help with: I am in need of getting my pics off my iMac. I could careless about anything else, but the pics of my dog mean everything (he passed a couple months ago).

I have the two computers connected via firewire...held the "T" key on the iMac upon powering up to get it to show on my laptop... sure enough, it shows up and I have the firewire logo dancing around the screen on the iMac. When I click into the displayed HD of that computer, it shows nothing!!!! Am I doing this right?
