    Hi All...

    I need to copy off music, movies and pictures from a non booting MBP. I only have PC's running XP, Vista, or 7 at my disposal.

    I tried using HFSExplorer and Macdrive 8, but they both show the mp3's as 0 bytes. I can find some pictures and other files that show up correctly but I can't find where the movies are stored or the bulk of the pictures.

    Is there any way that I can retrieve working files off of the disk with windows? I'm interested in why they show up as 0 bytes

    I googled for "HFS windows" and found some shareware you can try and see if your files show up properly...
