    Default How do you transfer files to a PC from a Mac formated drive ?

    I've been given an apple formated external drive to take some footage from but I us a Windows PC is there a way for me to get the footage from the drive to my PC for editing. I have a solution to trans-code the media files if I can just pull them off the drive.

    How big are the files? If they are less than 4GB each, ask for the files to be provided on a disk formatted as FAT32. Otherwise, take a trip to your nearest Apple store armed with a FAT32 formatted drive and copy the files across.

    You could try this

    mileage may vary

    standard warranty applies ("5 minutes or 15 feet from the store")

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. I don't have a local Apple store to go to so that's not an option. I had tried HFSExplorer but after I'd installed it, it said "No Java virtual Machine". I know I have Java installed but I don't know how to indicate it. Things were much simpler in the old DOS days !

    Thanks again for the suggestions.

    ***Update*** I updated the Java and the HFSExplorer program is now working.

    You probably have to set the PATH/CLASSPATH system environment variables.
