I have an external drive that works perfectly. I have some MAC video files on it but I can't get my PC (Windows XP) or my laptop (Windows 7) to see them. Is there some software I can use?

The video clips Quicktime video clips. I couldn't figure it out so I bought a new external hard drive and had the files re-transferred to it. That was the only way I could solve the problem.

Thanks for the headsup, so was there a problem with the "other"drive  or just wrong format such as fat not ntfs?

Thanks, Merte. Wasn't sure how to close this since it wasn't actually solved. I still don't know about the other drive. I've sent it off to an expert and am waiting to hear back. Thank you for the assistance!

The problem wasn't solved and I had to get a new drive to finish this particular project.
