Hi, I will soon be picking up my very first Mac and have a couple of questions regarding the big switch from a pc.
1. My Files:
I have an external hard drive with all my documents, photos and videos backed up. This currently works with my pc. I have Mac drivers for it, so know I can connect it to my mac.
Can I directly transfer these files to my mac, or does the drive need reformatting first? (Yes, I have other places to temporarily store my files)
2. My videos:
They are mostly in WMA format. Is there an app which will play them? Or do I need to convert them first?
3. Mac Setup:
I am not ashamed to admit I know very little about the Mac. I will be working with VoiceOver. So far I have had one training session. I can use the finder, navigate the dock, navigate the menu and browse the internet. I also know how to turn it on and shut it down, but have never switched on a brand new one. I imagine basic setup will be similar to ios. Chose a language, input apple ID and connect to a WiFi Network. Are there any other really important things I need to make sure are switched on or off? Like a firewall? Please only mention the important things. The stuff that can be classed as personal preference I will figure out later.
