I have a dead imac g4 flat panel with all my files and a dvd drive. I have a working imac same year, same processor but with only a cd drive.


First, I want my files.

Then, I wouldn't mind keeping one of them as a dvd player.


Would appreciate any suggestions!


(I don't actually know if it is the battery or power supply which is dead.)

iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11), G4 Flatpanel, flower pot
