    hi guys.

    i got some stuff (pc files) stored in my firewire drive. is there a way to mount the drive(s) in windows, so i can access them?

    a quick answer would be appreciated.

    If they are mac formatted HFS then your PC will not be able to read the volumes, even if they do have PC files on them. You need to get a program allows you to read HFS volumes on your PC, like this.

    should

    just plug and play, or it doesn't work. How you formatted the disk will be the determinating factor. That is if you formatted it in windows as Fat32, then both PC and Mac can read and write. If you formatted the disk on a Mac, Windows can't read the disk.
