Hello all..i am trying to replace a mac hard drive with another...admitadly i am not a mac person so i seem to have messed up and am pressed for time. i have a failling mac drive from a powerbook g4 that i have pulled out and put into an external usb 2.0 drive - i also have the same setup with a new laptop drive (in other words it too is in an eclosure). i need to clone the old drive to the new drive but the only other machine i have to work with is a win xp pro machine.
any ideas on how to do this safely and effectively.
currently the mac drive is not being recognised by windows although the program that i use (paragon drive backup pro) does see it as a free and unformatted drive , i suspect that is due to the different file format.
i have attempted the clone already once to the new drive (from within windows xp ,runnin paragon) but it literally took about 2.5 seconds and now the new drive is being seen in the exact same manner as the original.
please ..any ideas as far as a good program to use or a different method would be greatly appreciated
