Recovering Mac files from external firewire hdd which may have been formatted over with ntfs

I installed a firewire card in a friends computer and connected her external fire wire hdd. When I hooked the drive up to the system which is running win xp pro, in ntfs I could not read the drive. Partition Magic was on the drive and was able to see the partition but did no recognize the partition. I think I may have partitioned the drive in NTFS. My friend now says that she had files on the drive which she has been using on a mac. Is there any software that I can use to recover the mac files from the drive even though it was formatted with NTFS.

Thank You,
Joshua

I've never needed to recover files for a Mac from an external drive before, but all claim to be able to recover from drives that have been reinitialized (which would include reformatting.)
