I am trying to transfer docs from a mac hard drive to my pc that is equiped with windows 7.

I have gone into computer menegement and noticed that it is labled as unallocated. HOw can i change this? Is is not letting me change it to a dynamic disk.

I think that is why HFS Explorere is not picking it up

Help please

What's the file system on the drive? Windows cannot read Mac formatted drives.
Put this drive in a Mac and use a network or some other transfer media.

No clue. How do I find that out?

I read somewhere that downloading the HFSexplorer will allow my PC to read those files.

What kind of media are you referring to?

If it's formatted HSF, HSF explorer may help.

You need MACDRIVE! It's a software that reads MAC partitions in Windows. Google it. :)

I literally just found out about this. I was doing random searches trying to figure this out, and I found an article about this. I'll have to give this a try.

How does it work, like can I literally take all the word/excel docs, pics and itunes music from the mac hard drive and save it on my PC?

Yes, sir! It will allow you to access your hard drive limitless, as if it was NTFS. :)
