comment How can I remove the launchpad?
No. You cannot completely remove it because it's really a system service. Maybe this will help: technorms.com/18829/control-launchpad. This will tell you how to get rid of all the icons in LaunchPad and then fill them with only the icons you want.

I found a USB 3.0 cable at a local shop for $5. Works perfectly.

Yeah, target disk mode! I'll boot up the old Mac in Target disk mode and connect the two machines with FireWire. Hmm... Not on my new Mac. Thunderbolt? Not on the old Mac... Spend $30 on Thunderbolt/Firewire cable? Apple doesn't recommend it for Target Disk Mode. Target mode was the first thing I thought of too, but suddenly realized that the two machines had different ports. Life is fun. Ended up doing it the old fashion way: USB Stick Drive.

I'll see if I can dig up another USB 3 cable and give it a try. Strange that it works with one on a constant basis, but not the other.

Funny story there... My 2009 MacBook had started to act a bit flaky. Keyboard and trackpad weren't as responsive, and the drive was acting up. My original plan was to buy a new MacBook Pro once Yosemite was released. Old MacBook Pro internal drive crashed, and I ended up reinitializing it and installing Yosemite Beta. So no, they're not running the "same version of Mavericks". I know about crapware, and initialized the WD and reformatted it when I bought it. Still, seems strange it's absolutely blank. The WD is encrypted with Apple's FileVault. Does that do anything?

Occasionally, it shows up on the system report, but most of the time, it doesn't. Doesn't even show the port as having anything in it.
