    Default I have a question about my mac
    If I bought another mac could I copy all the data on my first mac and put it on the new one?
    Because I have a lot of stuff on my mac that that I would hate to have to get it all again
    Like I could copy photoshop to the other mac
    I really don't want to pay like another $900 or however much it cost
    I'm not sure if this is in the right section but I couldn't find a good section for this

    Default Firewire
    Just get a fire wire 800 to 400 cable and boot it up holding down "T".
    I think you can also use a ethernet cable.

    you could also copy it to a disk or even use your wifi after connecting the two machines in System Preferences/Sharing

    Have you ever tried this?
    If so is it easy
    I can't do the disk thing
    Every time I put a blank disk in my computer it spits it out

    Try a different blank disk. disks are cheap and sometimes you get a bad one.
    connecting through wifi is easy, but a little slow.

    So
    I could transfer every app and folder that I have on my account (Me and my dad have separate accounts) to another mac
    I'm sorry guys
    But I might get one for my birthday (a macbook) and I just didn't want to go through installing everything again

    should be no problem.
    I got a new computer last year and forgot to copy photoshop and a bunch of other apps. Then I remembered 8 months later that I had my time machine running on that old computer, so I plugged it into my new one and restored photoshop and all other apps, mail boxes, website back ups. having no problems with them.

    What if I don't have a time machine?

    no worries, its just a disk. my point was you can copy it from one machine to another. its your app your not stealing it or selling it, just upgrading computers.

    Ok
    Thanks
    You really helped
    So I think I'm gonna go with the wifi transfer thing
    But I won't have to do the serial code thing again?
    Because I lost them
    :P

    well now you might, but you could contact adobe and tell them your moving the app form one machine to another (not making a copy) and need the code or google it to find one

    i just upgraded my mac and firewire will transfer it fast and it will keep everything the same as it was on your old mac.

    You could also use the Migration Assistant, located in the Utilities folder. This is a built-in app to do exactly what you want to do between two Mac computers.
    The program will take you through the process, and should do the trick for you.
