mac and pc


  My sister has a Mac and wants to change to a pc. I don't know anything about Mac's and wonder if there will be any problems transferring all of her files on the Mac to an IBM compatible pc.
Are the file formats different, etc, and do I need to use a program to convert them if they are different.

Yes...transferring files would not be allowed without a price.  There's a program called "MacOpener".  I saw the ad for it in a pc mag, but can't recall who makes it.  It changes mac files into pc files so they can be opened.
If you use a program like pc-exchange, her mac will be able to read pc formatted disks. This means that all you need to do is re-save the files as RTF (rich text format) or any other format that can be read by your pc ie jpeg for pic's etc. then copy them onto the pc disk and you will be able to read them on a pc.
