 There are many ways to connect your PC to a Macintosh computer. With the help of a direct connection using your Ethernet cable, you can transfer information from your PC to your Macintosh computer to enable an easy transition to a new computer. The Ethernet cable provides fast data transfer between computers, and can be purchased at computer hardware stores or online. Once both computers are connected to the Ethernet cable, you must manually mount the PC's volume to your Macintosh computer by connecting to the PC server.

•    Turn on your PC and your Mac, plug the Ethernet cable on the back of the computer. Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into your Macintosh computer's Ethernet port.

•    Click the "Finder" icon on your Mac computer's screen dock, and click "Go".

•    Select "Connect to Server" from the drop-down menu.

•    On the Server Address field type "smb://IPaddress/ShareName". Replace the "IPaddress" with your PC's network address and shared user name. Click the "Connect" button to continue.

•    Enter the work group, user name and password for your PC, and select the access folder. Press the "Return" key on your Mac keyboard.

•    Double-click the PC volume on your Mac's desktop screen, and click the file you wish to transfer. To highlight multiple files for transfer, hold down the "Shift" key while clicking the file.

•    Drag and drop the files from the folder to your Mac's desktop screen to transfer them.

•    Click and drag the PC volume icon from the desktop to your screen dock's Trash icon to disconnect from your PC.
