    this has probably already been covered before but i dont feel like searching anymore. i have a little apple laptop (POS) that i was using to store pictures and music, but then i got my pc and i have no more use for the mac. problem is i want all those pictures and music, so i need a program (for free) that i can use to convert them over. anybody know of one, send it my way.
