[Micronet] File Migration using Thunderbolt cable

Beth Muramoto
This is my first go at a file migration from one Macbook Pro (old) to another (brand new out of the box) using a thunderbolt cable, or hopefully so.

I followed the same procedure as I would have for a firewire file migration (old laptop in target mode), but all the new Macbook Pro will give me as options is using the ethernet and putting both laptops on the same network. And even with the thunderbolt cable connected to both laptops, the new one can't find the old one. I'm probably missing a step somewhere.

While I'm not adverse to doing it on the network, I was hoping to use the cable as a more direct and hopefully faster (I could be wrong on this though) file migration.

Has another does this and can give me some pointers?

Thanks for any help.

Beth

Thank you SO MUCH for your rescue, Roy! For the tip and the "duh" moment.

Thank you to Ian and Gary for your help as well.

The secret: Instead of selecting Another Mac like we have done in the past, you select the Another Disk option instead.  Then everything shows up familiarly and operates like it should.
