Did you know that all Mac computers have the ability to start up in Target Disk Mode?  What that means is, is that you can configure your Mac as a hard drive, which can be plugged in to another computer.  This makes it really easy to copy media between your computer and another system.  And, if you have a MacBook or MacBook Pro, you can configure your laptop as a hard drive that runs on its own battery.

How, you ask?  Well first of all you would have to completely shut down your Mac.  Hold down the T key when you restart your computer.  It will eventually display a FireWire symbol on the screen, which means it is ready to be hooked up to another computer using a FireWire cable.  The computer mounts just like any other computer's desktop.  Then you can copy media between the two!
