I have a headache from spending to many hours downloading softwares and trying different connection to recover what I still might be able to recover from my dead Mac HDD!! I currently have Macdrive and HFSExplorer on my PC, I'm pretty sure one of these soft could be usefull to achieve what I want to do, but they currently dont work! At this point the only thing i can do on my Mac is use the Powerbook initial DVD to reinstall Mac Os X (while holding "command" when booting). Anything else wont work! I get stuck at the grey screen with a blinking question mark. My Mac's HDD is full and I believe this is why it died. So I was hoping to connect my Mac to my PC and use a soft to recover my personal files. But Firewire does not work, neither does USB (none of these connection appear on my PC as an external drive being hooked). And there's no other output on my Mac i can use.... what can I do??
