    How to connect a Macbook with a Macbook Pro

    Hi
    I cant get my Mac to boot up past the white screen, grey apple syndrom (or something like that). I need to connect my Macbook with the Macbook Pro of a friend with a Firewire to save my data before reinstaling the system. But what Firewire? The input of Macbook Pro is different from the input of Macbook.

    Thank You

    I'm not sure this would even be possible, even if you could connect them. If the MacBook won't boot, the drive won't be mounted, and you probably won't be able to transfer your files anyway. One way round it would be to remove the hard drive from the MacBook, mount it in a cheap caddy and attach it via USB.

    "target disk mode" is a way to recover your files without having to boot the Macbook, but simply by pressing cmd + T right after turning on the lap top. I just dont know what Firewire of them all I must use in order to do that.
